Papa's Tomato Pies
The 12 Best Pizzerias in New Jersey
Papa’s is another of Jersey’s long-standing tomato pie joints. Established in 1912 and considered the oldest pizzeria in the country, Papa’s has another only-in-NJ claim to fame: it’s home to the mustard pie, which is just what it sounds like! Mustard is smeared on the dough followed by cheese and sauce on top. While it may sound outrageous, if you think about it hard enough and then try it, you’ll realize that one can never have too much tang on a pizza, especially if the tomato sauce has a touch of sweetness like it does here. Pizza lovers everywhere need to give this a chance, but if you’re not up for it, the thin crust tomato pie is a sure bet.
