Pie-O-My

January 13, 2009

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?)
