A sweet grandparents.com friend mentioned she was planting her tomatoes and in discussing my love for home grown tomatoes, I mentioned tomato pie. I hope some of you enjoy the pie come July or so--my rating is--Delish! Here's the recipe plus a link to a song to enjoy until you can pick that 1st tomato, dear friend!

Prick unbaked crust generously with a fork.

Do you use green tomatoes or ripe ones. Sounds delicious...

I used ripe tomatoes--hadn't even thought about green! Sounds like a good idea--I like those too--there aren't too many tomatoes I don't like! I don't know if I ever added this--I'm vegetarian and I don't mind it not having meat but so many people seem to like to add pepperoni to this--I haven't tasted it--but to them it's wonderfull so I want to pass that along.

Sounds delicious. Will certainly give it a try. I'm assuming the tomatoes are ripe???
