Jersey Pizzerias Make Best Pizza List 2019

Continuing their annual string of lists for every food in the country, The Daily Meal revealed their 101 Best Pizzas in America for 2019 (Read Full List). That’s specific pizzas, not just pizzerias, with the actual menu item being the winner at each particular pizza shop.

They relied on reviews from pizza experts, journalists, and readers – taking into account all styles (Neapolitan, Sicilian, New York, Connecticut, California, Detroit, St. Louis, bar pie, etc).

All were looking for the following basic qualities: nuanced sauce, good-quality & well-distributed cheese, good-quality & sensibly combined toppings, flavorful & savory crust, and a “judicious, well-balanced, and pleasing ratio of sauce, cheese, toppings, and crust that maintains a structural integrity no matter the style”.


While New York pizzerias dominated the competition, New Jersey had 6 pizzas make the list – including one in the top 3. They are as following:

#3 Razza Pizza Artigianale (Jersey City) – Website

#32 Star Tavern Pizzeria (Orange)

#37 Delorenzo’s Tomato Pies (Robbinsville) – Website

#47 Santillo’s Brick Oven Pizza (Elizabeth) – Website

#52 Papa’s Tomato Pies (Robbinsville) – Website

#55 Bread and Salt (Jersey City) – Instagram
