Tomato Schenectady, NY!

Yesterday I visited an area institution, "Perreca's Bakery" in Schenectady, NY. My intention was to pick up a loaf of their famous Italian bread, which I did, but I also noticed that they sold "tomato pie" by the slice. Naturally I had to try a slice ($1.25) for the road. Simply a delicious treat, soft, not too thick simple dough (could have been risen and baked a tad longer) topped with a very rich, thick layer of cooked sauce. Google "Perreca's" for more if you are interested. If you live in the area or have reason to be passing through, be sure to sample a true "tomato pie".
