Bubbling hot out of a 6,000 pound wood-fired oven, the Neapolitan pizzas at Wyoming’s Tomato Pie stand out from the crowd. Owner, CPM (Chief Pie Maker), and all-around affable guy Sam D’Angelo honors the tradition of pizza making with simple, fresh ingredients executed to perfection.
Tomato Pie keeps it old school with a modest tomato sauce that stays true to its ingredients. Add it to hand-tossed dough that gets crispy on the edges and bottom, and you have the foundation for a seriously delectable pizza. It’s no surprise they were voted Best Pizza in West Michigan by the local Italian-American Club.
Strike up a conversation with Sam while he builds you a delicious pie like the Four Cheese. Some people shy away from the blue cheese, but it makes this pie pop with flavor. Mozzarella, romano, and parmesan cheeses join the party, helping make it a melty masterpiece.
Not surprisingly, the tried-and-true Margherita is popular on Tomato Pie’s menu, but Sam hit pay-dirt with a Bosnian-inspired pizza called The Balkan. The smoky suho meso (dried meat) is complimented by the addition of pickles, mozzarella, and dried oregano. Word travelled quickly in the Bosnian community in the area, making it Tomato Pie’s number one seller.
Life is full of difficult choices; the menu at Tomato Pie is no different. Subs and salads round out their menu, but we can’t see ourselves veering away from their authentic pizza pies.
Tomato Pie is located at 5301 Division Ave S, Wyoming, MI 49548.
