I grew up in New Haven, which claims the first pizza restaurant in the USA, and I'm picky about pizza. Sweet Tomatoes lacks the 1930s coal and wood ovens of the New Haven places, but the crust is thin and tasty and the toppings are fresh and first-rate.

I have given this place so many tries to make a pizza that does not have a soggy crust. I have given up. We will not return. They must use frozen ingredients that end up thawing on the dough as it bakes. Even when I have ordered a plain cheese, with only garlic. The pizza had WAY too much sauce... More

Very good pizza. The crust is thin, and it tastes of garlic and olive oil. The sauce is chunky and delicious, but you can also order smooth sauce ( which is recommended if you are trying to feed kids).

We frequent Sweet Tomatoes. My favorites are The BBQ chicken pizza. It's quite tasty. I really enjoy the buffalo chicken pizza and pesto splash too. They are quite delightful.

Sweet Tomatoes is one of the best pizzas in Boston. If taste matter to you then this is a must try. ST rules the suburbs and will stand up to any pizza snob anywhere.

We just did take-out of their pizzas and they were delicious.....though they totally messed up the choices for the pizza toppings which wasn't discovered until we got home. But the pizza was good anyway.
