Tomato Pie is a Trenton thing. I didnt know they called it Tomato pie in Philly area though, I thought it was just pizza.

Philly sausage is better too.

Yeah, Philly pretzels are 100 times better than NY pretzels but, it is a pretzel. Personally, I can't get too excited about them.

This is tomato pie . . . but again, it's not from Philly, it's from Conshohocken. I've never tried to get tomato pie anywhere in Philadelphia.

Is it just topped with tomato sauce or is there cheese under the tomato? I had a client in Norristown that used to eat them and got them locally. Don't know where though.

I thought tomato pie was another bright idea of Philly cause I never really heard of it until here...I mean what's pizza without the cheese?

And what's Philly sausage?...

Tomato pie has parmesan cheese on top of the tomato sauce, but no mozzerella. It's really quite good, and MUCH healthier for you.

The only negative thing I can say about Philly other than the crime is that the Italians are leaving in droves, and being taken over by the damn Irish!!! AAARGH!!!

Philly wrestling fans are great. AT least back before Vince Russo, Vince McMahon, and Eric Bischoff all ruined the sport. In the 80's going to the old Civic Center for NWA events, the ECW Arena, and the old Spectrum for WWF I met many knowledgeable fans who knew the business and respected it. This is no longer true in this sad era of Cena and CM Punk. What garbage! That being said Im sure there's a few old timers still hanging on and even a select new breed who represent. Im just not interested in finding out.
