This crustless tomato pie has been one of my family’s favorites for years. It is very delightful and pretty easy to whip up fast. The perfect pizza to serve for brunch, lunch, or dinner. With an Italian flair from the fresh herbs and mozzarella cheese that brings everything together! This easy crustless tomato pie recipe is a must-try!
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 tbsp butter
- 4 tomatoes, sliced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 c. onion, chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
- 2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded, plus extra for sprinkling over top
- 6-7 leaves of basil, chopped
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1-2 tsp salt
Step 1: On plates, lay the sliced tomatoes and lightly sprinkle with salt. Allow them to sit for at least 10 to 20 minutes up to 30 minutes.
Step 2: In a small skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add the onion and garlic to the skillet and cook for about 8 minutes, stirring often, until the onions have softened. To a medium-sized bowl, transfer the onion/garlic mixture. Then, add the cheese, eggs, herbs, and pepper. Mix well.
Step 3: Drain the water from the plates with the tomatoes. Gently blot the tomatoes using a paper towel to soak up any excess moisture.
Step 4: On a greased pie pan, arrange the tomatoes in a single layer and top with around 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture. Repeat the layers with the rest of the tomato slices and cheese mixture, ending with a layer of tomatoes. Sprinkle the final layer with mozzarella cheese.
Step 5: Place in the oven and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes at 375 degrees or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove from the oven when done and let the pie sit for about 5 to 7 minutes.
Step 6: Serve and enjoy!
