  • Sift together flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture resembles small peas. Add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork, until flour mixture is moistened. Add just enough water that a handful of dough clumps together when squeezed. Form dough into a ball, roll out into a large rectangle, and press gently into the bottom and up the sides of a 9x12-inch casserole.

  • Bake crust in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Layer sliced tomatoes on baked crust. Sprinkle with green onions and basil, and season with salt and pepper.

  • Mix together Cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and mayonnaise in a bowl. Spread cheese mixture over tomatoes.

  • Bake until edges are lightly browned and cheese mixture is melted and bubbly, 40 to 50 minutes.
