  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F; line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, garlic, and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper.
  • Season tomatoes lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Spread the dough out on the prepared baking sheet and brush with about 1 tablespoon of the garlic mayonnaise all the way to the edge.
  • Arrange about half the tomatoes on the dough, leaving a 2-inch border (tomatoes can overlap).
  • Scatter basil over tomatoes.
  • Made a second layer of tomatoes and basil.
  • Fold the edges of the dough toward the center (will not cover filling); brush with garlic mayonnaise to help secure the folds in the crust.
  • Drizzle a teaspoon of olive oil on the tomatoes and lightly season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 30 to 40 minutes; let set for 30 minutes to allow tomato juices to redistribute.
  • Cut the cooled pie into wedges and serve each with a dollop of the remaining garlic mayonnaise.
