What a Combination: Pizza, Italian Subs, and Football!

What a Combination: Pizza, Italian Subs, and Football!

by | Oct 10, 2023

There’s a magical trifecta that brings people together every fall and winter like no other combination: pizza, Italian sub sandwiches, and football. These three elements, each iconic in its own right, create a symphony of flavors and experiences. Tommy’s Pizza and Subs is proud to play its role in delivering two of these three elements—mouthwatering pizza and subs—to the communities of Santee and El Cajon. As for football, whether it’s high school, college, or the pros, we’re fans just like everyone else.

What a Combination: Pizza, Italian Subs, and Football

Let’s Hear it for Pizza

Originating from the heart of Italy, pizza has evolved into a global sensation, becoming a staple at gatherings, parties, and game days. Around 5 billion pizzas are sold worldwide each year, with about 3 billion pizzas sold annually in the United States.

The beauty of pizza lies not only in its simplicity but also in its versatility. Whether you’re a fan of the traditional Margherita pizza with its perfect balance of tomato, mozzarella, and basil, or you prefer more adventurous toppings, there’s a slice for everyone.

Picture a room filled with the aroma of freshly baked dough, bubbling cheese, and a medley of your favorite toppings. The anticipation builds as friends gather around the large flat screen for the big game, eager to grab a slice.

The Perfect Sandwich: Hot or Cold

Bursting with layers of flavor and textures, cold Italian subs are a celebration of cured meats, cheeses, and fresh vegetables. The secret often lies in the quality of the ingredients and the meticulous assembly, two areas where Tommy’s excels. A perfectly crafted Italian sub is a work of art, with each component playing a crucial role in the symphony of tastes.

With hot sandwiches served on a sub roll, the magic begins with the bread and the crust offering a satisfying crunch while the interior stays soft and warm. What follows is a medley of savory fillings, ranging from succulent slices of premium offerings like chicken, roast beef, and homemade meatballs and sausage, to a generous layer of melted cheese, binding it all together in gooey perfection.

Fall Football Brings It All Together

Whether at the high school, college, or professional level, football represents a collision of strategy, athleticism, and sheer excitement that forms a perfect backdrop for indulging in the pleasures of pizza and Italian subs. In fact, we at Tommy’s think there’s something truly magical about pizza boxes and plates of Italian subs that make it a match made in football fan heaven. After all, game day (or night) isn’t just about the touchdowns and tackles; it’s about the camaraderie, the shared cheers, and the collective gasps that reverberate around the television or in the stands.

It’s also about sharing great food with friends and family—either filling up before the game, refilling at halftime, celebrating after the game, or all of the above. Tommy’s can provide the food fuel you need to make your football experience a memorable one. With authentic menu items made from freshest ingredients, Tommy’s Pizza & Subs has been working hard to create loyal, satisfied customers for more than 30 years.
