Delorenzo Tomato Pies

DELORENZO TOMATO PIES (Trenton) Since 1938, the DeLorenzo family has been serving its unsurpassed tomato pies in two Chambersburg locations marked by the long lines of patrons outside. Regulars know the limitations: no salads, no pasta, no bar (it’s BYO), no reservations, no credit cards, no décor. Just soda and pie.

On a wispy-thin, perfectly charred crust, plummy bits of tomato, redolent with fresh basil and garlic, go over instead of under generous sprinklings of mozzarella and romano. Actual hunger is irrelevant—the pie is so good you just keep eating.
