Author Claudia Rinaldi | Gourmet Project


  • 9-10 inches large rolled out pie crust of your choice
  • 18-20 cherry tomatoes enough to fill the pan
  • 1 medium shallot
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 handful basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown cane sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch chili


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).

  2. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Heat the olive oil in a pan or skillet and golden brown the shallot. Add sugar and stir. Immediately add tomatoes, salt and chili and cook for about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir enough to coat them with the syrup. Add the balsamic vinegar, stir and cook for a minute.
  4. Pour the tomatoes and their liquids in the cake pan. Add the basil, coarsely chopped. Cover with the pie crust and use your fingers to fit it through the sides of the pan, wrapping up the tomatoes.
  5. Bake in the oven 25-30 minutes, until the crust turns golden brown. Flip the pie, after losing the edges with the help of a spatula.
  6. Serve hot or cold accompanied by fresh mozzarella or other delicate flavor cheese.
