I varied the traditional recipe of using mayonnaise and substituted lemon garlic mayonaise. Use store bought mayonnaise and add a little garlic if you do not want to make mayonnaise.. Enjoy!

MultiStu66: OMG!  This is summer comfort....  You nailed it - Red, yellow or whatever type of tomato - Delish.  So many are unfamiliar with this - I am only in my third year of this (using fresh garden tomatoes,) but this is wonderful and surprising.  Thank you so much.

mytreasuredcreations: I had heard of this pie from a friend. I bought a big box of red tomatoes and decided to make a vegan version of it. it was a success! !! there was nothing left. I used corn tortillas for the pie crust. sliced and piled the tomatoes like you did. smothered them with basil like you did. Then I made a tofu cream with nutritional yeast and garlic and poured over it all. Baked for 50 minutes on 350. It was amazing! !!! :)

Charlotte Z.: I had heard of tomato pie in southern novels but didn't know what it was until I was on vacation with my daughters on Edisto Island in South Carolina. A well-known local farm that supplied many of the desserts to local restaurants had, among their sweet offerings at their roadside stand, Tomato Pie. We had one for lunch that afternoon and couldn't get back to that stand fast enough for another!! Then I had to match their list of ingredients against the several recipes on line to come up with one that tasted like the very first one we'd had and loved so much. Your's is almost exactly the same except for the aoli which sounds delicious. My husband likes a few sprinkles of hot sauce added to the cheese mixture. Now that our tomatoes are coming in, we will make one every week. It is a super easy way to make those wonderful home grown tomatoes and basil into dinner and a couple of lunches.
