If you’ve ever heard that the best pizza comes from New Jersey, you’ve heard right. And some of the very best pizza in the state comes from the Jersey Shore. So, whether you’re lucky enough to live here year round or you’re just visiting, make sure to grab yourself a slice. Or maybe an entire pie, we don’t judge.
Porta, located in Asbury Park and Jersey City, is a versatile and delicious restaurant. You can have breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and amazing drinks here. And pizza is available for every one of these meals.
Red Bank’s Front St. Trattoria should definitely be another stop on your Jersey pizza tour. Their signature margherita pizza, a twist on the classic with an added sesame crust, is not to be missed.
Vic’s Bar & Italian Restaurant has been satisfying pizza cravings for almost seventy years. Head to Bradley Beach to get your thin crust fix. You will not be disappointed.
Just as its name suggests, The Coal House coal-fires each and every one of its pizzas to perfection. If you take a trip to Point Pleasant Beach to visit this pizza joint, we highly recommend the Pesto.
If you’re looking for a unique and tasty pizza experience, try a slice at Pazzo in Red Bank. Thinly sliced potatoes with truffle oil, black mission figs, and fresh clams are all fair game.
Pete & Elda’s in Neptune is a Jersey Shore pizza institution. A thin crust pie is amazing plain, or with whatever toppings you desire. Finish an XXL pie all by yourself and win a t-shirt and exclusive membership to the Whole Pie Eater’s Club.
Pizza is an obvious boardwalk staple food. The tomato pies at Maruca’s are a delicious step above regular pizzas. Make sure to snag one next time you find yourself in Seaside Heights.
At Talula’s in Asbury Park, the focus is placed on community, freshness, and, most importantly, good food. Our personal favorite is the Green Eggs & Ham, but you should go and pick a favorite for yourself.
We’re always in favor of wood-fired pizza, and Mossuto’s Market in Wall offers just that. Try one of their signature pizzas like the Zucca, a pie topped with zucchini, caramelized onions, ricotta salata, fresh mozzarella, basil, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
10. Mack’s Pizza
Mack’s Pizza, located on the Wildwood boardwalk, is a family favorite. It’s not just delicious boardwalk pizza; it’s delicious pizza. Stop here for a quick, cheap, and satisfying meal.

New York and New Jersey are both known for their high quality pizza, so it makes sense that this Jersey Shore pizza joint has a brother restaurant in Staten Island. Denino’s Pizzeria in Brick is a must-try.
For the Federicis, pizza is a family affair. Federici’s Restaurant & Pizza in Belmar is the family’s fourth delicious. The crispy thin crust pizza is renowned throughout the state, as is all of the other restaurant’s Italian food.
Pizzuto Ravioli & Macaroni in Eatontown is the perfect place to shop, eat, or just grab food and go. This deli and pizzeria has fresh, flavorful pizzas that are definitely worth trying. We recommend the Calabrese, with sausage, broccoli rabe, garlic, mozzarella, tomato sauce, and olive oil.
15. B2 Bistro + Bar
All of the plates at B2 Bistro + Bar in Red Bank are delicious and creative, but obviously we’re there for the pizza. Their wood burning oven churns out some seriously epic pizzas, with toppings like blood sausage, pea pesto, and homemade chimichurri.
16. Stella Marina
Pizza with an ocean view? Yes please. Stella Marina in Asbury Park provides exactly this, and the Italian comfort food makes it a Jersey Shore pizza. For a sweet pizza experience, try the Fig with dried figs, caramelized onion, and goat cheese.
Nino’s Coal Fired Pizza has locations in Toms River, Long Branch, and Brick. With such an extensive menu of tasty coal fired pizzas, you really can’t go wrong with any of them.
