Jersey’s best frozen pizza when you can’t make it to a pizzeria
We all agree that New Jersey has the best pizza in the world, bar none. It’s so good that the first subject of New Jersey 101.5 was “Where’s the best pizza in New Jersey?” To this day, when I ask this question, it enlightens phones because there are so many great choices.
But what about frozen pizza?
I know what you are thinking, “Why the hell would you buy a frozen pizza with all the great choices New Jersey has to offer?” Sometimes you just can’t get there and sometimes, believe it or not, people are just in the mood for a particular frozen pizza. I’m as shocked as you are, but some of them are really good.
One of those frozen pizzas that tops my list is Pizza Hall of Liberty in Lambertville. This pizza is so good that owner Chris Bryan has helped people weather the pandemic by donating 1,820 frozen pies to the Delaware Valley Food Pantry, Fisherman’s Mark and the Flemington area pantry.
Here are some other frozen pizzas that have been chosen by my listeners and social networks;
Nick Palumbo father:
“Ellios. Reminds me of the high school cafeteria on Fridays.”
Trev: My 14 year old twins love it. Still in our freezer.
Brian DJwheels Nelson:
“It’s in Turin.”
“I have always preferred ‘Tree Tavern. ‘”
“I mean, if you order from Lou Malnati it’s the best but you have to pay the price.”
“It’s Newman’s Own and it’s not close.”
Denise DeHaut Brown:
“Mordici’s frozen pizza bagels at Costco.”
“Mac’s Pizza on the boardwalk in Wildwood. Buy the half-baked pies before they close and fill the freezer. They come perfectly out of your home oven.”
“I love 7-Eleven Pizza and I say it so proudly!”
“Years ago in Verona they had a store called Celentano’s … their frozen pizza was the best and their dumplings were homemade.”
“Wegmans. Trust me.”
“Trader Joes pesto pizza.”
“More than very, very few options for plain cheese and the brands aren’t that good. Everyone wants to make crazy-crazy pizza (4 cheeses, 5 cheeses, etc.). I guess people in eat but I prefer a good kind. The one I buy is Red Baron. “
“California Pizza Kitchen and their cauliflower crust!”
“Believe it or not, the Shopright brand is pretty good.”
