Tomato Pie with Bacon is wonderfully creamy and full of slices of ripe summer tomatoes, salty bacon and mozzarella and cheddar cheese all baked in a buttery pie crust.

When it comes to savory pies, you just can’t beat a tomato pie.

This is my standard Tomato Pie recipe, but this version with bacon is even more delicious. Isn’t everything better with bacon?

Tomato Pie is a classic southern recipe for summer. We love our summer tomatoes, whether it be a simple tomato sandwich with Duke’s mayonnaise, a BLT, or a tomato pie.

This Tomato Pie with Bacon is very similar to a BLT Sandwich. You have your tomato slices, your bacon, and lots of mayonnaise.

Tomato Pie can be eaten warm, at room temperature, or cold. It’s just a matter of personal preference. For a really good tomato pie, you want to use either vine-ripened home-grown tomatoes or ones that you have bought at a farmers market.  The tomatoes at the grocery store typically do not have enough flavor.

You’ll want to sprinkle the tomato slices with salt and let them sit on the counter a little while. This will bring some of the water out of the tomatoes. Blot them dry before adding them to the pie to prevent your pie from being soggy and liquidy.
