Tomato Pie

Tomato Pie recipe from

 A few weekends ago I took my mom with me to the Soulard Farmer’s Market in St. Louis. It’s probably my favorite Saturday morning activity! All of the vendors are out, the prices are the best, and the fresh goods are really incomparable! Before we left my husband warned me that he’d be sad if I didn’t come home with all of the ingredients for homemade salsa. He’d been begging me to make some for weeks. I bought a giant box of tomatoes at the farmer’s market and ended up canning tomatoes, making homemade and canned salsa, and making this amazing tomato pie!  If you’ve never tried tomato pie, you absolutely have to! You layer a pie crust with freshly sliced tomatoes, fresh basil, and onion. Then you spoon a delicious cheesy mixture on top!  

Tomato Pie

  1. 5 tomatoes, peeled and sliced (Roma work best)
  2. 10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  3. 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  4. 1 (9-inch) prebaked deep dish pie shell
  5. 1 cup grated mozzarella
  6. 1 cup grated cheddar
  7. 3/4 cup mayonnaise (or half mayo, half Greek yogurt)
  8. 2 Tbsp fresh grated Parmesan Cheese
  9. Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the tomatoes in a colander in the sink in 1 layer. Sprinkle with salt and allow to drain for 10 minutes. Use a paper towel to pat fry the tomatoes and make sure all of the juice is out. (You don't want wet tomatoes or your pie will turn out soggy).
  3. Layer the tomato slices, basil, and onion in pie shell. Season with salt and pepper. Combine the grated cheeses and mayonnaise together. Spread mixture on top of the tomatoes and sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. To serve, cut into slices and serve warm.
