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 ๐Ÿ˜ณ }

Summer Tomato Slab Pie

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Course Main Course, Side Dish
Cuisine American, Southern


  • 1 pie crust dough round
  • 3 ripe summer tomatoes sliced
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 1/2 cup quality mayonnaise like Dukeโ€™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

    Oh yum! I want a slab!!!

  3. Mary says:

    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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Jenna, tomato pie is a favorite of mine. We are waiting on those delicious vine-ripened tomatoes. I like the simplicity of this recipe! Happy Thursday at the beach!

  5. We won’t get good tomato season until August but I’m holding onto this one. It would be a great recipe for the lake and it looks delish!

    • August, wow, what about corn, peaches, strawberries? Yes, this is perfect for the lake, you can even cut it into squares to serve as apps when you have one of your many gatherings!

  6. Cyndi Raines says:

    Looks so good. I think I may have to add some bacon and then it would be like a BLT, without the lettuce. ๐Ÿ˜

  7. Sharon Mann says:

    Now I’m hungry…looks delicious!

  8. Tomatoes are my favorite summer delight. This looks delicious! I ususallly add fresh tomatoe slices to pizza when I make it in the summer. Iโ€™ll try this for sure. Thanks Jenna. I know you love your neighbor ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  10. Jill Kuhn says:

    Wow! You have fresh tomatoes already?! We are just starting the growing season here for fresh produce… Nothing like a fresh home grown tomato! ๐Ÿ… Your pie looks delish! ๐Ÿ‘

  11. Oh, looks wonderful!

  12. Karen says:

    There is nothing better than fresh right off the vine summer tomatoes. Your pie looks great.
