1. Razza

Razza is SO goddamn good that even loyal pizza fans from New York city will pop over on the Path train just to get one of these pies.

They use only local ingredients, including housemade cheeses and specially-bred hazelnuts. Crusts are old-school Italian, AKA perfectly charred, chewy and made with passion.

3. Porta

Want some authentic Neapolitan pizza? This three-story restaurant includes one of the few rooftop spaces in the city and has delicious pizzas churning out of its wood-fired oven all day long.

4. John’s Pizzeria 

John’s of Times Square has been voted one of New York’s best pizzas because of its unique characteristics: all pizzas are made to order in one of their four coal-fired brick ovens, like a cast iron pan. The best news? They have a Jersey City location so you don’t have to hop on the PATH.

5. Roman Nose

Roman Nose is the delicious end product of Maria & Ruggero Fiore’s journey from a small farming village in the Lazio region of Italy (between Rome and Naples) to the heart of JC.

They make their own homemade mozzarella and pizza dough from scratch every day for the freshest Italian-style pizza possible. As for toppings? Choose from Prosciutto di Parma or basil pesto.

6. Paparazzi Pizza 

Paparazzi Pizza is the real deal – they bake every pie in their stone-fired oven. The  Hollywood-themed restaurant serves as a fun backdrop along with their seriously delicious pizza.

The low-key pizza joint does pizza by the slice or by the pie, and they also deliver. Always a great choice.

7. Carmine’s Pizza Factory 

Carmine’s is a great Italian family business. Dad Angelo makes the sauce that goes on every pie; and they make all their own dough in house. Thin-crust & Sicilian pies are available to eat in (grab a seat by the sidewalk) or takeaway.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the two sons’ crazy pizza tossing skills.
