Tomato Pie

Linda Wasko


It's that time of year. Fresh tomatoes from the farmers market, or, if you're lucky, from your own garden. The first time I heard about this pie, it sounded very strange. It was really good, though. Of course I added some bacon and garlic and mozzarella cheese. I found another recipe for this but didn't care for it as much. However, I did steal the croutons idea from that one. And changed to flavored instead of plain. It's awesome. Extremely flavorful and gets requested for every picnic we go to. WAIT A MINUTE!!!!! Do you think that's why I get invited? Enjoy!!

9 inch pie shell
1 1/2 c
flavored croutons. i like to use the garlic and herb flavored.
5 or 6
plum tomatoes, peeled and diced. you want a nice tomato base, so use more or less depending on size of tomato
green onions - sliced to preferred thickness. use the white and the green parts. if you don't have green onion, regular will work. just dice very small.
1 c
bacon - fried crispy and chopped
fresh basil to taste or dried basil to taste
2 or 3 clove
garlic - minced (i use more, but i really love garlic)
1/2 tsp
dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 c
light mayonnaise - not salad dressing
1/2 c
cheddar jack cheese
1/2 c
mozzarella cheese

How to Make Tomato Pie


  • 1Blind bake the pie shell on 425 f until light brown.
  • 2Place croutons in a baggie and break into smaller pieces with a mallet. Then spread in bottom of pie crust. They will absorb excess juices from the tomatoes plus add additional flavor.
  • 3Spread the diced tomatoes over the croutons.
  • 4Sprinkle salt and pepper, crushed garlic, basil, oregano, onions and bacon over the tomatoes.
  • 5Mix mayo with the cheeses and spread over the top to the edges.
  • 6You can toss some additional bacon and onion on top for presentation.
  • 7Bake at 350 f for approximately 25 minutes. When the top is nice and golden, it's done.
  • 8Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes then dig in. It's wonderful when warm, but just as good at room temperature.
