I know last year’s NJ.com pizza “power rankings” were posted here before, and I’m sure those on the board probably tend to not take much stock in lists such as these.
Any opinions on their winner or the other contestants?
Brooklyn Square Pizza, with locations in Jackson and Manalapan was chosen as the winner.
They’re best known for their upside-down Sicilian slice, similar to L & B Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn.
I’ve visited their Manalapan location before and I was pretty impressed with their pizza. Tasty, fluffy, airy dough, a tangy red sauce, and fresh cheese and ingredients.
It’s also not entirely fair to have a “best pizza” contest in general, as it tends to be of personal preference based on many styles competing (neopolitan, Sicilian, thin crust, etc.)
The other finalists for the contest were:
Angelo’s Pizzeria, Haddonfield
Bricco Coal Fired Pizza, Westmont
De Lorenzo’s Tomato Pies, Robbinsville
Kinchley’s Tavern, Ramsey
Razza, Jersey City
Santillo’s Brick Oven Pizza, Elizabeth
Tacconelli’s Pizzeria, Maple Shade
Talula’s, Asbury Park
Tony D’s Pizza, Caldwell
