Cracker thin. There’s better around here like Galley and Vic’s:

Portnoy is nuts...I’ve been doing 🍕piZZa 🍕reviews and creating ratings before he was out of diapers 🍼 This place is an 8.0, and actually, I have it a tad bit higher at an 8.02391~~~and bTw Dave, the average after 137 reviews is an 8.0 AND you can have a rating end in a .0 AND if you were serious about what you are doing, you’d break these down even further, by numbers and description. Now as for Carmen’s Pizza, yes, it’s “very good” as Portnoy typically states then goes on to rate everything that’s very good anywhere between a 6.3 and 7.8. This one is AN 8.0. It’s better than good but not the best and is accurately described by 2/3’s of the pizza eaters that gave it between a 7.2 and 8.3. Dave knows it (that it’s an 8 oh’er) but is falling prey to his own rookie rating bullshit. I personally was expecting more and love this style pizza, and I did “like it a lot”(another Dave classic non-description) but it left me happy and sad. I thought I’d have the best ever bar pie based off many years (pre-Portnoy) of hype about “Pete & Elda’s pizza”....So....Pete & Elda got a really cool place there. They serve great tasting pizza pie(crust does lack though for sure—-read all the ratings),but is it their Pie-or Carmen’s?

The best there is the best there was the best there ever will be!!! Grew up on this pizza and am still looking for something better!!!

Have been going to Pete & Eldas for years (I even have the Whole Pie Eater Challenge T-Shirt, not like the jersey shore pizza challenges). But realized I haven’t scored the joint yet. I personally prefer Federicis in Freehold but still a great bar pie. Sauce is my favorite part of the pie. Cracker style crust is a bit lackluster.

Paper thin bar-style pizza. Crispy. Decent flavor. You can easily eat an entire pie, especially the XXL size (which gets you a free shirt).

Definitely a great thin slice like no other I have had before. Loved the sauce and cheese distribution as well, but I would have liked it just a tad thicker.

This reminded me of a cheese quesadilla unfortunately not a great thin pizza. Dough is crackerlike which I love but everything else is lack luster

Thin, crispy cracker crust is a jewel of the Jersey shore. An icon.

Thin crispy crust, but similar to a cracker. Everything needs a little more flavor

Very thin crust, flaky and cracker like. Not much flavor with the sauce and light on the cheese.

Solid thing crust pizza. Eat as soon as you get it. Doesn’t travel well.

Classic pie. Reminds me of federicis with less grease... extra points for owner who hooked it up with free wings!

Unique flavor in the sauce. This pizza is striving for greatness. I can taste the effort. But I feel it veers towards average for my tastes
