Tomato Pie Recipe

This summer a friend stopped by bringing me a Tomato Pie she picked up at a local farmers market. It’s the kind of tasty goodness that one can not stop eating! Flaky crust, seasoned tomatoes all topped with a thick layer of a parmesan cheese mixture.

I know…you want a bite right now!

Not only was it tasty, but most likely high in calories!

 

Fast forward to dinner the other night…

I realize my garden is producing quite a few Roma tomatoes {not much of anything else is growing} but lots of tomatoes! Oh, and tons of basil! Hmm…what could I make?!

Remembering my tomato pie experience from earlier in the summer, I began to search on Pinterest for the perfect Tomato Pie recipe. Fat ones and skinny ones…there are tons of Tomato Pie recipes out there. I knew that I wanted a lower calorie tomato pie recipe, so I kind of came up with my own!

 

Not only was this beautiful to look at, but amazingly yummy. I will be making this again…even as an appetizer! The perfect way to impress guests!

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Use a pie plate or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Using a Misto or non-stick spray, lightly dust the bottom of the pie plate or baking sheet with oil. Roll out dough according to package instructions.

Slice tomatoes 1/4″ thick.

Sprinkle the bottom of the pie crust with a small amount of cheese. Layer the sliced tomatoes in the center of the dough leaving a 1 1/2″ of dough free of oil for folding over.

Sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic powder and basil over tomatoes. Then top with remaining cheese.

Fold the dough up over the tomatoes and crimp the edges. (The center of the tomatoes will not be covered.)

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Remove from the oven. Allow cooling before serving. Serve at room temperature or slightly warm.
