One of my favorite things about tomato pie is that you can make it ahead and serve it cold; or you can prepare it to serve as a ‘Meatless Monday’ dinner, serving warm or at room temperature. Kids love it because it’s reminiscent of pizza, adults love the fresh summery flavors of from the vine tomatoes and basil.

I like to prepare this in the morning to avoid have the oven on during the hottest part of the day and then in the evening I serve it alongside a great garden fresh salad for an easy dinner on a busy night.

The directions in this recipe call to peel the tomatoes and I have a method that makes the chore extremely easy and quick! Check out How to Peel Tomatoes before beginning this recipe!
The type of tomatoes you use in this recipe doesn’t really matter as long as they’re ripe and juicy… no grape or cherry tomatoes, just use more sliced tomatoes.  Just have romas?  Perfect!!

Be sure to drain your tomatoes well according to the recipe.  Adding a thin layer of cheese to the crust before adding the tomatoes keeps it nice and flaky!
