What's so great about tomato pie?
Ahh it's that time of year where the farmer's market weather is warm and those ripe tomatoes bring back memories of southern summer tomato pies. For those that don't understand that it's not a pizza well...you'll have to just come and taste why. That's right! Once the judging takes place the pies are available for tasting. Or better yet why don't you just make one! Tomato Pie Contest Form.
