Gennaro’s Tomato Pie gets some national love, plus reheating instructions

The national version of Eater named Gennaro’s Tomato Pie, which we showed you first in December, one of the 21 hottest pizzerias in the country in its pizza “Heat Map.”

From the blurb:

Many bemoaned the shuttering of Lombardi’s Pizzeria back in 2005, but the former owner, Mike Giammarino, has brought those popular tomato pies back to town in a 1940s-inspired dining room.

We certainly are bemoaning no more. The listicle also gave a shoutout to Pizza Brain, the most buzzed about pizza restaurant in the history of man thanks to its pizza memorabilia museum and inventive toppings.

But Gennaro’s keeps it simple (click here for their takeout menu).

Meanwhile, they plan to start delivery soon. Plus, they posted on their Facebook page instructions about the best way to reheat their pizzas.

We get asked a lot of questions about how best to reheat a Gennaro’s Tomato Pie. Here is our recommendation. If you are picking up your pie, ask the kitchen not to cut it. Turn your oven on high. Around 450-500. When you get it home, place the pizza on the center rack for 3-4 mins. This will wick away any moisture from the pizza being in the delivery box. If you are reheating leftover slices use a non stick skillet. Get it hot, reduce the heat to low and place your slice cheese side up for 2-3 mins. Enjoy!

How helpful.
