The contest started out with 16 of the best rated pizza places in New Jersey.  They did it at the same time as the March Madness Sweet 16 in basketball.  If you know how that works.

Any way we made it to the final four.  Leaving Santillo's Pizza as the only one from North Jersey.  The other three places are all in South Jersey.

Make a long story short we should have won but we believe there was some funny business going on with the balloting.  It seems at present there is no way to prevent tampering with the vote count.

I suggest in the future when anyone votes they submit  selfie also. Then anyone can go to the voting site and look for duplicates and disqualify them. If someone has a better idea let me know?

The contest ran from March 25- April 1st 2016.

My grandfather,  Louie,  started making pizza in 1943.  Before that he made Italian Bread.  There was only one size, 14 inch and only made with sauce and cheese. Plain pizza.  The dough was made fresh from scratch daily.  It was called, "pizza con pomodori",  (pizza with tomatoes)

The only difference between then and now is that now we have much more variety.  The quality and the recipe are exactly the same.

A Santillo's , "red and white,"  pizza is on the cover of Feb edition of INSIDE JERSEY MAGAZINE.

The same picture is also in the center fold of the magazine..

Also, a slice of Santillo's pizza is featured on page 27 of the January 20, 2016 edition of the Star Ledger Newspaper.  In a story about the top 25 pizzas in the NJ Pizza Power Rankings.  We came in Number 2.  After having spent 18 months at Number 1.  We were moved due to the fact that according to the rules of the Power Rankings the contestants must be moved around.

Very proud of this great accomplishment.

Guy calls.  Can I pick up two pies in 20 or 30 minutes?   It is now  10:AM.   I want to take these on the plane with me back to California.  11:30 will be the soonest today.

Sorry I could not do it this early.  However I do have an early day Friday.  On Friday you get pizza as early as 10:30 AM.  Today is Monday.

All other early orders should be called in a day ahead of time.  We will try to accommodate.

Thanks  AL

A Week of Testimonials From Cape May, Paramus, Chatham, Westfield & Bridgewater

call 908-354-1887
Many of our friends and customers have reached out and asked us to take testimonials.
So as usual, we at Santillo's Brick Oven Pizza give the customers what they want.

Instead of simply posting written testimonials from near and far via email, we took it one step further and this week started recording videos of customers who have an extra minute when they pick up their orders to say a few words.

So without further a due, here are 5 customers who have traveled from:
  • Cape May (145 miles)
  • Paramus (30 miles)
  • Chatham 16 miles)
  • Westfield (10 miles)
  • Bridgewater (30 miles)
