Sicilian Tomato Pie

It's just the beginning of tomato season but soon you will have more of them than you know what to do with.  This recipe combines a delicious blend of flaky pie crust, fresh tomatoes and onions, two different cheeses and of course the perfect seasoning blend. For this recipe you will need:

  • 2 pounds tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup gruyere cheese, grated
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup Victoria Taylor’s Sicilian Seasoning
  • 1 prepared pie crust

Preheat oven to 425° Bake the empty pie crust for 5-10 minutes until lightly browned.  Remove the crust from the oven and allow it to cool completely.  Reduce oven temperature to 350°. Place tomatoes in a single layer on paper towels; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt and let stand for 10 minutes.  Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Sauté onion and ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper until onion is translucent, about 4 minutes.  Pat tomatoes dry with a paper towel. Layer the tomatoes, onion and Sicilian in the crust. Stir together the cheese and mayonnaise; spread over the pie. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until lightly browned, shielding edges with foil to prevent excessive browning.   Serve warm. Best, Victoria
