In a nice part of town, this was a find. The place is spotless, our waiter (Jeff) was fabulous and the food was great. It was late in the evening, so we ate light -- baked tofu salad and a vegetarian sandwich. Both were wonderful....More

This place gets busy, but they appear to move parties in quickly. We all got different slices of pizza. Crust was light and flavorful. Toppings were fresh. Prices were very good. We got a monkey bread appetizer for the baby in our group—and it was...More

It is hard to find gluten-free pizza that is not crunchy and hard, which is not what you want in a pizza. Tomato Head's is soft and buttery, so tasty! I love the salmon pizza with pesto and my husband prefers the regular crust with...More

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.
