If you were to ask me about my favorite FRUIT/VEGGIE of the summer, I would tell you hands down the tomato. I enjoy going to the farmers market and eyeing all of the different varieties of tomatoes. It seems like there are new ones all of the time. The green zebra is currently a favorite. They make me wide-eyed and all kinds of happy 🙂
Since my neighbor gave me a plethora of tomatoes I decided it was time to make my favorite summer dish for you. Seriously y’all! It is SOOO good that my friend I made it for last summer STILL talks about it. Neither one of us are vegetarians, but it’s THAT good. You won’t miss a thing.
My first experience with tomato pie was when someone brought one from the Produce Place in Nashville to a Christmas party. After my shock settled that someone would bring pizza to a Christmas dinner, I quickly changed my tune once I tasted it. It is perfect for ANY time of year, but especially when tomatoes are in season. Tomato pie is one of the best things I’ve ever tasted in my life. It’s 90% savory and 10% butt kicking when the hot sauce reaches your taste buds. That’s why I set out to develop my own. All THAT means you need to make this savory dish. Go on now and watch the video. If you opt for a homemade crust, follow my recipe for dough here and cut the ingredients in half (since you aren’t doing a top layer of dough). Let me know what you think!
What is your favorite fruit or vegetable of the summer? Is there anything you make year round?
