Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Place sliced tomatoes on a paper towel, sprinkle lightly with salt, cover with another paper towel, and set aside. This releases water from the tomatoes.
  2. Line pie plate with pie crust, pierce with a fork and bake in a pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes, until it is set but not brown. Remove and reduce oven heat to 375º
  3. In a skillet, fry bacon until crispy. Reserve the drippings. Crumble or chop the bacon and set aside. Sauté chopped onion in the reserved dripping, drain, and set aside.
  4. In a bowl, combine the cup of mayonnaise and 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese.
Assembly:
  1. Sprinkle some cheese in the bottom of the pie crust. Layer about 1/2 of the sliced tomato, 1/2 the crumbled bacon, 1/2 the sautééd onion, and more cheese. Sprinkle a little basil on top and garlic (optional) ***This does not need salt or pepper*** Repeat the layers then spread the mayo and cheese mixture on top.
Bake
  1. Bake at 375º for 25-30 minutes. The top will be brown and bubbly. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
