Tomato Pie

Tomato Pie! Just the sound of it makes me smile... because everything is better en-robed in pastry makes it better. I was inspired by my gardens abundance of tomatoes and my desire to revive old fashioned Southern recipes. This recipe is slightly updated with the inclusion of ricotta and removal of mayonnaise. OH... and it is delicious! Think deep dish pizza with juicy chunks of tomato instead of sauce.

What you need:
4 large ripe tomatoes
20 or so basil leaves
8oz of fresh mozzarella
1/3 cup of ricotta
olive oi1 drizzle
pastry dough

What you do:
1. Preheat your oven to 400 F
2. Roll out your pastry dough and place in a greased pie plate
3. Cut up your tomatoes, basil leaves, and mix in moz, ricott, salt and pepper
4. Place mixture in pie shell
5. Drizzle with olive oil
6. Bake for 35 minutes or so, until the top is brown and bubbly

Enjoy... greedily!

As always, much love, many blessings, and happy baking!
