Hot Tomato Pizzeria is consistently good. It's always busy though, so plan accordingly, but the food is great, frequent live music, and a great patio.

It was the 3rd time I've tried to eat there and we finally got in. This place is always busy for a reason. If you are passing by Fruita Co. and dont stop for a slice at Hot Tomato..... well you are missing out.

Yes we are dog friendly. We ask that your furry friends are on a leash and unfortunately we cannot have them inside the restaurant but are welcome on our patios! Hope that helps! In crust we trust!

I don't believe they use animal products in the crust unless you are opposed to yeast, which is living until tossed into the high temp oven and killed.
