Even at 2:30 this place was busy. We realized the wait was worth it. The tomato soup is delicious, and the cheddar head sandwich was great-not to mention the small pours of beers to sample was fun.

I am NOT a fan of pizza. Therefore, I always suggested somewhere else when my husband wanted to try Tomato Head. Boy was I missing out. The selection of pizzas and salads is endless! The salad ingredients were all very fresh. The salad dressings are...More

Waited about 45 minutes for a table here on a busy weekend night. Service was excellent. Tomato soup was to die for. The highlight was the fruit cobbler dessert.

Great options with fresh made bread. The Kelpner Melt is a must! Another favorite is the Macaroni and Cheese Pizza.

Great and different food. Really a great place for a super meal on the Mall in downtown Knoxville. Parking in the parking garage is a short walk. You will be glad you went there.

The venue was hip, modern and family friendly. Service was pleasant and attentive. The Lamb & Sun-dried Tomato ($13.95 for small) as well as Ham & Pineapple ($9.25 for small) pizzas were made with high quality ingredients and baked to perfection. Good crust and above...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.
