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!!

How to Make Tomato Pie


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