Tomato Pizza Pie Joint

Was walking around with my niece down on Melrose. Ended up on the western end of it across the street from Fairfax High School. About a few months prior I was searching the internet for NY Style pizza places in the greater LA area and saw this place on the net. I had all the intentions of giving it a try one day but on the day we were walking on Melrose it was the furthest from my mind but because he stumbled upon it I knew it was my golden opportunity to try it.

First off the quality of the pizza is top notch. Great taste and great ingredients. Really enjoyed it but it's way overpriced. For a slice of pizza pie it's $3.00. Not bad right, that's the going rate, right? No. It's the going rate of normal sized slices of NY style pizza pie but these were half the size. There have been a lot of NY style pizza places popping up over the city that are really good and the prices for a slice are about $3.00 but the slices are very large. These are half the size. I know they have to make money but so do other places where they charge the same for a full size of NY Style pizza pie. As good as this is I won't go back because it's way overpriced. I know that it does not cost a lot to make a pizza. Yes they have overhead and all but so do other places that serve a real size NY Pizza pie slice for the same price. Over at Yelp most people give it really good reviews and say the price is good. I don't know where they have been eating at but it's not a good price. To get the equivalent of one real sized slice of NY Style pie you'll have to pay for two slices which would be $6. Way overpriced. I am not sure where these people are getting that the price is good when it's not. This truly is overpriced and not worth it even though it's good.

What's your take on this place?
