This savoury pie is delicious, we used red, yellow and green heirloom tomatoes which came from our local farm, and the black olive crust added the extra flavor! Very easy to prepare, basil, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese are always successful combination. This is definitely a new keeper for us to make more often.
