Where to get the best white pizza in NJ — and what tastes great on it
I'm a big fan of white pizza, and in New Jersey, we have some of the best places to get it. I love the taste of the olive oil meshing with the garlic and thick topping of mozzarella to form an incredible taste in your mouth, especially when it's not too hot.
Although I'm also a fan of red pizza, provided the gravy is great, I find that white pizza can create a taste around any topping that, to me, is far superior. Some great toppings bring out the best in white pizza. One of which is pepperoni, bacon and sliced tomato, which was given to me while I waited on line for fresh mozzarella at the now defunct A and S Salumeria.
Based on that advice, I continued to explore the great places in New Jersey to not only get white pizza, but some great toppings to order with it. Try these, your taste buds will thank you.
While talking about this topic on New Jersey 101.5, we heard from Guy Gencarelli, of Gencarelli's in Pine Brook, who told us about their potato white pizza.
"It's a potato pie with garlic and all types of seasonings and grated cheese, It's delicious," says Guy.
Here are some other great white pizza places from my social following:

Only the one I used to make...straight dough and punch holes in it so it doesn't bubble. Rub minced garlic in...a little oil, salt and pepper. Top the white crust with sliced plum tomatoes and layer the tomatoes with fresh milk mozzarella. When it comes out of the oven, top with fresh basil chiffonade. You'll never get it better without gravy.
