  • Place ½ of the sliced tomatoes in bottom of crust, overlapping each slice. Top tomatoes with ½ of the corn, 1 tablespoon of basil, 1 tablespoon of chives, 1/4 teaspon black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Repeat the layer starting with tomatoes. Top this layer off with 1 cup of shredded cheese.
  • In a small mixing bowl, blend together mayonnaise and lemon juice. Pour mayonnaise mixture on top of cheese and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of mayonnaise.
  • Top with remaining 12" round dough. Crimp edges together. Cut 4 to 6 slits in top crust to allow steam to vent.
  • Bake in middle of oven 30-35 minutes or until crust is golden in color. Cool on a rack and serve warm or at room temperature.
  • TIP: "Cut In": To combine dry ingredients with shortening, butter or margarine by "cutting" the dry ingredients in with a pastry blender or two knives. As the dry ingredients are cut into the fat ingredients they begin to form clumps
