  • 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • 1 9-inch prebaked deep dish pie shell
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 10 chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 4 peeled and sliced tomatoes (or lots of tommy toe tomato’s)
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheddar
  • 1/2 cup Jalapeno Pimento Cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and pre-bake the deep dish pie crust according to the package instructions.
  2. Start by blanching the tomatoes and then slicing them. Place the sliced tomatoes in a colander to drain off excess moisture. Pat with a paper towel to absorb any excess liquid. You do not want a runny pie!
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, pimento cheese, mozzarella cheese, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create a creamy and cheesy mixture.
  4. Now, it’s time to assemble the pie. Layer the tomato slices, fresh basil leaves, and onion in the pre-baked pie crust. Season the layers with salt and pepper to enhance the flavors.
  5. Spread the prepared mayonnaise and cheese mixture on top of the tomato layers, ensuring it covers the entire surface evenly.
  6. Bake the pie in the preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until the top becomes lightly browned and bubbly.
  7. Once baked, remove the tomato pie from the oven and let it cool slightly. Cut it into slices and serve while still warm.

Enjoy this delicious tomato pie as a delightful appetizer or a tasty main course!
