Would the REAL Tomato Pie Please Stand Up?

**Note: Edited basil amount to 3T 11/23/15

I have already posted Gayla’s Tomato Pie recipe here. However, it just wasn’t right. It didn’t taste like hers. The first time I had this it was amazing. So being the sweet friend that she is she volunteered to come over and help me make sure I’m doing it just like her. Don’t you wish your friends were as cool as mine? Did I mention she’s also the one we can thank for the cauliflower recipe that I love so much?!?

I think the only difference we discovered in the tomato pie I had made previously and the one Gayla helped me with was the amount of basil, it seems to be what makes it taste so wonderful. So here we go, I even made her pause so I could take pictures. (I apologize for any poor picture quality, my good camera’s battery was dead).

 

GAYLA’S REAL TOMATO PIE
