Tomato pie is a summertime favorite but the carbs in the pie crust can add up. I have developed this recipe to use 1/2 of a pie crust to cut the carbs in half. This low carb tomato pie tastes just as good as the original!
How to make low carb Tomato Pie:
Using an 8″ pan, fit 1/2 of a refrigerated prepared pie crust into the pan.
Prebake the crust
Drain the tomatoes well
Then add the tomatoes, green onions and basil to the crust
Mix up the cheeses and mayo and spread over tomatoes
Bake tomato pie until cheese is golden and bubbly
