I am hanging onto heirloom tomatoes as long as I can. They will be gone so quickly, which makes me rather sad. While I love to eat them raw, I adore making something fun out of them. In this case, the recipe involved a pie crust. I am sure I have written of my pure love of a pie crust. I could go on and on about it. This time I made a savory tomato pie, that comes together in a matter of minutes. Tomato Pie with Zucchini, Yogurt and Herbs is simple to make. While you are blind baking the pie crust, prep all your other ingredients. You will even have time to stand around and stare at the oven timer willing it to move faster. Once the pie crust is done, layer on all the ingredients and bake again. It is really that simple.

We enjoyed this tomato pie for dinner with a salad. The next day I happily ate it for lunch. I love when my husband forgets his lunch, and I get to it eat. Is that mean? I did make it after all, and quality control and tasting is part of this job. A part I very much like. I would happily serve this pie for dinner or brunch. It could go either way. The pie crust makes it feel so special, but the calories will not ruin your day. Ok if you eat the entire pie in one sitting, you will need to run a marathon to use all the calories. If you stick to the correct portion size, you can merrily go about your day. Enjoy the last of summer’s beautiful bounty and make a Tomato Pie for your family. They are going to love it.

  1. Our tomatoes have gone crazy in the last week and this looks like a great dish to use them in. Thanks for posting this.
  2. I'm with you, I love the heirlooms and try to savor them in the short time they are here! this sounds VERY good!
  3. Oh my gosh this looks so good!
  4. First off, I LOVE tomato pie! I can never have enough of it and I love your lighter version (mine is no where near healthy, haha.) Secondly, jealous of your tomatoes! I have not had many nice ones so far :(

      Hi Kacey, I was glad to get good tomatoes while I could. They are already gone here in Georgia. I would make this again in a heartbeat, if I could get more heirlooms.
  5. This recipe reminds me that I need to go out and buy heirloom tomatoes ASAP. I love the idea of the savory pie with the yogurt. Everything here looks amazing. Pinning for later!
  6. Such a pretty dish! This would be a great light dinner, thanks for the recipe!
  7. I've never tried anything like this before but it looks like something I'd love! Great recipe!!
  8. This looks simple and delicious! Great way to use up those end of summer tomatoes (though I'm hoping I still have at least a month of those here!)
