The Daily Meal has released its list of America’s 56 Greatest Old-School Pizzerias, and New Jersey is well represented on the list.

Here are the pizzerias that made the list:

Benny Tudino's in Hoboken

Conte's in Princeton

Papa's Tomato Pies in Robbinsville

Patsy's Tavern in Paterson

Pizza Town USA in Elmwood Park

Reservoir Tavern in Boonton

Rome Pizza in Dunellen

Santillo's Brick Oven Pizza in Elizabeth

Spirito's Restaurant in Elizabeth

Star Tavern in Orange

Vic's Italian Restaurant in Bradley Beach

How was the list compiled? The Daily Meal had this to say, “In order to be considered a great old-school pizzeria, the pizza itself needs to be just one part of the overall experience. A classic old-school pizzeria has a comfortable, lived-in feel, whether it's been around for decades or not."
