Every once in a while, I like to mix it up when I鈥檓 in Wildwood and try a slice from somewhere besides Mack鈥檚. Franconi鈥檚 always comes up as one of the higher-rated pizzerias on the Boardwalk, so I decided to stop in one morning while I was coincidentally waiting for Mack鈥檚 to open. Unfortunately, it was a pretty mediocre slice of pizza. While the crust was nice and crispy, the sauce just had too much seasoning. For $2.50 a slice, I think I will just stick with Mack鈥檚.

Recently, while at a different pizzeria, I stumbled upon this article 聽from almost a decade back and realized the place ranked as having the best plain slice was a mere 10 minute drive from my job. Talk about destiny. As a brick oven pizzeria, DeLucia鈥檚 only did pies, so I got a small one in hopes I could polish the whole thing off on my own. After what felt like a half hour of waiting, my burning hot pie came out. While I was extremely excited to sample a slice, I was incredibly underwhelmed. All I could really taste was the hard, crackery crust. The cheese and sauce were a thin, mushy mess that tasted like nothing and just burned the roof of my mouth. The pepperoni side was a little better because it actually had some flavor, but it still wasn鈥檛 impressive. Needless to say, I will not be returning to DeLucia鈥檚 again. Spending $9.25 on an extremely mediocre personal pizza does not sound like my idea of a good time. Don鈥檛 believe the hype, The Star-Ledger does NOT know what they are talking about.

So the only reason I stopped at Pine Hill Pizza and Grill was because I was headed to Philly and had stopped in Pine Hill to check out All Things Video Games (http://allthingsvideogames.com/) and wanted a little something to hold me over before I got a cheesesteak in Philly. I wasn’t expecting much from a town right outside of Philly and it did not exceed my expectations at all. It was super cheesy (which is a good thing), but the sauce wasn’t good and it cut through the cheese in a bad way. The crust was light and crispy which was nice, but it really didn’t do enough for me. Next time I think I will just stick to getting a cheesesteak.

After Chelsea and I went to Harbor Light Mini Golf (awful experience, I got fiberglass in my hand), I made a quick stop at Carini’s on the way back because I’d never been. Unfortunately, I wish now that I had never stopped. The sauce was terrible and waaaaay overseasoned which pretty much ruined the slice. Everything else was fine (crust had some crisp, cheese was very standard, and there was sufficient pepperoni), but they just couldn’t save the slice from that sauce. A waste of $2.72. Stick to Mack’s if you’re in Wildwood!

I went to Brooklyn Bazaar recently to catch Trapped Under Ice for the first time since 2011 and decided to check out one of the higher rated pizzerias in the area. Russ Pizza was walking distance away, open ‘til 11, and had a pretty good rating online, so it seemed like a solid place to try. The slices here were gigantic. I’m glad I only ended up getting the BBQ chicken because I wasn’t even able to finish that. The service was kinda slow and I felt like I was waiting forever for my slice, but it did come out super hot all the way through, which a lot of places don’t do right when the slices are this big. They also didn’t skimp out on the chicken because it was loaded with it and it had a nice juicy flavor and it mixed nicely with the BBQ sauce. It was just so big that after a while I was kinda over the BBQ. I was also really impressed by how well this slice held together. Even though it was so dense, it didn’t fall apart at all. And this included the crust which wasn’t super hard and crackly or anything. Overall, a solid slice of pizza, even if it was a little too big, and at $6 for that and an orange soda, it honestly wasn’t that pricey for the city. Worth checking out at least once!

I made a pit stop at Vintage Vinyl recently and decided to finally try the pizza next door. I’ve been in the area before and remember Chas trying a slice a few years back because he wanted to use their bathroom, but I never ventured in myself. Looks like I wasn’t really missing out though. I was pretty hungry so I was planning to get two slices, but nothing really looked very good so I decided to get a single pepperoni slice. It was ok, but that’s about it. It was floppy and super greasy which made it messy to eat. The pepperoni was pretty good and is probably what made the slice bearable because from what I could taste of the sauce it seemed questionable at best. I mean it could have been worse, but for $2.65 I’m hoping for some higher quality pizza. I ended up going to the McDonald’s down the road after I left for a McPick 2 because that slice was not cutting it. Don’t bother.

A few summers back I stopped at a Gianni鈥檚 Pizzeria聽in Oakhurst聽that blew me away. This summer, I found myself in Red Bank looking for a new pizza place to try and another Gianni鈥檚聽location was one of the top rated. I figured it had been a few years and that it was about time to revisit.聽Without even knowing it, I got the same two slices (pepperoni and buffalo chicken) but this time was sorely underwhelmed by the outcome.

image

The pepperoni started off good enough. Light sauce, fluffy yet crispy crust, spicy pepperoni, it went down pretty well even if they skimped a little on the 鈥榬onis. On my way out I was still hungry and saw they had just pulled a buffalo chicken pie out of the oven (I arrived mere minutes after they opened so they get some slack) so I decided to give it a shot. The buffalo was pretty disappointing; the chicken was sloppy and mushy and there was nothing to balance the hotness of the buffalo sauce. It just kinda left you with this hot taste that didn鈥檛 even have a good flavor. The crust was the only redeeming factor, but I couldn鈥檛 even finish the rest of the slice. Overall, I was very disappointed from this experience and even though it ran me the same price as last time ($6) I would not recommend this location nearly as much as the Oakhurst one.

I went to Johnny鈥檚聽last summer after a trip to Fat Moose Comics and totally forgot to post a review. Whoops! Honestly though, you weren鈥檛 missing much. While the slice was big and had thin, crispy crust, it聽 was totally ruined by the amount of seasoning in the sauce. It totally overpowered everything else and if I hadn鈥檛 eaten it fresh, I鈥檓 pretty sure it would have been inedible. The plain was only $2.14, so if you鈥檙e in the area and really hankering for a slice stop in. Otherwise, pass it by.

Chelsea’s family regularly gets their pizza delivered from Florence聽and man is it good. That perfect blend of cheese and sauce after it’s been sitting for 5 minutes. A+. This place is great, and they’re all super friendly too!!

Generally when I get takeout pizza with Chelsea鈥檚 family, we get it from Florence Pizzeria.聽However, one day not too long ago, I came home to a pie from Angelina鈥檚, a place in Hackensack I鈥檝e driven by but never tried. Unfortunately after this experience, I鈥檓 kinda glad I never did stop on my own. While the pizza wasn鈥檛 bad per se, it really had nothing great going for it either. The pepperoni pie was too saucy, the crust was dry and hard…you get the idea. The plain pie was better as it was noticeable cheesier, but still nothing special. I will say, the antipasto was great. Too bad that isn鈥檛 what I was going for. There鈥檚 definitely better in town, so don鈥檛 make this your first stop.

Paul mentioned Taverna Della to me a couple months back, saying they touted themselves as having sweet sauce on their pizza. Considering how much I love Guiseppe鈥檚 on Long Island, I knew I had to stop eventually. Spotswood is kinda in the middle of nowhere, but I found myself close enough to make the stop recently. I decided to go with my tried-and-true at Guiseppe鈥檚, a plain sweet sauce slice and a pepperoni sweet sauce slice and see how they compared.

image

Unfortunately, the sauce wasn鈥檛 quite聽as sweet as I鈥檝e grown accustomed to at other pizzerias, so I was a little disappointed by that. However, it was still some good sauce, especially on the plain. The cheese was also great. It tasted very fresh and had this dense consistency; nothing stringy here. The menu said something about them using fresh Wisconsin cheese, which I wasn鈥檛 expecting to be a big deal, but man it really did make a difference. The crust was pretty mediocre as were the pepperonis, though. While I definitely enjoyed the plain, the pepperonis gave my second slice this weird, over-seasoned taste that just didn鈥檛 work for me. Oh well. Both slices were under $6 total, so my suggestion is scope a plain and call it a day. They only really had聽鈥渞egular鈥 toppings, but honestly I would forego them altogether because based on the pepperoni, I feel like they might all just clash with the quality cheese and sauce flavors. Not worth going out of your way for, but pretty admirable for a聽鈥淐entral鈥 Jersey pizzeria.

After almost two years I finally found myself once again down the street from Brooklyn Boys聽and of course stopped in again. The plain slice once again killed it and what I鈥檓 pretty sure was a聽chicken bacon BBQ ranch was equally good. Tons of toppings that gave the slice a great blend of flavors. Some some of my most highly recommended聽鈥淐entral鈥 Jersey pizza.

I was hankering for some Lobster Roll recently, so Chelsea and I decided to check out U Pie& Lobster Co.聽really good seafood is kind of scarce in North Jersey and this place seemed like it had potential, so we made the drive to check it out. First off, the parking was absolutely atrocious. Was the food worth it? Only partially. I stuck with my Lobster Roll while Chelsea sampled some of their pizza with a margherita personal pie. Some of the other toppings were a little more unique (click here for a menu), but Chelsea wanted to keep it classic. While it was very fresh and everything had a pretty food flavor, there was just too much sauce and basil and in my opinion it just made it overly seasoned. The Lobster Roll also had an exceptional buttery flavor, but was pretty small and not at all filling. This wouldn鈥檛 have been such a big deal if the food wasn鈥檛 as expensive as it was. I get that seafood can be pricey, but charging $20 for a small Lobster Roll with no sides or anything is a little ridiculous. All-in-all, good food, but not worth the price. At least the owner was friendly!

I was in Manville for the first time recently and so naturally I checked out the highest rated pizzeria on Google; Manville Pizza. They had a lot of interesting options out that I was torn between, but eventually I settled on a chicken bacon ranch and a sesame chicken, because how often do you see sesame chicken pizza? I鈥檓 often leery of pizza from South or聽鈥淐entral鈥 Jersey, but Manville Pizza聽blew away my expectations. The sauces all had exceptional flavor without being overbearing and the crust was firm but crispy. My only gripe is that they skimped pretty hard on the meat toppings, but the flavor more than made up for it. I left feeling full and satisfied, but not feeling like I had to force down half of my second slice. Manville is in a pretty random, out of the way area, but if you ever find yourself heading south on 206 to South Jersey, take the 5 minute detour to check this place. for $3.25 a slice you won鈥檛 be disappointed.

I took the train into Penn Station last week to see The Smashing Pumpkins at Madison Square Garden with full intentions of running outside to grab a slice pre-show. I was planning to make a third stop to NY Pizza Suprema, but the line was out the door and down the street. I almost went to Taco Bell, but decided to try out Famous Amadeus聽across the street. I should鈥檝e gone to Taco Bell, because this pizza was absolute trash. I spent $4.65 on this buffalo chicken slice that was floppy and mushy with zero crisp and TOMATO SAUCE ON IT. I was able to finish the whole thing but maybe that鈥檚 only because I was starving. The buffalo sauce did have a good flavor, but it didn鈥檛 make it worth the cost. Never again.

P.S. The Smashing Pumpkins weren鈥檛 very good either.

I鈥檝e been going to Wyckoff the past few months for Pokemon Community Day and was starving after one of my trips. Naturally, I stopped to try some of the local pizza. I passed by聽Rosario鈥檚 hoping for a good slice to curb my hunger but was sadly disappointed. First off, there were absolutely ZERO options. The pizza counter had a single plain pie out, some severely overpriced garlic knots, and that鈥檚 it. It was more of a sit down dinner place, but still…….give me something. Especially when you鈥檙e charging $2.67 for a plain slice that isn鈥檛 even that good. The cheesiness of the slice would have worked for me if the sauce underneath wasn鈥檛 so mediocre. This place gets a hard pass from me. Save your money and go elsewhere.
