DeLorenzo’s Tomato Pies (Robbinsville)
Sad to say, the quirky, original Hudson Street location is gone, but what many consider the ultimate Trenton pie lives on in the ’burbs. Same crisp crust, same signature structure—cheese and toppings go on first, then crushed tomatoes. Same no-reservations policy. But progress! Unlike Hudson Street, Robbinsville has salads, antipasti—even restrooms. 2350 Route 33, 609-341-8480, delorenzostomatopies.com—PT

Donna Pizza Center (Palisades Park)
The crust is crisp, the toppings fresh, the tomatoes simmered on site. “I have a passion for making pizza,” says owner Matteo Testino, who hails from Bari and has relied on the same mozzarella supplier since opening in 1965. All pies are 16 inches ($14.95 regular, $19.75 Sicilian). Ask for it well-done, light on the sauce, and you’ll be back. 404 Broad Ave, 201-944-2158—MACF

Osteria Procaccini (Kingston, Pennington)
Brothers John and Tino Procaccini, veterans of the Princeton-area dining scene, found their niche with 12-inch artisanal pizzas ($10-$16) baked in terra cotta ovens imported from Modena. Panini ($8), salads ($4 -$11) and antipasti such as the $11 salumi platter are good, too. Kingston is small and BYO. Pennington has 75 seats and a wine bar ($3-$7 a glass). Even there, you might wait 40 minutes at peak times. 4428 Rt 27, Kingston, 609-688-0007; 7 Tree Farm Rd (Rt 31), Pennington, 609-303-0625; osteriaprocaccini.com—PT
