This fresh savory tomato pie is layered with cheddar and mozzarella cheese, garlic and basil! Serve this delicious vegetarian meal as a main dish or side with grilled chicken.

There was a time I absolutely detested tomatoes. Every one I ate tasted bland and flavorless (blah!) so they didn’t make it to my plate often.  What a shame!

It wasn’t until I tasted a juicy fresh off the vine tomato that convinced me that tomatoes need to be the star of the menu more often.

If you are lucky enough to grow your own tomatoes then you are probably harvesting loads of those juicy babies now! I picked up these roma tomatoes from my farmer’s market for next to nothing!

My purchase lightened the load (barely) from one of my favorite organic produce stands and my goal was to make tomato sauce, but those plans got derailed as the days ticked away. Does that happen to you too? Big plans for a fun project that only gets to the planning stage? Humph!

Well, I can’t say I was too disappointed because I made this scrumptious tomato pie instead!  What a tasty spring and summer meal!

This pie resembles a margarita pizza, except the tomatoes are tripled from what you might be used to!

Add this pie to your brunch menu or enjoy a slice for a light lunch. This is easy to make and you can save even more time if you use a purchased pie crust like I did.

If you prefer a homemade crust, then be sure to check out the recipe I used to make these meat and potato hand pies.

    I am drooling over this recipe. Our tomatoes are not doing well this year, such a bummer. They would be fantastic in this recipe.

    Since I knew we were moving, I only planted two small cherry tomato plants in my garden this year. Your delicious looking tomato pie makes me wish I had homegrown tomatoes sitting on my counter right now.

      Oh, I bet those cherry tomatoes are delicious though! Next year you’ll have your full grown tomatoes!

    This looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it with our tomatoes. I also love the pie dish. Where could I get one?

      This is best with homegrown tomatoes! I always look for unique dish ware at discount stores like Marshall’s or Home Goods, but any pie plate will do!
