Southern Tomato Pie… Mmmmmmmmmmm.

Ever tried it? If not, you are really missing out.

Imagine fresh ripe summer tomatoes, flaky pie crust, fresh herbs, a little mayonnaise for tang, and a whole lot of melted Borden® Cheese! That is the epitome of a good tomato pie.

Heavenly Cheesy Southern Tomato Slab Pie Recipe


Over the years, I’ve made tomato pie many different ways. Some with mozzarella slabs in a pie pan, some with puff pastry crusts, some with grape tomatoes in a tart pie. Yet my personal favorite is a Southern Tomato Slab Pie.

A large rectangular pie with a higher crust-to-filling ratio than classic round pies.

Not only do you get more buttery crust in each bite, a Southern Tomato Slab Pie:

  • Bakes faster than pies with more filling
  • Cools faster for impatient pie eaters
  • Feeds a crowd for summer parties and entertaining
  • Can be served as a hand-held snack!

Right next to ripe summer tomatoes, the most important ingredient for a perfect Southern Tomato Slab Pie is the cheese!

I used two types of fresh Borden® Cheese Shreds in the filling. Sharp cheddar cheese is mixed with mayonnaise, scallions, and garlic to creating a silky molten layer. Then Borden® Four Cheese Mexican Shreds is sprinkled over the top to melt and seal in all the goodness.

    Such a great idea for a savory slab pie!

    Summer is my absolute favorite time of the year, for four reasons: (1) Summer break (I’m an educator); (2) warm weather (though I live in Tennessee so I guess that’s all relative); (3) peaches; and (4) TOMATOES. Tomato pie is one of my favorites but I have never thought of making it into a slab pie. I will have to give this a whirl!

    This recipe sounds wonderful – true blue comfort food. But I can’t imagine the calorie content.

    I love Tomato pie….It says ‘Summer Time’. However, no matter how long I drain the tomatoes, my pie is soggy. I am wondering if anyone has tried drying out the tomatoes in low temp oven before constructing the pie.

      Hi Karlya! If you’ve drained the tomatoes and the crust is still getting soggy, it may be an oven issue. Did you bake the pie on the lowest oven rack? Sometimes that helps correct soggy pie crusts.

    This Southern Tomato Slab Pie looks sooo delicious.  Haven’t made it yet, but sure to get going on it soon!!! I love your easy directions and beautiful pictures too.  Mouth- watering images that practically “melt in my mouth”:) I like Borden shredded Cheese best to…it does melt better in my opinion. I like that Borden also offers a Whole Milk  Mozzarella Shredded Cheese for my Italian Recipes.  Nothing but he best ingredients will do!

    I made this tonight and it was really good. Next time I make it, I’ll use only one stick of butter because it was too rich for my tummy. Then again, I don’t really like pastry because of the butteriness (I’m weird that way.) It would be delicious with an olive oil, balsamic base and mozzarella/Parmesan cheese too! Thank you for the recipe!
