Food Facts:
The two recipes above is indeed tomato casseroles and sometimes called tomato pie but an actual tomato pie is as follows:

Tomato pie is a type of pizza that is commonly regarded as unique to
Italian-American populations. Unlike typical New York-style pizza, which
is closely related to Neapolitan pizza, tomato pie is derived heavily from
Sicilian pizza, and as such can be found in predominantly
Sicilian-American communities.

The basic recipe for Tomato pie calls for a thick, porous, focaccia-like
dough covered with tomato sauce, then sprinkled with grated romano
cheese. Many bakeries and pizzerias have their own variation on this
formula. It is not usually served straight from the oven, but allowed to
cool and then consumed at room temperature or reheated. Like Sicilian
pizza, Tomato pie is baked in a large aluminum pan and served in square
slices.

One piece of a typical tomato pieTomato Pie is served in the
Northeastern United States, and especially in Italian communities in and
around West Utica, New York, Trenton, NJ, and the Norristown, PA area.
The closely related Sicilian pizza can be found throughout downstate
New York, New Jersey, and the Philadelphia metro area.

Namesake
As evidenced by period photographs of O'scugnizzo's pizza in East Utica, New York, Tomato Pie was sold as early as 1914. Along with Chicken riggies, sausage and peppers, and "greens" Tomato Pie is regarded as an idiomatic part of Utica Italian-American cuisine.

The Trenton Tomato Pie may even predate the Utica variety. Joe's Tomato Pie (now defunct) was first opened in 1910. Papa's Tomato Pie, whose proprietor learned the trade at Joe's, was opened two years later in 1912.

Trenton Tomato Pie
Trenton is known for their tomato pie. The second oldest tomato pie restaurant in the country is Papa's Tomato Pies that is located in Trenton, NJ. Trenton tomato pie is thin crust. In Trenton's version of tomato pie, the cheese (mozzarella) is placed on the pie first followed by the sauce. A few tomato pie eateries exist in Trenton's Chambersburg district, most famously Papa's, Delorenzo's on Hudson Street, and Delorenzo's on Hamilton Avenue.
