Thaw pie shell. Beginning with tomato slices, layer tomatoes, cheese, basil, and some pepper. Finish pie with mostly tomatoes on top with sprinkling of cheese. Drizzle very lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper on top layer to taste.
Bake in 400 degree oven 20-25 minutes, until edges of pie crust are very brown. Serve hot or at room temperature. Makes a great appetizer or side dish.
