Deep Summer Tomato Pie

In deep summer, when you can get the best tomatoes, showcase those beauties in a special pie. You will need fresh basil and a few tricks for success: you must pre-bake the bottom crust; the longer you can drain the tomatoes the better; and do not assemble the pie until just before you put it in the oven. Any cheese is good here, and now is the time to splurge on a favorite fancy one.
