Reader's Digest just raves about all the delicious sauce on that pie. The recipe from that sauce was the actual one that belonged to the owner's grandmother.

Speaking of the owner, it's Pietro Grippo, and his story is an amazing and inspirational one, and you can read about it on the pizzeria's website.

We do want to take a minute to say that we have so many great local pizzerias in this great state, and while we could argue over who gets the title as the best, let's just celebrate and support our favorite and count our GardenState pizza blessings.
