Tomato Pie Pizza Joint Los Angeles
« on: March 15, 2012, 05:35:13 PM »
Anyone go to Tomato Pie Pizza Joint in Los Angeles?  I went there today.  I saw this place on the internet a few months ago and by chance ran into it while out today.  I was walking with my niece in the trending Melrose section of Hollywood today and saw this joint.  Had to try it since I saw it on the net a few months ago and was a place I intended to try out eventually.  

I liked the pizza, it was good.  What was not good was the price.  $3 for a slice.  Doesn't sound bad to you?  The slice is half the size as a slice at Sbarro or King of NY Pizza or any other NY style place.   I understand that the cost of business is a lot but for $3 could they give a little more real estate on the slice if you get my meaning?  

The slice was nice and thin, tasty sauce and cheese.  The rim had that spiderweb effect when you tear it in half or bite it in half and look at it.

Here it is -

I had several slices there for lunch today.  I'll let you form your own opinions from the photos.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

I had a couple of slices at Tomato Pie Pizza Joint today.  The place was in full swing cranking out a lot pizzas, mostly for delivery orders.  It's a fun place to photograph.

Watching their cooks toss the pies is pretty fun. Their dough has amazing elasticity.

I used to go to Tomato Pie all the time, but have had trouble getting over there since Desano opened. I love Desano (even though its a totally different type of pie).
