Princeton and Robbinsville Old School Pizza Places Named Among Best in America
Conte's Pizza in Princeton and Papa's Tomato Pies in Robbinsville made the list of the best "old school" pizzerias in America, according to The Daily Meal. I certainly don't disagree.
Fun fact: PST used to be located on Witherspoon Street in downtown Princeton, and Conte's is within walking distance of the old studios, so, we were there a lot, and still are. We were just there a few weeks ago. I absolutely looooove it. The pizza's on the thin side, the crust is crisp, and the little pepperonis are perfect. I say, with confidence, that there's no better pizza in the entire area, and I've lived here my whole life. The place hasn't changed much, or at all, since I've been going there....I love the classic feel, and the same family members still wait on us. They're the best. I never realized until I read the article that the Conte family turned the downstairs of their home into the pizza place and bar in the 1950s. Wow.
To be fair, I've only had Papa's once, and I remember it being very good, but, it's been awhile. I'm willing to give it another try. Lol. It's also on the thin & crispy side from what I remember....which I'm a big fan of. The article quotes the owner, Nick Azzaro, as being proud of the fact that Papa’s was established in 1912 and is America’s oldest continuously owned family-owned pizzeria.
There's another place in NJ on the list...it's up in Hoboken. Check out the entire list HERE.
Geez, now I'm craving pizza.
