About the Tomato:
Flour + Water + Yeast + Olive Oil + some secret spices = Hot Tomato Pizza Crust.
Stanislaus Tomatoes + Water + secret spices = Hot Tomato Pizza Sauce
Chunk o' Grande Mozzarella + Cheese grater = Cheese!
Fresh Veggies + Slicer = Toppings!
That about sums up what we do in a nutshell. If you've got a hankering for some Real, homemade pizza then you have found the right place. We believe that pizza should be made from scratch, on the property, not come from a freezer somewhere, or out of a bag. That's why it's so important to us to make our dough by hand every day, and grate our cheese and cut all of our veggies and salads fresh daily as well.
We just think it tastes better.
We, Jen and Anne, have been hanging out in Fruita for about 9 years. We moved to Fruita with our 3 pooches for the mountain biking, the laid back lifestyle and general love of the outdoors. We both worked at Over the Edge Sports for about 3+ years and then saw the opportunity for the Hot Tomato.
Jen comes from the East Coast, New Jersey to be exact and knew how to throw a pie and already had east coast attitude! Not only that but Jen grew up racing bikes, following the both the National and International mountain biking circuits, racing both downhill and dual slalom.
Anne grew up in Seattle, where making pizza was done with a rolling pin. She had to be taught the ways of the dough! Anne’s other gig is her photography, her work has been published by the likes of Bike Magazine, Sunset, Mountain Bike, Dirt Rag, Mountain Biking, Singletrack UK and many others.
