Incredibly well prepared and fresh casual fare. Individual pizza with fresh mushrooms, peppers and sliced sausage. A grilled chicken sandwich with lots of fresh spinach, pesto on a rosemary white bread. Great service. Finished with a vegan poppyseed cookie that was out of this world...More

Tomato Head is one of our absolute favorite places to eat. Great salads, pizzas, sandwiches, drinks etc. Service is always good. And the desserts - yum. Cater to vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores - there's something for everyone. A Knoxville favorite.

Tomato Head never disappoints me, and the one time it did the management was so helpful and took really good care of us. Great pizza, great salads, nice wine and lots of other goodies. Be careful on desserts if they don't have a price next...More

I love the laid back atmosphere of Tomato Head. The food, beer and deserts are amazing! They were also able to accommodate my soy & dairy allergy. The brunch pizza is a must too!

This was the first successful new business in Knoxville's Market Square, and led the way for dozens more. Enjoy their pizzas, beer, and wonderful and creative sandwiches. Dinning inside or out.

A great place right on market square. Good for Pizza, pasta or salads. Many options for Vegan or Vegetarian diners. Service was great, friendly and prompt. They had a bakery also but we were too full to try it.

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.
