When I moved here and first seen tomato pie, I couldnt understand the attraction. I tried it and just the temperture turned me off. Its like cold cheap pizza with no cheese. Must be a poor Italian dinner.

its differnt then pizza .it is what the title says.its not cheap and it doesnt have that tasteless phoney not fresh mozzarella smothered all over it.its a utica original and it tastes great.napolis on my last visit in august reminded me of how fantastic it is.
even real cold pizza tastes great.utica years ago had some excellent pizza.grimaldis pescatores garramones.now the city is loaded with tasteless phoney cheze pies..
fresh genuine mozzarrela in small circular pieces that dont smother the pie.quality tomatoes that are fresh and make a good sause.add fresh basil oregano base the crust with a little imported olive oil and bake it at 900 degrees to a crisp crust thats thin and your in business.
the rest is commercial junk.

"Tomato pie" is another one of those utica excuses for fame. Take NOTHING and hype it into something. The rest of the evolved world calls it a half made cold pizza. Anyone who really thinks it's some "great dish" is one of those lifelong stuck-in-utica type people that think joe bonamazza is famous and the aud was the inspiration for madison square garden and annette funnicello still lives on Whitesboro St. The whole history of utica is overembellishing total failure, half an idea or claiming they invented something they didn't. You don't become the joke of the rest of the civilized country for nothing!

It would appear that in the "evolved world" Annette Funicello and Madison Square Garden have something to do with tomato pie. I guess if you ask a simple question here you have to expect answers from simpletons.

...actualy the history of utica is far from a total failure.there is no doubt the last 43 years the city has been in a steady decline to the point it can rival any area economicaly as a depressed area.many of you are young and did not live in the city when it was a fantastic place to grow up in before the decline.heres a fact.in the 1880s utica was forth in per capital income in the country.very affluent.another fact utica had some serious political clout and im not talking ruffie.in the early 1900 hundreds we had roscoe conkling as a us senator who ran tammany hall and was teddy roosevelts boss and at the same time had the vice president of the usa in james schoolgraft sherman and several govenors of the state including heratio seymour.for years untill the late 60s early 70s utica had full employement.it once was the knitting capitol of the world..after the mills left utica became the radio capital of the world with over 50 percent of all the transister radios made were made here.utica had several buzzing manufactors many home grown like utica cutlery utica radiator mele indium corporation etc etc.highly skilled labor second to none in the usa.the train station was one of the most beautifull in the nation and extremly busy.historic baggs square had several major political meetings with national figures attending.
nearby a short 10 mile ride the first computer ever made was made in illion ny and by skilled utica folks.the city had a excellent mix of cultural activities
on my way via train to ny city to watch the second ali-frazier fight i was reading the ny times and a 4 page article caught my eye.it said what utica ny had before ny city.JAZZ.it gave as a example the marine hotel owned by frank-shine -marine as the first to have nightly entertainment of note in utica.all time great jazz artists played there and if they were a success they went to ny city for bookings and fame.in that reguard it wasnt nycity but utica like the sinatra song if you can make it there you can make it anywhere.
i can go on and on.yes utica has a great history of affuence both culturaly and politicaly ande also wealth as pointed out.the golden era is gone but dont tell me uticas history has always been a failure..as usual folks dont know what there talking about.yes its depressed its torn down now butit wasnt always like that.i love my home town.im proud to say i was born there grew up there.i still have several lifelong friends there that are amoung the finest folks youll ever meet.

another thought.utica was a place on the map at one time for great artists to perform there.enrico caruso sang there.the great mario lanza sold out the stanley theater in hours.in the vaudville era al jolson eddie cantor and others came...hall of fame baseball phillies great richie ashburn many times talked while broadcasting the phillies games how he loved the city of utica while playing there with the utica blue sox..

Hear-Hear well said and thank you! It was a great place to grow up and had a lot to offer both young and old. The playgrounds, parks, pools, skiing, skating, golf, safe streets...etc. I have traveled all over the world and the Utica-Rome area food is some of the best, including tomato pie (maybe they have not had a good one). The decline of the area is sad and due to the loss of the many industries that we once had and kept sending overseas. The decline is not from the people that live here. We need to start making things that people want again and prosperity will return.

Either you moved here or your grew up here. If you dont like it here, move and stfu. If you stayed here, then sit down and stfu. Stop all the bitching. There are both better and worse places to be than in Utica. People are good, food is decent, crime isnt as bad as other places, and sometimes the weather sucks. Its not NYC, nor is any other place in the country, other than NYC itself. So again, stfu.

You Italians have never been very bright. I mean what did you invent besides crime? Take the cheese you couldnt afford off a pizza and call it tomatoe pie. Take the sauce off and call it Italian bread. Take some leftovers and throw it in hot water and call it "Italian wedding soup". What a bunch of proud simpletons.

As you can see the simple folk living here have thin skin and little ability to accept the truth so they resort to infantile displays of their cesspool heads in attempts at humor. Too bad the rest of the world disagrees with you and considers PIZZA a popular food, not "half a pizza" in order to have some ridiculous cultural claim to "fame". Typical utican reply for everything: Worthless noise. Who's surprised?

Nice try but if you're going toparade through life like Richard Simmons with abanner proclaiming you're a "special utican" and privy to culture and understanding few can conceive of then expect to get laughed at by visiting outsiders who, sorry Virginia, can look right through your sad town and laugh laugh laugh at the petty machinations and claims to culture and greatness. Now stand alongside the Thruway and hope a truck passes and drops off something called "cheese" it will say on the box. Add that on top of your not so famous cold wet half a pizza and stand back! Make way for evolution uticans it's been running you over for about 20 years now. Look around you at what reality has done to fantasy uticaland!

You're an uneducated imbecile and most likely retarded then. Who's the simpleton here? You owe a lot to italian innovation and sciance you upstate retard hick. Let me guess- you're some irish public servant right? Speak up about your great race so we can have a laugh or shut the fk up you ignorant utican throwback. Wow "eyetayins didnt invent nuttin but cwime" waa waa waa I'd love to have a look at you and your simpleton family speak up. Maybe you need a drink you sound a little angry. Mad someone laughs at your town? Raise your standards or deal with it.
