    We all know New York is the BBQ capital of the world, but now New Jersey is staking its claim as pizza capital. Congrats, teel!

    NY Post trying to sabotage an accurate claim with a terrible picture. Disgusting behavior.

    The fact that Jersey has two pizza joints instantly recognizable by people in Nebraska and Ohio just goes to show that the OP is true

    New Haven has the best pizza that I've had for a region.

    Arturo's in Maplewood is the best NJ pizza I've had, and it is absolutely fantastic. #hottakes

    This is correct. Arturo's the best. One of the owners left arturo's and opened Razza in Jersey City which is supposed to be better but I haven't gotten there yet. It was named best pizza in nyc (even though its in jersey)

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/12/dining/razza-pizza-review-jersey-city.html

    Is New York’s Best Pizza in New Jersey?
    Razza






    [​IMG]

    JERSEY CITY — We were on our third pie of the night at Razza, across the street from City Hall here, when Ed Levine stopped chewing long enough to ask me a question:

    “Are you going to say that the best pizza in New York is in New Jersey?”

    Ed Levine knows what it means to make a strong claim for a pizzeria. The founder of the website Serious Eats and the author of the book “Pizza: A Slice of Heaven,” he caused a stir in 2004 by writing in The New York Times that the pies at Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix “just might be the best pizza in America.” So when it started to dawn on me, about a year after my first dinner at Razza, that no pizzeria in the five boroughs gave me as much pleasure, I thought of Ed.

    New York pizzerias can be divided into those that apply the steady heat of gas (the most revered of these is Di Fara Pizza) and those that subject their pies to the blistering, scorching fires of coal or wood. The high-heat group is further subdivided into the bakers, such as Co. and Totonno’s, whose reputations rest on their dough, and the cooks. Among the cooks, there are those whose pizzaioli express themselves through combinations of toppings that have never before occurred to anybody (Roberta’s, Paulie Gee’s) or a less exhibitionistic, farm-to-table sensibility, of which the late Franny’s was the paragon.


    Razza, which burns wood, is one of the few that excel at both dough and toppings. Even if Ed and I had learned, after our seven-minute PATH ride from the World Trade Center to Grove Street, that the kitchen had run out of cheese, tomatoes and the rest, I would have asked for a pizza dressed with nothing but olive oil. I’m willing to bet it would be delicious that way, with the texture and flavor of naturally leavened bread right from the oven.

    I was glad it didn’t come to that, though, because Razza dresses its pies with local ingredients so distinctive that every time I’ve eaten there, I’ve learned something about New Jersey farms.

    I could have stopped there, my point made. But as Ed noticed belatedly, we’d ordered two white pies, and he wanted to try one with tomatoes. His choice was the classic margherita. I was exceptionally curious, though, about a locavore variant called the Garden State margherita. Its sauce was made from New Jersey heirloom tomatoes and its mozzarella from the milk of Sussex County water buffaloes.

    While we were trying to decide, Dan Richer, the chef and owner, came to our table. Mr. Richer, who opened Razza five years ago, may or may not have recognized us, but in any case he had a solution. When he came back, he had placed one half of each margherita variant together to make a full circle. He hadn’t invented this 50-50 format for us, he said; he’d been experimenting with it for an idea he plans to spring on the public shortly: a pizza tasting menu.

    Razza’s standard margherita, as I knew from previous exposure, is a model within the prescribed parameters of the form. I particularly admire the sauce, which is less acidic and bitter than many, and about as sweet as possible without tasting sugary.

    blight-resistant trees. The nuts, fat and round, are barely chopped, and baked with ricotta, mozzarella and just enough honey to point up their natural sweetness. The pizza is called Project Hazelnut. I have never had anything like it.

    Farm-consciousness informs the whole menu. New Jersey greens and fruits go into the salads, which are fresh and vivid in ways not normally seen at the corner slice joint.

    New Jersey wheat berries and ambient New Jersey yeasts made up the first batch of the pizza dough starter, which has been burbling along for eight years now. New Jersey pork and Hudson Valley beef go into the tender meatballs, which are roasted in the wood oven until they carry a minor char. They are great meatballs, and suggest the kind of Italian restaurant Mr. Richer might have run had he not become transfixed by the intricacies of pizza.


    Pennsylvania cream and milk go into Razza’s only dessert, a panna cotta that is more fluffy than firm and is served under a pool of dark salted caramel. Ed and I, having eaten a pizza and a half each, shared a single panna cotta. Then he asked me again: “Are you going to say that the best pizza in New York is in New Jersey?”

    I am, Ed. I am.

    Angelo's. used to be in Haddonfield. barstool did a review at some point.

    the guy doesn't even have a phone and only does take out and there's a line down the block every day. I would never eat there out of principle.

    Artsy fartsy nonsense.

    The best pizza on the face of God's green Earth is right here:



    He corrects that 8.3 abomination score (still better than 'The best pizza in NYC [Jersey City] Razza) within a few days to a 9+.

    Edit: After re-watching the review I've determined the fonzanoons in Razza wouldn't have known whether to shit or go blind if he walked into the place and asked for the 'real guinnea shit'.

    Bro, I'd go out for beers and work the jukebox with you anytime but we're not eating if you think Papa John's is anything but emergency 'I need to eat or I'll die' pizza.
