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.

Excellent.

Cant say anything but good things about the Tomato Head. Interesting, varied menu. An 'artsy' vibe and atmosphere and helpful waitstaff. Very fresh pizzza. Cheese was excellent. The vast menu was fun to read. Cant wait to try more next time.!

My daughter is a Vegan and I am a carnivore. We both like to eat here. The pizza has the best cheese anywhere near here. Salads for every taste. A good roast beef sandwich for me and some nice vegan dishes for our daughter, they look and smell great and bring smiles to her face.

We like the larger seating area now that they took in the space next door. Same good food but now easier to get in.

Tomatoes head is a little out of the box on its food. I mean this in a good way. They use imagination and make it interesting. You won't be disappointed if you go there.

It's hard not to love Tomato Head. They have a really wide variety of ingredients to put on a pizza (great for veg/vegans). It can be pretty crowded (for a good reason) and a little slow, but if you give yourself plenty of time it's a very nice dining experience.

Everything taste FRESH! Interesting combinations of ingredients that always seem to fit well together. I have had a spinach/Andouille sausage pizza that rocks. I also had a vegetable quesadilla that is excellent. Locally-brewed beer on tap and good selection of wine. This is not low calorie stuff, so consider splitting an entre.

My family and I like to go to Market Square & eat, then head to the movies. Tomato Head is one of the better restaurants on Market Square, with a nice variety to chose from. The pizza is always good & the warm bacon salad a favorite of our family.

Fun, good food, good service. Took a group of teenagers there. Finicky eaters, everyone found something. Nice atmosphere on Market Square.
