Two Local Pizza Places Made the Best Pizza in America List
It's National Pizza Month, so, maybe that's why The Daily Meal just released their annual list, and I'll tell you what, it's making me hungry. They based their decision on the sauce, well-distributed cheese, how good the crust is (that's big for me too), and overall balance of ingredients. I do agree with the local places that made the list, but, there was one glaring omission, I think. See if you agree.
The first local place to make it at #37 is Delorenzo's Tomato Pies in Robbinsville. Yum. Definitely a favorite of mine. The crispy crust does it for me. They're doing something right because they've been around or 70 years. Did you know it first opened in Trenton in 1947?
The 2nd local winner, and another favorite of mine is Papa's Tomato Pies, also in Robbinsville, which landed at #52 on the list. Here's a cool stat, it was established in 1912, and is considered America's oldest continuously owned, family owned pizzeria. Family is everything at Papa's, including their pizza recipe, which was passed down through many generations, and survived their move from Trenton to Robbinsville.
You can check out the rest of the list HERE. There are a few others from NJ on there.
Can you guess which local pizza place I think is missing from this Best in America list? I'll give you a hint...it's in Princeton...Witherspoon Street. Yup, it's Conte's Pizza. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Thin, crispy crust. Those little pepperonis. Omg.
Can you guess what's for lunch today? Pizza. Lol.
