*Tomato Pie versus Pizza:
There are those who say that the Trenton speciality known as Tomato Pie has a thinner, crisper crust, with the cheese sparingly put on the crust before the sauce, whereas a pizza has a thicker crust with sauce first, then plentiful cheese on top. Nick Azzaro says that sign makers charged by the letter, and "PIZZA" is five letters shorter than "TOMATO PIES".
**Mustard Pie is another local delicacy. Mustard is put into the dough before the pie is baked, some people love it and others don't get it. Why don't you be the judge?
