    Best in Central NJ if you want a thin crust.

    The crust is so thin it bakes up like a cracker. The sauce is a good margherita blend. Not too much cheese or toppings just right. Even when you reheat it in the microwave the pizza is still crispy. It's expensive so it's a rare treat.

    I have family in NJ and have had traditional pizza like that.
    While I love a good thick crust pizza thin crust done right can't be beat.
    It is SOOOOO YUMMY!

    I prefer a square from L&B Spumoni Gardens out in Brooklyn NY.

    I don't think $12.95 for a large pizza is that expensive but you may be talking about something I didn't see on the menu.

    I do think $3.95 per topping on the large is a bit much, and I usually just get a cheese pizza, but getting the 'works' could add up fast.

    Abeetz!

    Federicis is good and I go there a bit, but I feel that Pete and Eldas in Neptune is just a little better and worth the trip. Try to go for the t-shirt pie

    With the thin crust, I could easily eat a large pie by myself

    Expensive??? :dunno:

    Lookin' at the menu, that's average even a bargain if it's as good as ya say it is.

    Edit:

    I didn't see that charge "per topping". I guess it could add up quite rapidly.

    The thin crust isn't as filling, as Officer X said one person can eat a whole large pie. We average 1 pie for 1.5 people. Then you figure in the 25 min drive and so on and it adds up. Compare that to a local pie for 10 dollars that feeds 3 people. Then you figure it's 4 dollars for a mushroom pizza, then more for onions and peppers, whereas other places are a buck and a half per topping.


    The only thing I like better is La Rosa ribs, but those prices are way high, I prefer to cook my own since I can feed 3 people for the same price you pay to feed 1 person there.

    NJ is a great place to live if you like food. All the different ethnicities clustered together make for a good experience. A buddy of mine from Cali was stationed at Dix and couldn't believe what you could order and have delivered to the base. He gained 5 pounds in the two weeks he was there waiting for out processing.

    There is a local joint that does to die for chicken parmigiana. I mean this stuff is so tender you can cut it with a plastic fork. The pasta is perfectly al dente and for 22 bucks you get 2 salads, a loaf of good fresh Italian bread, and enough chicken and pasta for four people.


    BTW Officer X, Neptune is quite north of me, at least 45 mins to get there and my max in a car is 20-30 mins anymore. I haven't been to the beach in a while because of that, which drives me nuts. I'd love to give it a try, but it's not likely.
