Great Things Happen When You Put Pizza Fixin's Inside a Pie Crust

August 20, 2015

Inspired by conversations on the Food52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun.

This week, KatieQ gives "pizza pie" a whole new meaning.

Looking for something to do with your latest load of tomatoes? Look no further than this tomato pie from KatieQ: It's garlicky, cheesy, and packed full of thick-sliced fresh tomatoes. And if you have a spare pie crust tucked into your freezer (or a pre-made one from the store), it's an even easier dinner than throwing together homemade pizza.

Salt and tomatoes are best friends!! :-)

Whoa, that looks like a LOT of salt.

it helps draw out some of the water in the tomatoes, so that the pie crust doesn't get soggy! but i'm sure you could leave some of it out (or rinse the tomatoes after salting) if you prefer.
