We simply can't get enough pizza; it's by far the world's most favorite food. New Jersey's too; there are some 2,000 pizzerias in the Garden State, covering every conceivable corner. 

We've done lists of the best burger, best sub/hoagie shop, best dinerbest ice cream shop and best Italian restaurant in each county; we've even ranked all 21 counties by which have the best food.

Now it's time to give pizza its due, with the best pizzeria in each county. I've been to every one of the 21 named pizzerias; no one gets on this list because of Facebook likes or yelp rating. But this is just one person's opinion. Let the doughy debate begin. Note: The runners-up are in alphabetical order.

Atlantic: Brother's Pizza, Hammonton

"Atlantic City'' isn't automatically the answer to every best-food question about Atlantic County. For the county's best pizza, take a ramble down the White Horse Pike (Route 30) to Hammonton ("the blueberry capital of the world''). There are any number of regrettable strip mall pizzerias; Brother's is not one of them. Order the Old Fashioned Tomato Pie (in photo); it's one of the best of its kind, tart and tomatoey. 

Runners-up: Maurizio's, Hamilton; Tony's Baltimore Grill, Atlantic City.

Bergen: Kinchley's Tavern, Ramsey

This was an especially tough county to pick - so many worthy contenders! I'll give the slight edge to Kinchley's Tavern, open since 1957 and one of the state's thin-crust legends. It's a pizza roadhouse, with a cozy bar, spacious dining room, and model trains on display. Bring cash; no  credit cards accepted. High-quality ingredients, especially the sausage, and a tangy, distinctive sauce.   

Runners-upLido Restaurant, Hackensack; Vesta Wood-Fired Pizza, East Rutherford.

Burlington: Tacconelli's Pizzeria, Maple Shade

Tacconelli's is a Philly pizza legend; Giovanni Tacconelli built an oven with friends and started baking bread in the City of Brotherly Love in the 1920s. In 1946, he started making tomato pies. Tacconelli's opened a Moorestown location, moving to Maple Shade about four years ago. The  secret to great pizza? "The dough,'' says owner Vince Tacconelli, shown in the photo. "If you don't have good crust ...''

Runners-up: Palermo's, Bordentown Township; The Vault, Bordentown City.


Peter Genovese | NJ Advance Media for
Camden: Bricco Coal Fired Pizza, Westmont

This was the toughest county to pick, not the least because Camden had two of the ten finalists in our N.J.'s Best Pizzeria showdown. Originally, I had Angelo's Pizzeria in Haddonfield here, but owner Danny DiGiampietro has since re-located to Philly (although he hopes to re-open in New Jersey some day). So the nod goes to Bricco in Westmont (owner Vincent Barone in photo), with its excellent Neapolitan-style pizzas. 

Runner-upHoly Tomato, Blackwood.
