Best pizza in West Newton Square

There are a lot of pizza places in West Newton. None come close to Sweet Tomatoes. Thin crust, tasty toppings, and fresh ingredients. A slice is huge -- easily enough for lunch. If you sit down at one of the tables, note that the sun coming through the window is like a magnifying glass... read more

This is a local favorite eatery - you can find couples and families here most weekends. A lot of people rave about their pizza, I'm ok with it, but happen to prefer deep dish myself. Nice, fresh ingredients though and if you like thin crust, a good place to go.

The pizza is among my favorite in the area, but every time I visit they seem to be understaffed and unable to take additional orders until the previous order is fully completed leading to long lines and frustrating waits. They also always seem to run out of sandwich ingredients on a regular basis which makes it hard for the non-pizza... More

This is probably the best Pizza in Newton. Thin crust is perfectly done, and their creations -- Pesto Splash, are inventive and tasty. Pizza is not cheap though -- $38.50 for two large Pizzas with two toppings each. No bargain, so it had better be good. The one downside is the service at the counter. If I did not love... More

We had a wonderful experience at Sweet Tomatoes. We brought 5 kids and they all really enjoyed the thin crust pizza. The woman at the counter was really helpful and attentive and they had the pizza ready exactly when they promised on the phone. The pizza was great: thin crust, chunks of tomatoes: very delicious and manageable!

Sweet Tomatoes in West Newton or Needham is our preferred Pizza takeout stop. try the Pesto splash or Luxe Potato (Yukon Gold potatoes, fontina cheese & truffle oil). The West Newton manager suggested I add bacon to it and that was a terrific idea!

Love their thin crust pizza. I'd recommend reconfirming your call-in order before hanging up - they "forgot" my meat topping. However, they did offer me a salad to make up for it. Great customer service. Consistently good pizza!

The service here was slow and ho-hum. I ordered a Cesaer salad, meatball sandwich and a 14" pizza. I expected the meatball sandwich to come before the pizza since it was made from scratch but to my dismay after waiting 15 minutes both came at the same time. The pizza was thin crust and had chunks of raw tomato on... More

While visiting son and family in Newton, we ordered pizza from Sweet Tomato, collected them and brought them home. While not inexpensive- quite a bit more expensive that the national everywhere pizza establishments - they were excellent and well worth the price. Son and family had had them before and we got specialties everyone wanted – including a superb “white”... More
