It came up the other day after I was reporting on the Jersey Shore Pizza War. Of course, I started thinking about how many great pizza places there are across the Garden State.

We had so many people respond that the list had to be broken down into regions. My thought was to go old school and divide the list between East and West which I think is a better representation of the cultural differences across our state.
