Chef Montgomery’s Tomato Pie Named Bama’s Best Tomato Dish

Whether served hot or cold, Chef Montgomery Preston Williams’ Tomato Pie is hard to beat. In fact, it was named the best tomato dish in Bama.

“I did it on and off for a few years,” said Williams, of FDL Gourmet To Go. “It’s a tomato pie that FDL really focused on perfecting. COVID happened, and we really tried to take a traditional tomato pie and make it the best it could be.”

So what is a tomato pie?

The judges taste chef Preston Williams' tomato pie at the Montgomery Curb Market.

“Our version is sliced ​​tomatoes that we salt to extract some of the moisture, then layer them with a mixture of cheese and mayonnaise, and some seasonings,” Williams said. “We make about four layers with tomatoes. Top with some cheese in a pie crust.”

Bake it at 400 degrees for 40 minutes, mostly for the crust, Williams said.
