A wonderful pie bursting with the sunny flavours of sun-dried and fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 200 C.
  2. Slice mozzarella and tomatoes.
  3. Chop sun-dried tomatoes.
  4. Spread mustard on the bottom of the pie shell and sprinkle the flour on top.
  5. Layer the fresh tomatoes on the shell and sprinkle the sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts on top of the tomato slices.
  6. Arrange mozzarella slices on top of everything.
  7. Peel and finely chop the garlic clove.
  8. Whisk together eggs and half-and-half.
  9. Add the chopped garlic, chopped basil and seasonings to the egg mixture and whisk to combine.
  10. Pour the egg mixture into the pie shell.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 40 minutes.
  12. For a more Greek touch, try using feta cheese instead of mozzarella and add a few sliced olives to the pie (and remember you'll need less salt in a feta pie:-).

Prepared for my daughter and her boyfriend and they were very pleased with the results. Fast and easy and very flavorful. Decided to substitute a substantial amount of very fresh parsley for the basil and it worked out well. Would definitely make again.

I had to improvise on the ingredients a bit - used roasted red peppers instead of the sun dried tomatoes (just a preference thing) and added a wonderful fresh from the garden sweet onion cut in rings. This was very good - I will make this again. A great recipe for the vegetarian in the house.

This is a very nice recipe, that breathes the mediterrenean. I had a little problem though: my pie looked done after 20 min in surround heat, though was woobely when I took it out. I turned on bottom heat after, but when I finally took it out, the bottom still remained soggy. I will try it again with bottom heat and post an update. The taste was great though. Thanks for sharing.
