Tomato Pie with Spring Garlic:
1 pie crust
2 medium tomatoes
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese (or to taste)
2 small spring garlic heads and small part of stem chopped
Balsamic vinegar or fancy vinegar(tiny drizzle)
Salt(to taste sprinkled on top)
Preheat oven to 375.
I like to bake on a pizza baking stone, so I put that in my oven while it’s preheating.
***Here is what spring garlic looks like. It looks like a big green onion. It is a little more fibrous/woody in texture, but has an amazing muted garlic flavor!!! I think this may be my new favorite ingredient!!!
Roll out dough between two pieces of parchment paper. Make it nice and thin.
Put a little mozzarella on the bottom center, then begin layering pieces of tomato with a few pieces of garlic and a little sprinkle of cheese. Make sure you keep at least a 2″ border because you’ll be folding the edges up.
Once you have all your pie ingredients how you like them, spindle it with salt and give it a light drizzle of vinegar.
To close up the pie, fold up two sections of the crust and then pinch together. Do this all the way around the pie:-)
I then put it in the oven and baked for 25 minutes.
Once it’s done you can hear the insides bubbling and the crust is nice and golden brown.
***let it set for about 10-15 minutes or else you’ll burn your mouth;-)
Other variations include adding red pepper flakes, oregano, whatever you feel like. I used fancy vinegar (orange lime balsamic vinegar) this time.
This is a great way to try something different with tomatoes:-)
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3
