Tomato Pie Recipe

Use sunny tomatoes that are firm but not too ripe so the results are delicious rather than too juicy. —Lois Morgan, Edisto Beach, South Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. + chilling Bake: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons ice water
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 medium tomatoes (1-3/4 pounds), cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 4 Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  • 1. In a large bowl, mix flour and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 30 minutes or overnight.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Line unpricked pastry with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice.
  • 3. Bake 20-25 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned. Remove foil and weights; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until light brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 4. In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, cheese, green onions and seasonings. Arrange one-third of the tomatoes in crust; spread with one-third of the mayonnaise mixture. Repeat layers twice. Bake 25 minutes. Top with bacon; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until filling is bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes. Yield: 8 servings.

"I made this pie for our brunch this past weekend and we thought it was outstanding! I found the previous comments quite helpful and followed several of them when I prepared the pie. Since I was using my heirloom tomatoes, I drained the slices on paper towels and added an egg to the mayonnaise mixture. I also substituted my garden-fresh basil for the oregano and omitted the coriander. The crust is delicious and takes a bit of time to prepare, so in the future, I will make it the night before. Definitely a "keeper" recipe and one that's well worth the extra effort!"

"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!"

"This was an interesting dish. I had never had a tomato pie before. I thought is was very flavorful. I significantly reduced the amount of oregano and added some basil and parsley as well. You could use Italian seasoning if you like. Overall a delicious dish."

"Ok, I cheat and use packaged pie crust... but I don't use the foil and pie-weights method; I just place a same-size pie plate on top of the crust and set something ovenproof inside (I use my small cast-iron skillet, but any small pot with some water in it would work). I also add some fresh basil from my garden along with the oregano. (I use 1 tsp dried oregano) It is delicious, especially with fresh garden tomatoes!"

"This pie was outstanding. The crust very good but a little hard to make because of the weighing down. But well worth the effort. I used tomatoes that weighed 1 and 3/4 lbs."
