Rustic Cocktail Tomato and Cheese Pie


  • 1 pound store bought pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, pluse extra to drizzle on top
  • 12-16 Backyard Farms Cocktail Tomatoes, cut into slices
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup grated Swiss or cheddar cheese


Preheat the oven to 425°F.

On a sheet of lightly oiled parchment paper, pat or roll the dough out into a 12- or 13-inch round. Place on a baking sheet.

Mix the mustard and 1 teaspoon olive oil and brush over the surface of the dough. Overlap the tomato slices on the dough to within 1-inch of the sides. Sprinkle the sugar evenly over the tomatoes. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the tomatoes.

Fold the edges of the dough over the tomatoes, leaving the center open.

Bake 10 minutes, then lower the heat to 375°F and continue baking until the dough is nicely browned, about 15 minutes.

Cool on a rack and cut into wedges. Serve warm.
