Complementary Ingredients Create a Delicious Dish

Fresh tomatoes make all the difference in this delightful dish!

With mouthwatering ingredients like flaky pie crust, plump tomatoes, a three-cheese blend, sweet onions, and fresh herbs, this decadent recipe is guaranteed to please your taste buds. For extra-impressive flavor and a dish with even more nutrients, consider using fresh, locally-grown tomatoes in this recipe! Tomatoes are the star of this classic southern dish, so why wouldn’t you want the best of the best?

This pie gets even better, though, because pairing juicy tomatoes with mozzarella is always a good time. We go one step further and add in feta and Parmesan cheese, creating a super-satisfying trio. The sweetness of the onion complements the tart tomatoes and creamy cheese, while basil and thyme add a hint of earthiness. It truly doesn’t get any better than this!
