Bake 25 minutes. Top with bacon; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until filling is bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes. Yield: 8 servings.

Great recipes.. I layed my tomatoes on paper towels to drain, and I used fresh basil from my garden. My family loved this recipes.
This was really good, but it took my pie 45 minutes (not 5-10) to come to bubbly... By then the tomatoes had really broken down and there was a 1/2 inch of soupy stuff in the bottom of the pie crust. It tasted good, but next time I won't wait for bubbles! I made a pie crust with my regular shortening recipe instead of the one matched with this recipe.
I make this with fresh basil & garlic, instead of the coriander & oregano, and it gets rave reviews. I lay the fresh tomatoes on paper towels to drain as they are too juicy to go straight into the pie. Absolutely delicious recipe!
This wasn't as complicated as I thought. I have a problem with dough as I usually cook it too much and the results are crunchy. Regardless, this was still a very tasty dish. Will definitely make it again - so I can practice working with dough.
I made this today and it was an instant hit with the whole family. At my daughter's suggestion I added a layer of sliced polenta with rounds about 3/4" thick on the bottom of the pie shell for the last 15 minutes of baking, then continued with the layers as directed. Yummy!
