Traditional Southern Tomato Pie

Tomato Pie is a savory pie made with tomatoes, mayonnaise, and cheese and it’s baked in a flaky pie crust. So good!<

You can make a homemade pie crust. I have two recipes for you, Never-Fail Pie Crust and Coconut Oil Pie Crust. Both are wonderful!

As well, you can simply purchase a ready-made pie crust as I did.

Traditional Southern Tomatoe Pie recipe is cheesy and buttery and the perfect recipe!

For this Southern Tomato Pie you’ll want to drain the tomatoes really well to prevent the crust from getting soggy. Salt the tomatoes, salt pulls out the liquid. However, if you salt the tomatoes, you probably don’t want to add salt anywhere else in the recipe.

I have found through trial and error that this pie slices much better if you peel the tomatoes and dice (instead of slice) the tomatoes.

Traditional Southern Tomato Pie a delicious, savory recipe
