  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
  • 1-1/4 pounds tomatoes (5 large), cut into 1/2-inch slices, seeded
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Unroll crust into a 9-in. pie plate; flute edge. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Line unpricked crust with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake on a lower oven rack until edge is golden brown, 10-15 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake until bottom is golden brown, 3-6 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Reduce oven setting to 350°. Place half of the tomatoes in crust. Top with onions and remaining tomatoes. Sprinkle with basil, salt and pepper. Combine mayonnaise and cheddar cheese; spread over tomatoes, leaving 1-1/2 in. around the edge. Sprinkle with bacon and Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake until tomatoes are tender, 30-35 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

    This was a huge hit at our house. I added a layer of cooked chicken between the tomato layers to make it heartier, and also used a cornmeal crust. Excellent!

    This pie is a summertime favorite! I use regular beefsteak tomatoes from our garden and they work just fine. It fills your mouth with flavor with every bite and is so good that we eat it once a week during tomato season.

    It was tasty but I may not make it again, for a meal anyway, perhaps for an appetizer or something-- I did bake pie shell for about 15 mins prior and blotted extras moisture from tomatoes, which kept it from being soggy.

    Simply amazing. It is easy to put together and once you follow the first recipe, you can adapt it to your taste and seasonings.
