Description: 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.

On a beautiful day, get your order in and grab an outside table! Tomato Head makes an outstanding pizza, with crust well worth eating and delicious toppings. As my husband completed our order, I grabbed the table tent and managed to snag an outside table to linger over lunch, watch the people passing, and enjoy a perfect fall day. A tip.... note that there are also tables located throughout the square. If you can't get one in the outside dining area, I'd get lunch "to go" and enjoy it on one of those if the weather permits. Good food in a delightful setting!

This popular restaurant has two locations in Knoxville and both are good. Plain settings but good service and very good sandwiches, salads, pizza and misc. Highly recommended.

Mu boyfriend and I ate here this past weekend thanks to tripadvisors rating. I will tell you this, they were not kidding when they rated the food great! I had a veggie pizza and it tasted wonderful! They make their own dough and buy from the local farmers market. The placement of the tables makes the area cramped but they also have an outdoor seating option. Definitely go check it out!

Great little spot on Market Square, this restaurant is clearly very popular and always bustling. Superb selection for lunch with unusual sandwiches all prepared fresh!
