Pie-O-My

So Midtown Lunch decided to compile a list of the best pizza in Midtown Manhattan. Because I work in the area, I can assure you from first hand experience…  although these may be the best, they are nothing to write home (or a blog) about.

Of course, as most things do, this got me thinkin’… what pizza is worth writing about? 

Naturally, I crossed the Hudson River to prepare my list of the Best Pizza in New Jersey. With respect to Pete Genovese and the Star-Ledger Munchmobile, below are my choices for Jersey’s top slices…

  • Pizza Town USA– Recently re-introduced to the tasty and seemingly always open stop just off exit 157 in Elmwood Park
  • Grimalidi’s– So maybe we stole it from Brooklyn, but this pizza has brought the brick oven to Hoboken
  • Carmine’s– The pizza I grew up on… way out in Netcong, NJ
  • The Godfather – Stop in East Hanover for the ultimate toppings from Bruschetta to Baked Ziti
  • Pete & Elda’s/ Carmen’s Pizzeria – After the beach, a stop in Neptune City  should be the first order of business down the shore… paper thin XXL
  • Lodi Pizza – Another great stop along Rt. 46
  • Rocco’s – It got me through college and greatly improves the Madison food scene
  • Lido’s Pizza – Back to Hackensack, my birthplace, for more paper thin crust
A slice of heaven! Rarely a leftover at Pete  & Elda's

While I’m not an expert, I do have respect for pizza from the 5-boroughs… for more info check out I Dream of Pizza… hoping for some L&B real soon (ya hear that, pags?)

    what, no shout out for 7 Star?

  2. Kelly Says:

    I second that…there should be a follow up article, listing best drunk pizza places….high up on my list are

    Hoboken Pizza
    Benny Tudino’s
    7 Star
    Uptown Pizza (so conveniently located at the foot of City Bistro)

    I mean, Domino’s in college got me through in four years…Drunk pizza deserves some credit

    You and Kelly need to seriously go to my fav pizza place in downtown JC. It’s Lisbon Pizzeria 256 Warren St, Jersey City, New Jersey ( NJ ) 07302 and was litterally right across the street from where I lived in the Gotham…best effing pizza I’ve ever had, and everyone I took there agreed. Only downside is that it’s take out only…very small place next to a portuguese restaurant.
