My favorite tomato pie recipe EVER! I prefer the parm version to one using cheddar. Absolutely the best when made with home-grown tomatoes and fresh basil. I have served to company and family, with rave reviews. MIne looks a little more browned on top and the cheese/mayo mixture melts down some; the one pictured looks almost like they haven't cooked it yet.

I've also seen a tomato pie with basically double these ingredients (using fresh basil tho), plus pepper to taste, and the topping a cup of shredded mozzarella and a cup of shredded cheddar mixed with a cup of hellman's mayo for the topping instead of parm. I also peeled the tomatoes first, so as not to get the shriveled skins as they cook. BUT, that's being kinda picky - overall, any tomato pie is yummy. There are even versions with bacon!
