Delorenzos Tomato Pies - Robbinsville, NJ

After a hellish work week, and an even more hellish weekend on the horizon having to work, what better way to usher in a “non-weekend” than by going to Delorenzo’s Tomato Pies on Route 33 in Robbinsville, located in the new Washington Towne Center.  Sure, we’ve been to Delorenzo’s a million times, but it is always worth a mention for our new readers, as they might be missing out on one of NJ’s best pizza joints!  This is their newer location, run by Sammy Amico, son of Hudson Street’s owner Gary Amico.  We waited about 5 minutes for a table and were seated.  Tony was our server, and as always, his service is stupendous.  He’s a good kid, and a heck of a great server.
We started out with the antipasto salad that we absolutely love!  Today, this came with salami, prosciutto, meat and cheese stuffed peppers, roasted red peppers, crunchy breadsticks, artichokes, cheese, fresh mozzarella, and I am sure that there is some other deliciousness that I am missing as well.  Regardless, this is always a great starter, and a really nice snack while waiting for the world famous pie to come out of the oven.
On the pie front, we went with our usual:  a large sweet pepper, with half sausage.  This came out quick, with the typical crispy crush, and delicious sauce.  You really have no idea how good this pie is until you try it.  The sweet red and green peppers are always fresh and crisp, and when you pair this with the sausage, you get heaven on a crust!  For the first time in a long time, I was starving, and even managed to finish my entire half, while Zelda left two pieces that I ate cold for breakfast the following morning.
In short, what is there to say other than awesome!  From the great service from Tony, to the best pie in New Jersey, it just doesn’t get much better than Delorenzo’s!  Cheers  -F. Scott
