The Laughing Tomato



Hi, we are Sue and Armando. Every endeavor starts with a vision and ours took place while at an Arts Fair. We were mesmerized by the pizzas coming out of a blazing fire inside a dome made out something that looked like stucco. Two years later, after lots of reading, mentoring by some very generous people and jumping through a bunch of bureaucratic hoops, our vision is now a reality. 

After a good friend built us our unique wood-fired mobile pizza oven, we now create our pies fresh and hot at all varieties of events. 

With our specialty oven, we have three major goals: to earn a simple living while making delicious fresh pizza, to provide a friendly and engaging food experience, and last but not least to have as much fun as possible!

The Laughing Tomato treats your guests to the spectacle and flavors of on-sight pizza-making. We bring our oven to you and craft artisan pizza using fresh ingredients from local growers in Western Massachusetts. 

Upcoming events: 

Every Tuesday from April 26th - November 8th.

"We hired The Laughing Tomato for a family party and were blown away not only by how delicious everything tasted, but also by the presentation and service provided by Sue and Armando. They were a pure pleasure to work with from start to finish, and we'd gladly hire them again in a heartbeat!"
