Tomato Pie Pizza Joint Restaurant Review

: Many try, but few succeed in getting New York pizza right in Southern California. Former New Yorker Garrett Policastro is one who does, offering not only some of the best pies on the Eastside, but also citywide. Partly, it’s the crust --- made with high-protein flour and filtered water --- creating a thin New York-style pie offset with quality Wisconsin mozzarella and a pleasingly sweet, tangy tomato sauce. Locals are devoted to the signature pies, many of which include the infamous "Grandma" sauce (a traditional tomato-base recipe). More exotic options include "Carnitas Way" (braised pork with red pepper and onions on a chipotle gravy foundation). Don’t be afraid to explore other Italian specialties like the stromboli, calzones, subs, salads and pastas, as well as the homemade meatballs. For dessert, one can expect cannoli and tiramisu. You’ll only find three tables inside, but a parking lot patio offers additional seating, if minimal atmosphere.
