Review: Tomato Bar – Schererville, IN

Date:2/13/2021 – take out
Type / Appearance:It had been a while since I last ate at Tomato Bar. So, it was clearly time to officially review their pizza. I originally tried to order online, but the process is flawed and cumbersome, so I just called. I ordered two pizzas; one half plain (meaning cheese only for you midwesterners) and half pepperoni. The other pizza was with grilled chicken with light swirl of BBQ sauce. They said 40 minutes and I was there at the 45 minute mark and they were ready. I picked them up through the drive-through window, so that was convenient. The pizzas were boxed nicely in strong, branded boxes and the pizzas travelled well on the way home. And then, you open the box and, wait for it…… PIE SLICED! Damn – two pie-sliced pizzas. They were beautiful!
Dough:Good thickness, so nice and thin. I bit of semolina on the bottom, but not overpowering at all. The slices folded nicely. My son looked at me and said “This is great! It is almost like New York Pizza.” And I have to say, so far, this is THE closest thing I’ve tasted to NYC pizza around here. The crust was thin, but not too thin and it was crispy with a great taste and texture.
Sauce:Very good sauce. Great taste.
Cheese:Great blend and the cheese to sauce ratio was perfect. The cheese had a great taste and texture.
Oil:Not oily at all. The pepperoni half was a bit greasy, but that’s just the meat making that happen.
Smell:Simply a wonderful smell.
Other:Really polite staff on the phone and at the drive-through.
Comments:This was a great pie and you can taste the quality ingredients. Honestly, I enjoyed the pie with the BBQ chicken on it more than the pepperoni, but that’s just me. Really, this was a great ordering experience and a great-tasting pizza. The other pizza places in the area should all order a pie from here and taste it. They’d all learn something.
