A unique food that is popular in Central New York, Tomato Pie is a pizza-like food that
is common in Italian-American families. It is usually served at room temperature, not
hot. This "tomato pie" is not made with fresh tomatoes and the name "pie" most likely
derives from the term pizza pie. The basic recipe features pizza dough covered with a
thick tomato sauce, and then sprinkled with grated romano cheese. Every bakery and
pizzeria has its own variation on this basic recipe.
