If there’s something NY and NJ are known for, it’s having the best pizza. Thankfully, we have a bunch of spots in the area that have some interesting pizza pies that stray from the traditional cheese or pepperoni pies. Celebrate National Pizza Pie Day with one of these pies!
135 Newark Ave, Jersey City
Porta has a menu with a bunch of unique pies. A crowd favorite is the Carbonara pie, which comes with guanciale, Parmigiano Reggiano, roasted egg, parsley, black pepper, and extra virgin olive oil. The egg is what makes this pizza stand out, and it adds a unique flavor to create a delicious pie. Make this your go-to for your brunch plans!
Looking for a vegan option while you’re at Porta? Their Snawzeech pie is incredible! It includes San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, cashew ricotta, broccoli rabe, vegan sausage, crushed red pepper, and extra virgin olive oil. The cashew ricotta is nice and creamy, and the vegan sausage adds a nice touch to a vegan pizza pie in the city.
