Take-out Tuesday, Summer Cherry Tomato Pie

It’s time to celebrate Summer tomatoes!

Let’s make a pie!

Tomato Pies are a Summer staple in the South

and we always plant cherry tomatoes in the garden

My grandson, Big E adores them and will eat them like candy

The first step for this pie is roasting them on a lined sheet pan


Roll them around in olive oil and season with salt and pepper

Roast them at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes until they pop

roasted tomatoes

While the tomatoes are roasting,

mix ricotta with Italian seasoning,

chopped basil and Parmesan cheese


Place pie dough into a pie pan

and spread with 1/2 of the ricotta mixture

Top with 1/2 of the Manchego cheese

Put the roasted cherry tomatoes on top of the cheese in an even layer,

then top with remaining ricotta and Manchego

Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes

Let pie sit a few minutes to set up before slicing

Garnish with fresh basil

  4. Now why haven’t I thought to use the little cherry tomatoes in tomato pie? I’ve always just grabbed (and picked) the big ‘uns. The cherry size really are sweeter. That E’s face is pretty sweet too. — Tomato pie tonight with a side of summer shrimp. thanks!

    Looks yummy Jenna! I’m ready for some garden fresh tomatoes. We had some heirlooms that were almost ripe on the vine, but raccoon or some other critter made off with them. I guess we’ll be buying them at the Farmer’s Market in a couple of weeks. Happy Tuesday ♥

  7. That looks really good!

    When I first looked at the post I thought I was looking at cherry pie, then I realized it was a cherry tomato pie! What a fabulous idea. I’ve never heard of anything like this before but I can tell I would love it. I used to grow cherry tomatoes and we would get prolific crops of them and really enjoy them daily. Don’t know why I stopped growing them. I’ll have to think about it for next season. Thanks

    So easy and yummy. I have never made tomato pie or tart. I was watching Martha Bakes the other night when ai could not sleep. She made a wonderful tomato tart. Yours made me realize I need to make one.

  15. Kitty says:
