Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix parmesan cheese, almond flour, oat fiber, egg, butter and salt. Press into a 9” (23 cm) pie plate, being sure to press the crust up the sides. When the crust is ready, bake for 15 minutes, then allow to cool.
  2. Arrange sliced tomatoes on the cooled crust. The slices should cover the crust and be about two slices deep. Arrange the onion on top.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise and cheese. Spread the mayonnaise mixture over the tomatoes and onions, and out to the edges of the crust to "seal" the toppings.
  4. Sprinkle dried oregano and dried basil over the top. Bake for about 30 minutes. The topping will be browned and bubbly when done. Let set for at least 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy warm or cold!

Tips!

* The oat fiber can be replaced with 2 tbls of coconut flour (for one pie).

For more flavor, sprinkle chopped, cooked bacon over the tomatoes before baking the pie.

    Surprisingly delicious! Enjoyed!

    A small suggestion: I've made the same tomato pie for 20 years, and always with lots of onions (today: 4 medium), cut to small pieces, and simmering for 15-20 minutes with a big chunk of butter on a pan. Not to get much brown, just to get transparent. And finally, I use thyme instead of oregano / basil. Above receipt with these changes is one of my favourite lowcarb dishes, and the crust is really excellent. And of course with cherry tomatoes, if you can afford the carbs :-)

    I, too, used lots of fresh thyme, from my garden. My choice of cheese is a triple cheddar cheese blend. Also, plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Superb! Kristie's recipes are the best.

    I prepared this pie today and it turned out delicious! I have to admit that I had to increase in a proportional way the amount of the mayo and cheese mix in order to be able to cover it completely! I also added some bacon squares, previously cooked, to the tomatoes before sealing.
    In summary, everyone loved it! It is so refreshing, it can be eaten hot or cold, and the crust tastes awesome!!!!!!
    Will definitely prepare again!

    I have started to vary this crust because we enjoy a variety of foods. For instance, the other day I wrapped it around organic sausages, and then pressed chopped olives and finely-chopped anchovies into the pastry. The result was a much more interesting pastry.

    In the morning I rolled out the remaining pastry and cut it into circles, and filled them with blue cheese and olives, not too much, sealed them, and baked them, for breakfast.

    When I next make keto pastry I will experiment with Indian spices.

    I am not sure! I know it will keep 3-5 days in the refrigerator though.

    Favorite keto recipe I've made so far!

    Made this today and surprised how delicious the crust is! I’ve made Paula Dean’s Tomato Pie recipe for years, but with traditional crust (NOT KETO), this taste every bit as good! **I used chopped green onion instead of purple, more subtle onion flavor and julienned fresh basil (1/4-1/2 C ) to mix in mayo/cheese spread, adds even more layers of fresh summer flavor.
