Tom was born in the Bronx, learned to make pizza in his teens and has never stopped. He learned from the best in NY and Boston and at the ripe old age of 24, after running several Pizzerias back East, Tom created and launched Abbot’s Pizza Company in 1995. After 20 years Tom decided to launch Grey Block Pizza.

Why name it Grey Block Pizza?
Seriously Grey Block? Ahhh, there’s a heart in it! Grey Block Pizza is our way of being anti-chain, anti-conformist!
The within our logo is our symbol, stamp and flag pumping out to the world that small operators like us are still here, holding on, and holding out against all the big box corporates and the ugliness that they bring not to mention all the sheep who follow them.
The ‘Grey’ they bring will end up absorbing our individuality forcing us to have fewer and fewer choices! So when all you start to see are just grey blocks and no hearts you know it is time to check in and engage, not tune out!
Because before you know we may all lose our passion and there will only be the same old s***.
Grey Block Pizza is part of the real people pushing back from getting smothered beneath all this heartless machinery and are still keeping the spirit of connection alive.
We do our part with a small little heart and a chance to feed your soul old-school style. One slice at a time!
