Italian Plum Tomato Prosciutto Cheesy Pie





This is been a great year for our garden here in Florida, I can't get enough recipes for all these plum tomatoes, I couldn't wait to share this light but perfect brunch, or dinner with everyone, it's a family favorite for years! Can you tell how proud I am of these babies, I think it's my third picture, I can tell you one thing, I have never had luck growing my own produce, animals always eat them!  So this is the only reason for my bragging rights this year, please forgive me, I do feel guilty not sharing!

deep dish pie crust homemade or store bought  ( prick holes in the bottom and bake for 9 minutes @375 degree oven)
6 slices prosciutto chopped in pieces (you can use ham or bacon if you choose)
2 cloves of minced garlic
3 medium plum (Roma) tomatoes, seeded, chopped
