Slice Pizza Blog




Slice is my favorite pizza blog. They started independent and then were purchase by Serious Eats. They feature full reviews, pictures, and pizza maps along with price and menu details. They also feature recipes and videos for making pizza. My favorite part of slice is the pizza maps, just put a location in and they will give you every local pizzeria.

Pizza Land




Any Soprano's fan has to try Pizza Land pizza. They are the pizzeria featured in the opening credits of the Soprano's. They have been a local landmark for over 45 years.
Al Pawlowicz has been making pizza at Pizzaland for a decade, starting off as an employee and then buying the place about five years ago from the original owner's son. Pizzaland dates back to 1965, when legend has it that Italian immigrant Frank DiPiazza won the squat brick building in a card game and promptly opened a pizzeria.
The unique style of pie that he developed endures, the recipes handed down from father to son. Frank DiPiazza passed away in 1991 and his son briefly ran the store before passing the store on to Pawlowicz.
The store is really small and most of the business is take out orders. Try them if you are ever in Arllington NJ.
