Excellent dish when tomatoes are in season. To cut calories I sometimes use fat-free mayo and cheese and it is still wonderful. 8/31/07 After reading the recent review, I realized I failed to mention that you should let this set about ten minutes after removing from oven.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-bake crust according to directions. After removing from oven, sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella on crust and allow to cool. (This can be done ahead of time.).
  2. Drain sliced tomatoes on paper towels.
  3. Arrange tomato slices on cooled crust. Sprinkle garlic salt and basil over tomatoes. Combine mayonnaise and remaining mozzarella and spread over tomatoes. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over all.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

I was really looking forward to making this recipe and I was very pleased! I made just as posted and it was delicious! This is going to be a summer favorite... Thanks for posting Vicki in CT! Made for ZWT4.

Excellent recipe! I made a just a few tweaks; I replaced the 1/2 cup of mozzarella on the bottom with an equal amount of cheddar cheese. Also, to make sure my seasonings were even, I mixed the garlic salt into the mayo mixture. I had much better success with the recipe than other tomato pie recipes - the cheese on the bottom goes a long way to keeping the crust from getting soggy!

After reading your review of Grilled Basil-And-Garlic-Stuffed Chicken, I just had to try both! I only had a frozen deep dish pie crust, so that is what I used. Next time, I think I will use a regular one. I also used cherry tomatoes since my plant is full of these beauties right now. I baked my torte for about 40 min and it was so pretty and golden brown. I did wrap some foil around the edge of the pie crust to keep it from burning... worked out great. My torte was a little runny... probably b/c I used so many tomatoes ( due to the deep dish) and that I couldn't wait to cut into it!!! Very good flavor however... I will try this again with some romas in the near future... Thanks for sharing!!!
