Pancetta and Tomato pie

Last week I got my Food Network Magazine, witch I love and on the cover is a photo of a tomato pie it looks delicious, I really like this magazine I have tried other very popular ones like gourmet and bon-appetite, what I don't like about them is that I'm reading a recipe or a article and in the middle of my reading an  ad for the all new a renovated Mercedes Benz with all wheel drive, leather interior and self parking technology!, pops out.  If I wanted to know about that I will most likely steal one of my husband's magazines., don't get me wrong most of the recipes are delicious too!.  I decided to stay with one and that one is the Food Net. one I like the tips from the cooks and chefs and that it has lots of recipes you can actually plan a whole dinner party out of one single magazine!
this is how the one on the magazine looks like.
Well I love tomatoes and I love meat so I added some extras to the recipe!

Pancetta and Tomato Pie

1 pie crust or make you own
5 heirloom tomatoes
4 tbsp chopped chives
1 small onion finely chopped
1 tbsp mayo
3 tbs olive oil
1 cup pancetta
1/2 cup fresh mozzarella

 this is the one I made! yum yum!!!

Pre-heat oven at 375 Dg. On a skillet add 1 tbsp of olive oil and saute the onions until translucent transfer to a plate and let them cool to the already heated skillet add the pancetta and cook until crispy and let cool over a paper towel to absorb all the extra fat, slice the tomatoes about half an inch thin, on a bowl add the mayo, onions, 3 tbsp chives and the pancetta mix well and spread over the prepare pie crust arrange the tomatoes slices on top with the mozzarella drizzle with the rest of olive oil and season with salt and pepper, cook in the oven for 45 min or until tomatoes look cooked then sprinkle with the rest of the chives and serve!
