TOMĀTO TOMÄTO opened in Stamford in early April. We stopped by a week after their grand opening, and the place was packed with folks enjoying pizza pies and beer.
On the menu are several starters like calamari, burrata, and meatballs, salads, and entrees. The most important items on the menu are their signature pizzas and brew. A great combo when watching the game on the big screen televisions by the bar.

They cook their pies two ways: Traditional (with a layer of melted mozzarella cheese – what you’d get at a regular pizzeria) or Old World Style (with slices of mozzarella). A fan of the Old World, we tried two pies cooked in this style. The first was the Fair View made with grilled shrimp, pancetta, arugula, topped with shaved Parmesan and a balsamic reduction. Not a bad mix. The shrimp was an interesting addition to the pie, though it needed some seasoning. The crust – chewy, with a bit of crunch, and the perfect thickness.
The other pie we tried was the Stamford, made with grilled chicken, roasted tomato and goat cheese atop a layer of mozzarella cheese. We’ll admit we were thrown off a bit with the combination of the two cheeses, but overall, the pie was good.
Next time we stop by, we plan on trying the pie dubbed the Rockledge made with sweet sausage, goat cheese, and fresh basil.
