New Jersey is known for its pizza. Although some other states may hate to admit it that best pizza in NY is NY pizza. Hey, New York.
Who doesn’t love a good slice of pizza. With that gooey, melted cheese dangling off of that fresh slice you just pulled from the box? Or maybe a tomato pie devoid of cheese? (nope, not me)
A team of Washington Post reporters compiled The Best Pizza in ny pizza mansfield . Region-by-Region and then mapped out the best of each regional best pizza in NY.
And South Jersey? Well represented.
How did the team of reporters put this list together?
“We analyzed 7.5 million Yelp reviews and developed a formula to identify the best regional pizza styles in each state. They wrote in the Aug. 31 story, where reporters looked at five regional styles . New York, Chicago, Detroit, New Haven and Neapolitan — to find, “the country’s best pizzas.”
Out of the more than 85,000 independent and small-chain restaurants reviewed, South Jersey had five pizza shops make the list for the state – three in Sicilian and two under the New York style category. Pete’s Pizza and Kate & Al’s Pizza, both at Columbus Market, and Gallery Pizza in Erial, made the cut under Best Sicilian, with Pete’s Pizza No. 1, Gallery coming in at 3 and Kate & Al’s sixth. And under the New York style category, Roma Pizza in Ocean City was tops in the region, while Scotto Pizza in Marlton was third.
“We created our own national directory of pizza styles by asking Yelp to search more than 85,000 independent and small-chain restaurants for reviews that mentioned 35 styles,” the article said. “We only considered pizzerias that had at least 25 reviews and where a substantial share mentioned the pizza style in question.”
Two pizza shops at the Columbus Market got a slice of the pie
