We ordered the pizza for a party and they ordered all vegetarian pizzas. I normally have meat on my pizza but this changed my view on how great pizza can be with just vegetables. It is a great place for pizza especially if you are downtown.

I LOVE Tomato Head. They have a salmon and pesto pizza that is amazing (don't knock it until you try it :-) ). I've seen live music, hung out with friends, and enjoyed brunch with my family here over the years. The menu includes a variety of sandwiches, veggies, pizza, and more, most of which you won't find in other... More

Only had a salad. It seemed like there wasn't a lot of lettuce in it. Dressing was so so. Service was ok. Great area for a restaurant.

We are in Knoxville to try a new restaurant this evening, The Lonesome Dove. That review will be tomorrow. I booked the Crown Plaza Hotel near the restaurant and also near Market Square, the location of Tomato Head, a highly rated TA restaurant which we tried for lunch today. We arrived around 11:50, walked into the exit and were directed... More

Pizza and salads are pretty good and the quality is high but it also overpriced considering the size of the plates. The best location is the one at market square.

This is definitely one of our favorite places to eat downtown. This visit was no exception. Service was fast and friendly and food was fresh and flavorful. If you can't decide where to eat downtown, this is always a hit with our family.

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.
