DIRECTIONS

  • Prebake a 9" pie crust according to the package directions until barely golden brown.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degree farenheit.
  • Remove from oven and add the shredded cheeses.
  • Let cool.
  • Prepare pesto by grinding together all the ingredients and adding enough oil to form a coarse,thick paste.
  • Core tomatoes and slice into 1/2 inch thick rings.
  • Salt the slices liberally and place them on paper towels for 30 minutes.
  • Press slices to extract all the liquid and wipe off as much salt as possible.
  • Assemble the pie: Place the sliced mozzarella onto the cooled pie shell (arrange enough slices to closely fit into the shell).
  • All the slices you may have might not be needed.
  • Spread the pesto over the mozzarella in a thick layer to coat the cheese well.
  • Arrange sliced tomatoes on top and season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 15 min until cheese melts and pie is golden brown.
