Bergen Pizzerias Enter Top 25 Pizza Power Rankings

[photo source: Vesta’s Wood-Fired] launched their Pizza Power Rankings last October and gatekeeper/writer Pete Genovese promised the rankings would be updated twice a year. Seven months later the top 25 pizzerias in New Jersey have changed – the current top 25 (including 12 newcomers) — with a number of new and previous area places included.

The biggest win came from Vesta’s in East Rutherford, which made the rankings for the first time at #3. Geneovese credited the team at Vesta’s for the use of “out of box ingredients”.

The venerable Elmwood Park institution Pizza Town USA dropped to #11 (it was #6 previously) and suffice to say Bruno’s (#20, previously #15) in Clifton still has the best Sicilian.


This list included an “One The Rise” section — places seemingly thrown in for no other reason than to make more recommendations (these were places recommend by readers or visited by Genovese and included an additional 15 pizza spots) — included Ronnie G’s in Ramsey.

Those booted from the list after making an appearance last time? A Mano in Ridgewood, Kinchley’s in Ramsey and Mario’s in Clifton have that honor locally.
