Best Tomato Pie

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Cheesy tomato basil pie is a summer staple at my house. I always make two: one for me and one to give away. Use fat-free mayonnaise to cut down on oiliness (and calories!)."

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Press pie crust into a 9-inch pan or glass pie plate; fold excess dough under and press to form a thick edge. Cover edges with foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until light brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese over the bottom. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Drain tomato wedges in a colander or on paper towels. Arrange tomato wedges in the pie shell. Sprinkle basil and garlic on top.
  5. Combine remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Spread evenly over tomatoes; do not spread onto crust.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden and bubbly, 35 to 40 minutes. Cover edges with a ring of foil to keep from overcooking if needed. Garnish pie with whole basil leaves and serve warm.


  • Editor's Note:
  • The directions for prebaking the crust are based on the particular brand mentioned. Follow instructions on the box if using a different brand.
