Fresh Tomato Ricotta Pie  is my recipe of the day.  I had a pile of garden tomatoes stacking  up,  a pre-baked crust in the freezer  and a little time on my hands.

Plus it crossed my mind that I had not yet posted a tomato  pie. Even though I love them. I think the layering  of tomatoes is beautiful.

Any time I can take a few  heirloom tomatoes and transform them  into  something pretty, I am  pleased. It doesn’t hurt that tomatoes are one  of my  favorite foods, appearing in nearly everything I like   to eat. How about yoou?

Tomato pie  is generally a Southern  thing,  although they  don’t corner the market. Even pizza  margherita are considered tomato pies.

And there are a few different ways to do a tomato pie, most of  which are good. So don’t be afraid to try them all!

Oh My  Ricotta!

This one comes packing a bit of ricotta cheese (YUM!) which besides being  very delicious also serves as a cushion  for  juicy tomatoes. As you can see in the picture,  I didn’t have issues with  cutting  open the pie and  finding a lake inside.

I did discover the crust I meant to use up had some  cracks  when I pulled it  out of the  freezer but whatever. I am  not dumping  a crust just over that.

Orphaned Ingredients

I  know I had bought it sometime earlier this year  to make a quick dessert pie but didn’t get to it and then forgot.

It’s like the pantry curse:  open the cabinet to see the weird can of something. And no one  recalls what it  was for. Don’t you hate  that?

But anyway, the crust is cleared out, the  pie was delish and  you can  use any crust you want so  long as you parbake it first. Enjoy.
