How to make Tomato and Vidalia Onion Pie
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 3: In a bowl, place the mayonnaise, grated Parmesan, and grated cheddar or mozzarella cheese. Mix well until combined and set aside.
Step 4: In the pie crust, layer the tomato and Vidalia Onion slices in alternating layers. Then, sprinkle with pepper and drizzle with olive oil. On top of the vegetables, sprinkle the chopped basil and spread the cheese/mayo mix. Lastly, sprinkle with more basil.
Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 6: Remove from the oven when done. Slice the pie and serve. Enjoy!
