Recipe Box, Summer Slab Tomato Pie

My sweet neighbor brought me some tomatoes from his garden

 

 

 

 

I couldn’t wait to make the first Summer Tomato Pie of the season!

 

 

 

 

I decided to make it “slab” style, inspired by this Southern Tomato Slab Pie

 

 

 

 

It’s very similar to a pizza

 

 

 

 

Start with a pie crust dough round and roll the edge over and pinch to create a border

Use a parchment lined baking sheet to make serving and clean up a breeze

 

 

 

 

Spread with a generous layer of mayonnaise, keep it Southern and use Duke’s of course

 

 

 

 

Sprinkle mayo with chopped green onions

 

 

 

 

Cover with 1/2 of cheese

 

 

 

 

Next a layer of tomatoes

 

 

 

 

Season with salt & pepper and cover with remaining cheese

 

 

 

 

You can do this ahead of time, refrigerate and bake it later if you like

 

 

 

 

After baking you will have this cheesy, golden, juicy, tomato delight!

 

 

 

Garnish pie with fresh basil if desired {I forgot 😳 }

 

Summer Tomato Slab Pie

  • Servings: varied
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

1 pie crust dough round

3 ripe summer tomatoes, sliced

2 scallions, chopped

1/2 cup quality mayonnaise, like Duke’s

1 cup Mexican Cheese Blend Shreds

garlic salt & pepper

fresh basil chiffonade for garnish, optional

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.  Place dough on paper and fold edge of crust over about 1/2 inch and pinch to form a border all around crust

Spread with an even layer of mayonnaise and sprinkle with green onions.  Sprinkle with 1/2 of cheese.  Lay tomato slices evenly over crust, cutting some in half to fit pie.  Season with garlic salt and pepper.  Cover with remaining cheese.  Can be refrigerated at this point until baking.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden and cooked through.  Garnish with basil if desired. Cut into wedges to serve or small squares for appetizers.

Note: you can double this by using 2 raw pie crust dough rounds, re-rolling into a rectangle and use the whole sheet pan

    Jenna, We’re waiting not so patiently for the first tomatoes of the season and a taste of summer! My hubby always asks for a tomato pie (or two) when tomatoes are at their peak. 😉

    Looks so good. I think I may have to add some bacon and then it would be like a BLT, without the lettuce. 😁

  9. Looks delicious, but I would use Hellmans or Kraft mayo. Duke’s tastes too much like pickles to me, cannot stand it.
