Red Tomato Red Tomato, a pizza place in Dubai, has squeezed the store footprint to an extreme: two inches. Red Tomato gives customers a refrigerator magnet shaped like a pizza box to stick on their refrigerators.. A customer configures the magnet with a mobile phone, specifying favorite pizza and toppings, along with payment data to keep on file.
