Someone mentioned DiLorenzo's, this is a tomato only pie, which I hear is among the best, but I don't like just plain tomatoes. Yet another great pie is Tony's in Morris Plains. Finally Benny Tudino in Hoboken is one the biggest slices and also in my top 10.
Hey yes, we use to go to the Reservoir from Denville when we were kids.......everyone had to have their pies. Really, are they still there?

The Reservoir? Oh man! I used to go out to Parsippany for work every now and then and I always made it a point to stop there. Best pie in Morris County, hands down. Do they still serve that insanely good veal parm?

Well, I had to read this posting...........LOLOLOL
If he is still there ,which he was for decades........right on Main Street in Netcong.
When I lived in Denville we'd hear about his good pizza, sometimes someone would head up there. When I lived 5 min. from Carmines, we'd have his pizza every Thursday night, without fail.
Many times the families in Denville, Rockaway.....would go to Boonton to the Reservior also......That is when there were not too many choices in Pizza, but everyone seemed to enjoy theirs.

someone help me out here cuz if you call this good food ur nuts

i'm in the maplewood area

i need pizza that isn't paper thin, and hot dogs that have more ingredients than sumthin you buy on the corner
In Chicago you have to load up your hot dogs with all kinds of stuff to hide the taste and color. How much red dye #2 do you people put in there anyway?

We want to taste a real European style frankfurter all we need is mustard and maybe some sauerkraut.

As for that thing you people call Pizza, again you need to load it up with crap because no one ingredient is able to stand on it's own. you hide the poor quality under stuff.

Even New Jersey pizza is made fresh with high quality ingredients. and if we are in the mood for the thick crust there is always Sicilian pizza.
If we want something that taste like Chicago pizza we can go to Pizza Hut.

Not only are they still there, you still can't get a seat if you arrive after 5-5:30. That's ok, I usually had 3 Rolling Rocks prior to getting seated anyway. And there all the same pies. The tables, chairs, menus, everything looks from the 1960s. What a fantastic atmosphere and restaurant.

This is true (about the junk) a real pizza has Flour, water, salt, and MAYBE yeast. Pizza sauce is tomatos and salt. Notice I did not mention sugar or oil
