The other day the Food Network was on in the background as we were getting dinner ready and we caught the tail end of Neely Brown creating some sort of Tomato Pie concoction. I could not stop thinking about it….so we whipped up something similar. And I do have to say, it was every bit as good as I had imagined.
We’re already planning our next tomato pie and have a long list of variations we plan to try.
Here is how we tackled our first one:
Tomatoes (we had grape tomatoes on hand, she used a red and yellow tomato for color)
Salt and Pepper
Crushed Red Pepper
Start by rolling out the pie crust
Next, slice tomatoes and mozzarella and place in a circle around pie crust about 2-3 inches from the edge.
Sprinkle salt and pepper and add red pepper flakes.
Fold edges of pie crust over to hold in all of the yummy goodness.
Brush edges of piecrust with olive oil, drizzle a bit of olive oil over tomatoes and bake for 35 minutes at 375.
We’re thinking about adding garlic and basil to the next one. Maybe even some balsamic vinegar. Perhaps some parmesan as it comes out of the oven. The possibilities are endless!!!
…I think I’m in love!!!
