tomato sauce was a bit too much, still superfresh and delish!

Finally made the drive to try De Lorenzo’s and it was definitely worth the drive and the wait. Absolutely delicious pie that starts with a perfect thin but very tasty crust with some great bubbles. The sauce to cheese ratio was just right with fresh quality ingredients for both. No flop, outstanding flavor. One of the best pies I’ve ever tasted.

Okay here’s the deal…out of all the pizza places I tried so far, Ralph’s in Nutley was my gold standard. But because I ate Chinese food at Kuo next door to delorenzos and slice managed to eat a slice and a half on a full stomach, and savor the quality of the ingredients I will have to go rookie score of 9.0. I can’t give .2 higher than Ralph’s (an 8.9) so to be fair, .1 higher is the verdict.

Ordered a large tomato pie. On the thinner side which is good, don’t feel gross after eating and tastes very good. Also got a small garlic and sausage based on reviews. Highly recommend that as well.

Really solid tomato pie - love the flavors especially the tomato. Great tasting & perfectly cooked dough but found the crust slightly overdone for my taste.

As soon as we pulled up here, I could see a large group of people waiting to be seated near the door. Which is slightly annoying when you're on a pizza trip and plan on going to as many places as possible, it's also a very good sign! Delorenzo's is probably the most famous of all the tomato pie spots and for good reason! It's been around for over 70 years but our waiter said this location actually opened in 2007. Very nice modern interior with a large dining area which would be hard to fill if they didn't have such dedicated customers. The pizza itself is a thin crust without a lot of chew and is relatively firm, but has a legit 10/10 crisp! They use crushed tomatoes and they are large chunks of it throughout the pizza which I enjoy but I could see some people seeing as a turnoff. I got my usual half pepperoni half cheese and the pepperoni was unique as well. As it was small in diameter hand cut pepperonis that were much thicker than the ones that typically come on a pizza. This gave the pepperoni side a much stronger pepperoni flavor then most. Our waiter actually had mentioned that while they were happy with Dave's review they actually wanted him to come back and do it again, as his pizza had been sitting on the counter over a half hour when he arrived. Are we our waiter and said that the general opinion amongst staff was that he would go at least a couple points higher if it were fresh!

The Crisp is what this is all about. Thin, light and delicious. Mama Mia true Italian flavor.

Established in 1947 but located in Robbinsville only for about a decade, De Lorenzo’s serves classic, old school, thin crust, New Haven style tomato pies. This is a battle of texture vs taste. The dough is extremely thin, super firm, almost a little too cardboardish, plenty of crisp and outrageously crunchy throughout. The crust is actually charred perfection, very tasty, easily the star of the pie. You’ll notice the unconventional & irregular New Haven style slicing of the pizza, similar to Sally’s Apizza, rare for Jersey pies. Disappointingly, the other ingredients fall a little short, like the cheese, which is scattered scantly, melty and creamy in some spots, hard and rigid in other areas, could definitely use more coverage. Now to the crux of the pizza, the tomatoes. They do not use sauce, just crushed canned tomatoes with a pinch of salt, very simple and basic. No spices, no garlic or onions, just the sweetness of the tomatoes to carry the flavor of the pie, which in my estimation just isn’t enough. I respect the history of this establishment and it’s worth trying if you’ve never had this particular style, but I find it to be a bit overrated. I prefer taste over texture, so I’ll take a softer pie bursting with flavorful sauce as opposed to this mega crispy, bland pizza, lacking in taste.

Great pie, but not a 9 level IMO. As close as can be, so 8.9 it is. Would definitely recommend if you’re in the area.

We drove 45 minutes to eat it. I wouldn’t eat it again if it was 10 minutes away. It was bland. Could have used more cheese. I’m not a fan of chunky sauce.

Pizza is very photogenic. It’s like meeting your dream girl then gong to eat her and find out she tastes like a burnt clutch.
