jcnight,

you're SO right about the La Rustique (and in my experience, John's) in the box phenomenon.

You just can't get those pies to go... ruined.

I like Delenio because they've got one of the most original crusts around. Only had a crust as original while in Boston at this place "Supreme's" Their crust was like a mega Jamaican beef patty crust flattened out and turned into pizza. Yellow, too!

Pizza Patrol names best pizza in New Jersey

Finally. the winners.
After six months, 1,000 slices and 9,000 miles on the Munchmobile, the Pizza Patrol sat down and picked New Jersey's best pizza.
It wasn’t easy.
The Pizza Patrol sampled plenty of mediocre pizza during our three-season search, as the weekly reviews attest. We also enjoyed plenty of great pizza, which made the selection of winners difficult.

Our six overall winners span a range of looks and locales — from a tiny pizza parlor in Raritan Borough and a strip mall pizzeria in Lyndhurst to a no-bathroom, no credit-card legend in Trenton and a spacious sports bar/pizzeria in Orange.
Reactions from our winners ran from joy and jubilation to surprise and disbelief. Allie DeLucia, owner of DeLucia’s Brick Oven Pizza in Raritan, our plain pizza champion. kept repeating the same word — "Really?’’
Yes, Allie, really.

"I’m a true believer that anything can be improved,’’ said Charlie Wilson, owner of La Rustique Cafe in Jersey City, our pick for best margherita pizza in New Jersey.

La rustique is my pick for sit and stay. Once their pizza goes in a box it really changes things drastically.
My #1 is by far Larry and Joes for a delivary. They are awsome!!!

Larry and Joe's Pizza on Newark Avenue between Chestnut and Baldwin is the best NY style pizza in JC. They deliver downtown too.

Ask for fresh garlic on your pie. No canned stuff either... they chop it fresh.

Their Greek salad is noteworthy also.

I get pizza from La Rustique all the time and love it, but this past weekend we got a Buffalo Chicken pizza and it was terrible! There was too much sauce; we couldn't pick up the slices, but the crust was burned black on the edges. The cheese wasn't in the usual slices, it was shredded and they were very skimpy with it. and skimpy with the chicken. The regular pizza man didn't seem to be in... :( Maybe just an off day.

I've had it (carry-out). It's very good.

In fact, I think you've just given me an idea for tonight's dinner.

Yeah it's the best real pizza in JC -- but Grimaldi's in Hoboken is a little better. IMHO

For that other kind of pizza we will eat Carmines...

Gargiulo's tastes pretty good, but it is a bit too soggy and greasy to make it a regular part of our rotation. John's, Buon Appetito, and Lisbon get our votes. Also, Gargiulo's is closed on weekends. It pisses me off when local businesses close on weekends. They are basically just a corporate cafeteria for downtown businesses when they do this.

I am going to put in my vote for Gino's in the Heights. Their regular pie is just servicable, but they have a pie called the Grandma which is outstanding. It is pretty much what my Sicilian grandma used to make when I was a kid. Square, but not thick crusted, with a sweet, garlic-y sauce and not too much cheese. I highly recommend it!

Just tried Lisbon Pizza the other day and it was actually really good (and cheap). I'm a fan of carmine's too... And although I love Prestos Italian food, i wasn't that impressed with their pizza (pick-up/carry out only).

I'm new to the area so havent tried too many places. I did try Helen's however and would not recommend. The dough reminded me of domino's. I thought Stella's on Grove and Buen Appetito (sp?) was better.

Carmines is good. Very convenient. More convenient than good, although I wish they stayed open a little later.

The chicken and spinach pizza is the best I have ever had. Hands down. Give it a shot.

Carmine's is excellent. It's the closest to New York style pizza around here. Delenio is great for the super thin crust type. Pete @ Delenio makes a great calzone too.

article in the ledger today about pizza, and the writer is eating at Carmine's Pizza Factory. I've seen it, but never went in. Thoughts?

My vote is for Delenio
357 7th St.

Not really sure how to categorize their pizza, but the quality of the ingredients/toppings is top notch and it isn't greasy.

I found Gargiulo's to be on the small side (in terms of slice size), a little thick and heavy. I personally like a very thin crispy type of pizza. My fave so far is Paulus Hook Brick Oven Pizza (as previous mentioned in other people's responses). House slices, which are Margherita, are huge and extra thin.

And I recently had their wings and chicken parm-- both very good!

Don't understand the confusion. John's in NYC is my favorite just like I said in the other thread. This one is talking about the best pizza in Jersey City and for me that's Garguilo's on Greene St. Still don't understand how John's in NYC can be so different from the one in J.C. but it is. Plus sometimes its nice being able to grab a quick slice which John's doesn't offer.

Which is it Mike? In the other thread you said "John's in NYC is actually my favorite." So, Gargiulo is the best but you like John's more?

I second the rave review of the new place on Morris. I went there last night and got two plain slices (fresh mozz, good sauce and basil) and a roasted portabello salad. I was very very impressed! Not the best pizza I've had in my life, but it was worlds above the basic corner pizza joint I used to have in my old manhattan neighborhood. I'm very please to have this new addition nearby!

The salads look great as do the entrees - they have eggplant parm, pastas, salads, etc in large portions to take home.

I asked about the owner and they said it's owned by the same people as the wine shop next door. Very smart idea - I hope they do well!

Who owns the PHook Brick Pizza ?


It looks to be the same as the wine store there on the corner of Washington and Morris, Liberty Wine and Deli. Looks like he owns that whole corner there (Mr. Lee is his name, I think?) It's definitely connected because when I went to grab some beer you could see right into the pizza shop, though you can't go through that way.

But again, seriously, the pizza was amazing, and they sell by the slice.
