If there’s one assumption about New Jersey that’s we’re not upset about it’s the quality of our food. Whether it’s diners or bakeries, we Garden Staters know how to whip up a good meal. And that couldn’t be truer than when it comes to pizza.
With so many reputable pizzerias across the state, we had to break it down a bit or else we’d be here for days. These are the best pizza spots in Hudson County.
Удивительно, но жизнь в нашей деревеньке кипит даже во вторник. Я всегда думала, что в Джерси сити вечная тишина и пустота! Не там видимо ходила до этого, а может просто все меняется. Я обычно в тарелки не заглядываю, но сегодня это делала, и еда выглядит очень привлекательно! К примеру в этом рестике по вторникам мидии all-u-can-eat 10$! Я боюсь, они быстро разорятся, когда я к ним наведаюсь во вторник😹
A cozy little pizza place that is co-owned by Dan Richer, who also runs the highly recommended Arturo’s in Maplewood. The menu is small; there are eight pizzas, salads, and small plates but the flavor is delicious. Some of the pizzas include the “panna” pizza with tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, grass-fed PA cow’s cream, arugula and parmigiana. Make sure to also try the fire-roasted meatballs as an appetizer!
What To Eat: The soppressata pizza for $17 the perfect combo of meat and cheese.
Basile’s offers thin crust and special dough. Russell Basile (the owner) says he uses his grandmother’s old recipes; local water, homemade sauce, Wisconsin cheese and the real secret – Panko. He puts the Japanese breadcrumb on the bottom of all of his round pies, of which there are 20.
What To Eat: Obviously the Grandma Pizza for $20 is a must-have.
The décor is old country Italian family, the portions are generous and the brick oven pizzas are to die for – especially the margarita brick oven pizza. It’s a no frills joint in terms of décor, but is top of the game in terms of flavor.
What To Eat: The Quattro Stagioni is a delicious variation on the classic four-cheese pizza and has a combo of eggplant, artichokes, mushrooms, and prosciutto ($13.95).
Grimaldi’s doesn’t try to hide its pizza under fancy names and ingredients. They’re an old school pizza joint with a simple menu of your favorites that have been passed down from generation to generation.
What To Eat: Their specialty is white pizza so if you’re a fan of cheesy pizza and could care less about sauce; this place should be your go-to ($16.75).
Everything about this place is huge from the menu to the size of their dishes. You can fill up on salads, pastas, appetizers, sandwiches, and more. Bonus: it’s BYOB.
What To Eat: Make sure to try one of their specialty pies –the Buffalo Chicken Pie – it’s outstanding and fresh ($18).
