Philadelphia Tomatoe Pie
re: Jamie D
That's exactly what it means, vs. a savory pie as in pie crust filled with sliced tomatoes.
It's generally a square thick crust pie (almost foccacia like) with tomato sauce an usually parm or pecorino sprinkled on top.
As a Philly native, I ate it at every family occasion since they were in Montgomery County, where this pie is extremely popular and generates "the best" of wars like cheesesteaks.
I'd be interested to see if anyone in NoVa does tomato pies.
