Looked for some lunch in downtown Knoxville and the Tomato Head appealed with its wide range of unusual pizza and sandwich choices. The place is located right on market square and has both indoor and outdoor seating. Decor is fairly plain and modern. This place...More

This was the first successful new business in Knoxville's Market Square, and led the way for dozens more. Enjoy their pizzas, beer, and wonderful and creative sandwiches. Dinning inside or out.

A great place right on market square. Good for Pizza, pasta or salads. Many options for Vegan or Vegetarian diners. Service was great, friendly and prompt. They had a bakery also but we were too full to try it.

I was looking for a place that had creative vegetarian food, and I'm glad I ended up here. They have a wide range of pizzas and other great menu items, and the service was very helpful and friendly as well.

My favorite is the Kepler Melt, the ingredient combination sounds strange, but it is oh so good. The fresh bread and tahini are another favorite.

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.
