We take our pizza seriously here in New Jersey.

Many old-school pizza aficionados turn their noses up at some of the outrageous toppings used on pizza.

And with good reason.  For instance, putting pineapple on a pizza is an abomination, and should never be allowed.

Sometimes, when you see what people are putting on their pizzas, you have to ask, when does a pizza stop being a pizza?

I've created a list of some of the more unusual pizzas available in New Jersey.

I'll leave it up to you to judge the merits of these pizzas.


Adrian's   200 Hackensack St Wood-Ridge

They have something they call, Breakfast Anytime Pizza that may as well be called a heart attack on dough.

Half Taylor Ham (or Pork Roll, whatever), half bacon, Jack and Cheddar cheese, and sunny-side-up eggs.

Papa's Tomato Pies  19 Robbinsville-Allentown Rd, Robbinsville

Back in the day, the Trenton area was well-known for their Tomato pies. They were  Pizzas without the cheese.  They were delicious.

These days, people are talking about a creation called Mustard Pies.

These pies have spicy brown mustard between the crust and cheese and it's topped with tomato, and any other topping you desire.

The result is a unique taste that's very good.

Carluccio's Coal Fired Pizza  1200 New Road, Northfield

Honey Glazed Chicken Cutlet Cooked in Homemade Honey Bualo Sauce, Topped with Mozzarella, Caramelized Onions & Blue Cheese Dressing.

The coal-fired oven makes a difference.  Come with an appetite.  Their pizza is very filling.
