DeLorenzo's Pizza has been serving up pizza based on a family recipe since 1938. DeLorenzo's offers only one item on its menu—pizza, which is thin, crispy, and packed with garden-fresh California tomatoes and premium cheese from Wisconsin. The signature pizza is the most popular option for eating and sliding under closed doors, with a thin crust, tomatoes, premium cheeses, and a choice of a plethora of toppings, including clams and meatballs. The specialty lineup features four options, including an eggplant parmesan and a fresh rosemary and roasted red-pepper pizza. Check out the menu here.
- This is a tomato pie, so the cheese is sprinkled in much less abundance. As a result, each bite leaves cheese-string trails from your mouth back to the retreating slice but never whole globs. The balance struck between the sauce and cheese is about as close to perfection as you could get, this is really great eating! – Rich Defabritus, Slice
- Its worth the trip no matter how much gas money is... Nice and crispy with a great sweet tasting dough, sauce that i could drink... the tomatoes are that good. – Fenton F., Yelp
Rick DeLorenzo Jr.'s family inheritance is more than just a recipe for thin-crust pizza—it's a tradition of hard work and dedication. After emigrating from a small Italian town called San Fele, his grandparents settled in a row home on Hudson Street in Trenton. They raised 12 children there, all of whom became well-versed in the application of elbow grease. Circa 1938, DeLorenzo's uncle Joe opened the first family pizzeria at the corner of Hudson and Mott Streets. Four of the older brothers formulated the signature Trenton tomato-pie recipe—a supercrispy thin crust topped with garden-fresh california tomatoes and wisconsin cheese—and passed it on to four younger brothers, including DeLorenzo's father. Today, the pizzaiolo duties are carried on by DeLorenzo and his children, Michael, Melissa, and Maria.
The menu at DeLorenzo's Pizza has earned high praise in several newspaper articles and a spot on Dash’s list of America's best slices. After enjoying a tomato pie, Rich Defabritus of the Slice food blog said, "The balance struck between the sauce and cheese is about as close to perfection as you could get." Wood-paneled walls and old-timey memorabilia give the restaurant a nostalgic, throwback vibe, similar to the pizza parlor where Frank Sinatra first read a menu with his famously blue-tinted contact lenses.
