Tomato Pie Pizza recently opened at 11661 Preston Road, on the southwest corner of Preston and Forest, just down the sidewalk from Panera Bread. Owner Ryan Noles relocated, along with a few family members, from the Midwest to test his St. Louis-style family-owned joint in the metroplex. The thin crust pizza with housemade sauce starts at just $8 (10" cheese mini) and goes up to $18.95 for a 16" specialty.
The menu also includes salads, pastas and sandwiches (roast beef with au-jus, meatball, Italian combo, and ham or salami, all for $6.95).
Right now Tomato Pie is a (free) delivery and take-out spot. The space is small and they'll have a few bistro tables soon, but for now, they don't have any tables or chairs.
The lunch specials are pretty decent at $8.95 and include five different options, like a 10" 1-topping pizza and side salad, a full-sized salad and cheese garlic bread, toasted ravioli and a side salad, pasta and salad, or sandwich and salad.
The salads look inspiring for those with an eye toward thong-bikini season. They make their house dressing from scratch.
The staff is really nice and seems eager to please and to find their place in this particularly packed area.
