Tomato Pie

Recipe Details:

Tomato Pie??? It was a recipe I discovered when making my Greek feast. It is simple and delicious. Good either warm or cold, this could be a main course by itself. Served with a salad it is a perfect brunch meal. What I love the most is that you can taste all the levels of flavor. For this recipe I used a gluten-free pie crust and non-dairy cheddar for my substitutions. Follow our links at the bottom of the page to learn more about these products.
