Oh My…Tomato Pie

Honestly, I never heard about tomato pie until I lived in the south. Even then, for some reason, it just held no appeal for me…oh boy,was I blind.  Finally, after several “suggestions” from Pinterest, I decided to give it a go.  Pleasant surprise…despite the simplistic nature of the ingredients, it truly tasted…well, just like a fresh summer day.  Let me give you the recipe!

The usual cast of characters…although I have experimented with some guest ingredients like bacon and corn…

1. Blind baked pie shell. I typically have several homemade pie crusts in the freezer, but store bought is fine…no judgment

2. 1/2 to 1 cup fresh chopped basil, extra points if you grow your own

3. 5-6 freshly chopped tomatoes with the juice squeezed out….I save and freeze the juice to use in stocks and broths

5. 1/2 cup mayonnaise…I use full fat, I assume reduced fat would work, if you try it let me know.

6. 2 cups chopped and shredded cheese…I use whatever I have on hand, for this pie I used cubed mozzarella and shredded cheddar.

7. A few dashes of hot sauce and a sprinkling of sea salt

Easy peasy steps

1. Placed juiced tomatoes in blind baked crust

2. Sprinkle chopped basil and sea salt on juiced tomatoes

3. Mix mayonnaise, cheese and hot sauce together until it is the consistency of a “slushy snowball” and spread on chopped basil…gently spread!

4. Bake 30-40 minutes in a 350 degree oven…I don’t cover it.

5. Remove, cool and enjoy!


It has been a busy weekend here…and as you can see even the Princess has her limits. It made for a good naptime however!

  1. I have never had Tomato Pie, but your recipe seems easy enough for even me to try. I don’t know anyone here in New England that makes it, so I guess it is a Southern dish. Always need to be open to new things don’t we? The Princess is always beautiful- love the photo! Too cute!! Thank-you for this recipe and lovely post.

  2. I have made Tomato Pie for years from recipe I found in Southern Living, I believe. Quite similar to yours, but mine calls for 1 cup diced onion, 4 quartered and sliced medium tomatoes, 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese, 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup chopped basil, and I always have used 1/2 cup LIGHT mayonnaise. I use the Pillsbury piecrusts which come two rolls in package. This recipe calls for 1 baked pie crust and to make two layers of all ingredients. I love this so much I make them many times during the summer and even eat a large slice for breakfast with coffee. (The addition of hot sauce in yours sounds good also).

    1. Good…I am going to use the light mayo next time. I love to switch up the cheeses and use what I have on hand. Feta is also very good. I am so glad to have found thIs recipe. Summer on a plate I think.


  3. I have never made this either. But I love anything with tomatoes and cheese. It could even be the refined cousin of pizza. Pinning.
