I really liked this! To keep the bottom of the crust from getting soggy brush egg whites on it and bake it alone first.


My family loved this one. I sliced my tomatoes and put them on a cooling rack over a sheet pan, salted them and let them sit for an hour to drain. Then I patted them down with dry paper towels. I served this at room temperature and everyone commented on how good this was. I had not one piece leftover.


Very good. I would recomend pre-baking the pie crust 10 minutes or so...helps if the tomatoes are a little to watery (I even salted and drained them). The flavor was good, my husband thought it needed more heat. While I was prepping it, I was thinking some canned green chili peppers would probably be a good addition (will add next time). As for peeling the tomato's, I have put them in a hot water bath in the past. Did some research, and found that turning them over an open flame (gas oven) for about 20 seconds total (don't "cook" the skin) was awesome. Very easy to peel.
