Tom’s House of Pizza opened its doors on June 7, 1963 when a young Tom realized his dream of opening a family pizzeria in South Calgary. The original location on Macleod Trail is still serving that same great thin-crust pizza today—all the while maintaining Tom’s original commitment to providing high-quality food at family-friendly pricing. These days, thin-crust pizza is the ‘in’ thing! Around here it’s been ‘in’ for decades. That’s why Tom's House of Pizza is a favourite destination for families who crave high-quality, thin-crust pizza.
John, the present owner and operator, worked for Tom in the late 1960s and vowed that he would one day own a Tom’s House of Pizza franchise. In May 1988, John achieved his own dreams and went into the pizza business. Since his ownership began, John has maintained and extended the core values that Tom established: to serve the highest-quality ingredients and to treat customers and staff like family. Indeed, at Tom’s we only serve the same quality food as we would our family, refusing to compromise quality and taste, and continuing to provide great tasting pizza at affordable prices.
At Tom's we have always served our thin-crust pizza with 100% Canadian mozzarella and Canadian cheddar cheeses, as well as the highest quality toppings available. Not only does Tom’s House of Pizza purchase the freshest toppings available, but many of our signature items are prepared in-house, such as our famous thin crusts, delicious tomato sauce, spicy mexi sauce, and Italian sausage. Our most popular item, our spicy pepperoni, is exclusive to Tom’s House of Pizza, as is our Italian salami.
Visitors will note that our menu hasn’t changed much over the years; however, when an item is added it must meet stringent quality standards. For instance, Tom’s House of Pizza introduced a gluten-free crust in January of 2012 but spent nearly a year looking for a crust that would meet our standards. The positive feedback we’ve received from our customers has shown that our commitment to our standards has paid off!
Looking towards the future, we see Tom’s House of Pizza maintaining the same commitment to quality food and dedication to our customers. We also look forward to having the opportunity to serve you a great-quality thin-crust pizza.
