If you think you know pizza, forget about it! Tomato Head has pizza done in so many combinations its a smorgasborg! Enjoy for lunch or dinner with indoor or outdoor dining Market Square.

Great casual atmosphere with outdoor patio. Delicious Italian food with vegetarian options. Friendly service, but a little slow on busy Saturday night.

I had a 9 inch pizza and it was alright. Food is not cheap, but service is excellent. I didn't have the time to dine-in, but I was able to order my pizza and eat it at the community table inside the restaurant.

2 nine inch for 3 people was a comfortable meal. Different as in unusual ingredients made for a good experience. Had an experienced waiter with a trainee. Both were good.

This place is just as good as I remember. Are here along time ago and came today with my sisters. Food was great it's just way too expensive. Emilio was our server and he was very attentive. Way way too expensive

We believe less processed food tastes better. Not only does it taste better, it's much healthier too. You'll notice this difference in our house made dressings and handcrafted pizzas, as well as in our colorful salads and sandwiches. Fresh produce from East Tennessee farmers like Hines Valley Farm, Mountain Meadows Farm and Colvin Family Farm is featured in our daily specials.

Well known for our vegan and vegetarian dishes, our menu has plenty for the carnivore. All of our proteins are nitrate/nitrite free, all natural and antibiotic free. Our house made lamb sausage is cooked in small batches to ensure freshness.

Our sister bakery, Flour Head Bakery, prepares all of the Tomato Head's desserts and breads (including gluten free!) Each morning. By using unbleached and unbromated King Arthur Flour, we create healthier and better tasting pizza dough and sandwich breads.

We also can easily accommodate your dietary needs. Whether it's a nut allergy, a preference for vegan fare or a gluten sensitivity, our staff will craft a dish to suit your tastes.
