    I recommend Santillo's pizza in Elizabeth NJ. It's just a mile from t I recommend Santillo's pizza in Elizabeth NJ. It's just a mile from the Bayway Diner in Linden, which was the first place Guy went to for Diners, Drive in's and Dives. They have been in business since 1918 and is now run by third generation grandson Al. Al is considered a pizza master by many who have enjoyed the delicious old world recipe which was handed down and is still made the same way. Their pizza oven is something to be seen. 15 feet long and about 10 feet wide and cranks out thousands of thin and Sicilian pies every month. Al is even old friends with Jay Leno, who btw, used to deliver for him back when he was first starting out. I grew up a block away and for 30 years it's the only pizza we ever ate. in fact, the phone number has not changed since I was a kid. In New Jersey, when the question is asked as to who has the best pizza, Santillo's is usually the answer. http://www.santillopizza.com/ http://newyork.seriouseats.com/2009/08/new-jersey-dispatch-santillos-brick-oven-pizza-elizabeth-nj.html http://www.urbanspoon.com/cities/53-north-jersey/restaurants/587618-santillo-s-brick-oven-pizza/menu If they are chosen, I'm just a few minutes away and can stop by during filming. I would be honored.

    Santillos pizza in Elizabeth NJ. Swear to god it's the best pizza eve Santillos pizza in Elizabeth NJ. Swear to god it's the best pizza ever. He's got an old Russian bread bakery converted into a pizza place in the 1960s. His pizza oars are like 15 ft long, the oven is one of a kind. The pizzas come out crispy and beautiful. My personal favorite is the Sicilian with meatballs and a seaseme seed crust, a little well done. Al santillo is a total character wit a stereotypical jersey accent. He's the kind if guy that invites you back into the kitchen to admire your pizza in the oven. Next time your in jersey you gotta check it out.

    One of a kind operation. No one has a more old-fashioned way of crea One of a kind operation. No one has a more old-fashioned way of creating a pizza. The operation is the same operation as the one used to make Italian bread 100 years ago except with the addition of toppings. The recipe is followed in every excruciating detail the way it was all those years ago. May not be the oldest pizza place in America but I believe it is the oldest operation.

    In Elizabeth N.J. where I grew up. I enjoyed the very best pizza ever In Elizabeth N.J. where I grew up. I enjoyed the very best pizza ever made. Fifty-six years later I have yet to taste any better. What Al Santillos original 100 year plus brick oven does to a pizza crust is indescribable. Not to mention he never compromises on the quality of the ingredients. It should be on the bucket list of any foodie. Santillo's pizza is a must.
