The Ultimate Tomato Pie

tomatoe pie gino

Gino Lenti, owner of La Villa Pizza & Family Restaurant in Morrisville, learned how to cook Southern Italian food as a boy growing up on a farm in the Italian Province of Calabria. His mother taught him how to cook all the traditional foods, including pizza, which was a staple at the Lenti household. La Villa offers delicious veal, seafood, chicken and pasta entrées. The salad menu includes Antipasto Salad, Arugula Salad, Greek Salad and Tuscany Salad. But what really brings the crowds to La Villa is the Chambersburg Tomato Pie. Of course, from its beginning in 1998, Pizza has been a staple at La Villa. However, Gino heard people rave about tomato pies made in the Trenton neighborhood of Chambersburg. These pies were considered the best in area, maybe even in the United States. So in 2005 Gino had a friend take him to Trenton to try a tomato pie. The thin crusted pie was delicious, Gino thought, and he knew he could replicate it. He kept buying them and making them until he had it down to a tee. But as he made them and sampled them, he felt something was missing. Gino decided that he could make a better tomato pie than anything made in Trenton. So he started to improve the pies and the results were astounding. Streams of people came La Villa to eat pizza in, takeout or delivered. Among the improvements that Gino made was the use of an ingredient that Gino’s mother used in her pizza. This ingredient, a family secret, changed the taste very subtly and made Gino’s pies a notch better than anything being made in Trenton. In fact, his pies became so good that people came from outside the area, willing to travel way out of their way, to have a tomato pie at La Villa. When making his pies, Gino uses only the finest ingredients. Even when cheese went sky high for a season, Gino did not skimp. And for those who like their pies topped with sausage, Gino makes his own sausage. The square Trenton Tomato Pies are made in square pans imported from Calabria. La Villa Pizza & Family Restaurant is located at 21 S Pennsylvania Avenue, Morrisville, PA 19067. To see a menu, visit www.lavilla-restaurant.com. To order, call 215-736-3113 or 215- 736-3116.
