DeLorenzo’s serves serious tradition with their pizza — 68 years worth. It was launched in Trenton in 1947 by Southern Italian immigrant Alexander "Chick" De Lorenzo; today, Delorenzo’s tradition is upheld by his grandson Sam Amico at the new location in Robbinsville, opened in 2007 (the original was closed in 2012 when its stewards, Gary and Eileen Amico, retired).

DeLorenzo’s makes a clam pie, albeit with tomato sauce (New Haven pizza purists, beware!), but customers can add to small or large tomato pies by selecting from a range of toppings ($1.50 each) including anchovies, artichokes, basil, spinach, black olives, broccoli, garlic, hot peppers, mushrooms, onions, sausage, roasted peppers, sweet peppers, and pepperoni. We list these fastballs (as well as the $3 homemade meatball topping to make this curveball even more effective: this near-septuagenarian pizzeria serves a tuna tomato pie, too.

Foursquare Tips

  • Best pies in the northeast - hands down!
  • Voted Best Pizza in New Jersey in New Jersey Magazine. Also once NJ 101.5 radio station had everyone call in and was voted best in NJ as well. I must say I agree!
  • Everyone has their opinion about the pizza, but the hundreds of people checking in to DeLorenzo's can't be wrong about this gem. Order a tomato pie, load it up with sausage, peppers and onions.
  • I haven't had an erection in years, but after eating the pizza here it was back, and better then ever. The pizza there is magical and saved my sex life. Thanks DeLorenzo...you are my savior.
