Layers of cheese, plump, juicy tomatoes, and fresh garden herbs combine to make Tomato Pie, a savory pie that everyone will adore.

For the ideal summer lunch, serve this tomato pie dish warm or chilled.

One of the most iconic summer dishes is tomato pie.

This delectable tomato pie is exactly how summer would taste if it had a flavor! My thoughts start to wander to fresh food when the weather starts to warm up.

Nothing compares to the flavor of a freshly picked, juicy tomato! With an appealing blend of mozzarella and cheddar cheese, this tomato pie dish evokes the flavor of summer!

Put tomato pie on your “must make” list if you’ve never tasted it before. Absolutely everyone (even children) adores it since it is so wonderful.

My niece can’t get enough of it! You can get an idea of what this pie tastes like by briefly closing your eyes and imagining the most exquisite fresh-from-scratch pizza prepared entirely with ingredients picked straight from the garden and served on a light flaky crust.

Make the tomato pie in advance.

Tomato pie is one of my favorite foods because you can make it ahead of time and serve it cold, or you can make it for a “Meatless Monday” meal and serve it warm or at room temperature.

Children enjoy it because it tastes like pizza, while adults enjoy the fresh, summertime flavors of basil and tomatoes straight from the vine.

To avoid using the oven during the warmest part of the day, I like to make tomato pies in the morning. In the evening, I serve them with a fantastic, fresh salad from the garden for a quick meal on a busy night.

Advice on Making Tomato Pie

The recipe for tomato pie calls for peeling the tomatoes, and I have a technique that makes the job simple and quick!

  1. Before starting this recipe, take a look at How to Peel Tomatoes!
  2. As long as the tomatoes are ripe and juicy, it doesn’t matter what kind you use in this recipe. Use extra sliced tomatoes; omit grape or cherry tomatoes. Simply serve Romas? Perfect!!
  3. Make sure to thoroughly drain your tomatoes as directed per the recipe.
  4. Before adding the tomatoes, sprinkle the crust with a thin coating of cheese to keep it flaky.

This recipe is ideal for using the abundance of tomatoes you may harvest from your garden, whether you serve it hot or cold.
