Jersey Pizzerias Make Best Pizza List

Continuing their annual string of lists for every food in the country, The Daily Meal revealed their 101 Best Pizzas in America for 2020 (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 4 pizzas make the list – two less than last year – including one in the top 5. They are as following:

#4 Razza Pizza Artigianale (Jersey City) – Website

#36 Star Tavern Pizzeria (Orange)

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

#64 Pizza Den (Princeton) – Website
