So without further ado – Here is Sasha’s Tomato Pie Recipe…… 


Tomato Pie
Write a review
  1. 1 pie crust
  2. 5 medium to large garden fresh tomatoes
  3. 10 basil leaves
  4. 1/2 bunch scallions
  5. 1/2 cup mayo (Hellmains)
  6. 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  7. 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  8. salt and pepper
  1. You can either make your own pie crust or buy one and bake it according to the directions on back of package.
  2. Make a small x in the bottom of each tomato and drop into boiling water. As soon as you see the skin begin to peel off take them out of the water. Usually takes less than a minute. Once the tomatoes are cool enough to handle peel the skin off and slice into 1/4 round slices. Lay out a few layers of paper towels and put your slices in a single layer on top of it. If space is limited and you need to stack place 3 more rows of paper towels on top of tomatoes and and the next row. Finish off with a few rows of paper towel and press down gently. The less water in the tomatoes the better the pie turns out.
  3. Shred your 2 cheeses and add to the mayo, stir together. Set aside.
  4. Slice your scallions, both white and green parts. Lay your basil leaves on top of each other - roll into a log and slice. Mix the two together and set aside.
  1. Once you've cooked the crust you can start to assemble. Lay out a nice layer of tomatoes (about 1/2 of the slices), add 1/2 of the scallion and basil mixture, salt and pepper. Do one more layer of tomatoes and the rest of the scallion and basil mixture, salt and pepper. Drop spoonfuls of cheese mixture onto the top.
  2. Place on a cookie sheet and put into a 325 degree oven for 30 minutes.
