What is a Tomato Pie?

A quick drive down I-95 separates Trenton and Philadelphia, but their respective tomato pies are what really set them apart. The Trenton Tomato Pie features an extra-crispy thin crust and a layer of crushed tomatoes that sits atop the cheese. Philadelphia’s tomato pie, meanwhile, has a thick crust with only a touch of cheese. Don’t get lost in the sauce – both tomato pie styles are fantastic and equally deserving of your belly room.

FAQ

Q: What is the difference between Philly Tomato Pie and Trenton Tomato Pie?

A: Philly Tomato Pies and Trenton Tomato Pies are two very different styles of pizza. Philly Tomato Pies are square with a soft crust that is topped with lots of pureed tomatoes and only a sprinkling of Parmesan or Romano cheese. Meanwhile, Trenton Tomato Pies are round with a more generous helping of mozzarella and a crispy crust.

Q: Who invented the Trenton Tomato Pie?

A: The Trenton Tomato Pie was first served by Joe’s Tomato Pie in 1910. Then, in 1912, Joe’s employee Giuseppe Papa opened up his own shop and named it Papa’s Tomato Pies. Joe’s has since shuttered its doors, but Papa’s stands today as a legendary New Jersey pizzeria.

Q: Where were Philly Tomato Pies first served?

A: Iannelli’s was among the first Philadelphia bakeries to offer the Philly Tomato Pie way back in 1910. Other legendary bakeries such as Sarcone’s (1918) and pizzerias like Tacconelli’s (circa 1920) helped make Philly Tomato Pies famous throughout the area.
