Healthy Tomato Pie

"I modified a full-fat southern tomato pie recipe to have more flavor (bring on the herbs!) and way less fat and calories. Since I'm now pregnant for the second time and craving tomatoes again, this dish has really hit the spot! Super easy, and you can vary the add-ins--crumbled bacon, onions, different kinds of cheese, etc work well."

  • For the crust: Preheat oven to 350. Mix together flour, salt, and sugar, and stir in oil and milk with fork until dough becomes a ball. Roll out into pie crust and put in greased pie plate.
  • Cover edges with foil and bake crust for about 25 minutes, until bottom is cooked and very lightly browned. Remove and let cool.
  • Layer tomato slices in pie plate and cover with a layer of basil, salt and pepper. Repeat until all the tomatoes and half of basil is used up.
  • Mix together mozzarella, feta, mayonnaise, green onions, remaining basil, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread on top of tomatoes. Top with parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes or until top is golden brown. Halfway through baking time, remove foil from crust so that crust can brown.
  • Serve and enjoy!

I got married to my high school sweetheart in August 06 at the ripe old age of 21, and my husband Luke and I just moved to Birmingham, AL from Auburn. He's in his second year of dental school at UAB. I have a BFA in Graphic Design, and I'm a designer at Time Inc and doing freelance design work on the side. I'm planning to go to grad school for a Master's of Fine Arts in Book Arts some time or another. I had deferred because I think the timing will be better once Luke gets out of school and perhaps I might not need to commute the hour over there. Getting married and getting HALF of a refrigerator instead of sharing one with seven other girls really ignited a cooking fire in me! Lately I've been trying to cut out the sugar, which is hard, because Luke likes sugary pancakes and cereal, and because I like baking things. I need to quit baking! Trying to lose the newlywed nine so I can fit into my winter clothes.
