Tomato Pie with Spring Garlic:

20140528-135245-49965222.jpg

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:-)

Hi! My name is Dominique and I'm lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home. I'm actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job. I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things...whether it's figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)

    • I hope you like it! A friend gave me a recipe for a tomato pie a few years ago and I’ve loved making different versions of it! It’s a great way to use tomatoes beside my other favorite way…BLT’s:-)
