Papa's is the oldest continuously operating pizzeria in America, so there's that. But what really makes Papa's so damn good is its tomato pies, a pizza style straight out of Trenton. Sort of like inside-out pizza, the thin-crust pies are topped first with a light layer of cheese, then a solid amount of sauce, which gets all caramelized and sweet while it cooks. The restaurant first opened in 1912, and if it looks a little bit modern, that's because it relocated from its original Trenton location to suburban Robbinsville in 2013.
