I had an abundance of Roma tomatoes, and this is my favorite flavor combo for eating tomatoes, so today I tried it out in pie form.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Flakiest Pie Crust ever
This recipe is made using a pre-baked pie crust.
This picture is of an UNBAKED pie crust.
2
Slice tomatoes fairly thick. You can roast these various ways, in a skillet, in the oven, on a grill. I used my electric griddle. Drizzle olive oil on cooking surface, place tomato slices on and cook on med high heat for about 5 min. Flip and turn off heat. Set aside until ready to use.
3
Grate cheese, I use Asadero cheese, which is similar to muenster. Chop about 1 c of fresh cilantro.
4
This is the Thai garlic chile sauce I use.
5
Scatter a small amount of grated cheese on bottom of pie crust. Place tomatoes around, then spoon small amount of Thai sauce on each tomato, then sprinkle on some chopped cilantro. Repeat process with one or two more layers, it will depend on how many tomatoes you use, how large around they are and how many you use per layer. For final layer, leave off the cilantro and add a little more cheese on top.
6
Bake at 375° on middle rack for about 40 min or till cheese in melted. Once pie has cooled, garnish with additional cilantro.
