Found another one! My friend Mona, who is one of our hardest-working volunteers, introduced me to her high school friend, Carmine who owns "Jersey Pizza Boys".

Of course, they were featured by Barstool Sports and received a very respectable 8.1 rating. As Dave Portnoy explained, it was one of the highest scores he gives for non-coal-fired pizza!

It was great to meet Carmine and his sons, sister, and dad.

Great family, awesome pizza. I was about 40 minutes late to the small business meet & greet because there are two things you can count on in the Garden State, great pizza and terrible traffic!

Carmine sent me home with three different pizzas: cheese, grandmothers, and Detroit.

All delicious. The cheese brought me back to two great pies at the Jersey Shore, Mack's Pizza in Wildwood and Klee's in Seaside Heights. The grandma pie had a perfect balance of ricotta and meatballs and the Detroit, well, let's say the cheese crust was perfect.

Thanks to Mona and her great family, her daughter Nina and her friend Vanessa, and "Nonna" her mom, turned out to join the crowd.

Appreciate Carmine and his sister, dad, and sons for the hospitality, energy, patience (we rescheduled a few times!), and of course outstanding pizza!
