Garlic Basil Tomato Pie

Here's a quick and easy recipe that brings fresh Italian flavors to a traditional savory American pie. Try it out on the whole family!


  • 8 ounces can crescent rolls
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces provolone cheese, thinly sliced
  • 8 Italian plum tomatoes, thinly sliced & seeded
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese, grated
  • freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Lightly spray a 10" pie plate or tart pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Separate crescent roll dough into 4 rectangles. Place rectangles in spray-coated pan.
  4. Press evenly over bottom and up sides of pan; firmly press edges and perforations to seal. Prick dough with a fork.
  5. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine oil, basil, and garlic. Cook over low heat just until heated, stirring occasionally. Cover to keep warm.
  7. Arrange half of the provolone cheese slices over partially baked crust; top with half the tomatoes.
  8. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan or Romano cheese.
  9. Repeat layers with remaining provolone cheese, tomatoes, and Parmesan cheese.
  10. Spoon basil mixture over pie; sprinkle with pepper.
  11. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is deep golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes.
  12. To serve, cut into wedges. Serve immediately.

How odd that I click on a recipe that's called Cozy Crescent Pie and I get Garlic Basil Tomato Pie. This sort of thing happens often with this site. Very annoying.
