1. We preferred cutting the tomatoes in chunks rather than thin slices.
2. Put tomatoes through salad spinner to remove excess water.
3. Put some of the cheese on the bottom crust before adding the tomatoes. It helps to seal the crust.
4. The pie does well in the frig. Reheat slices in toaster oven at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Sadly, the general consensus has been that this won't freeze well. So enjoy it now.
5. I used a soy mayonnaise substitute and cut down on the quantity, so you can play around with that if you don't want to use a full 1/3 cup of mayo. I also add some grainy mustard to that mix.
6. Use whatever fresh herbs you got around.

The only major difference I saw was she used baking powder to lighten to dough and a bit of lemon juice in the mayo.
