|HOLY shit tomatoes!|
Tomato Pie serves 2 greedy people
1 pie crust (I cheated and used one from Downtown Creamery and Bakery)
1 ball fresh mozzarella
2 large ripe tomatoes (I used our Carbons and another yellow and red one I can't think of the name! - just use meaty ones)
Olive oil, salt and pepper and basil
Line a tart pan with the pie dough - I used my removable bottom one - and line with parchment, fill with baking beans and par bake at 350 degrees for about 15 min. Remove and let cool slightly. Chop/shred the mozzarella and sprinkle around the bottom of the tart. Slice tomatoes about 1/4 inch thick and blot dry on paper towels then place in the tart pan. Sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper then back at 375 degrees for about 30 min or until bubbly. Remove from pan and sprinkle with basil.
And can I tell you how exciting this was?! MY tomatoes and MY okra - that's right - we grew them both - ok, not the red onions - but they will be planted next year! Okra Salad happiness.
Post Note: last night I made 2 savory pie/tarts like above - one was freeform with potatoes and mozzarella the other was a variation on the tomato except instead of cheese I did a layer of caramelized onions - holy shit that was good!
