There are countless aspects of Point Pleasant, New Jersey that make us to want to come back every year. Maybe it’s the thrilling boardwalk rides or the fun but fierce games of mini golf. Wait, scratch that–it’s enjoying time with family and friends on the Jersey shore, while chomping on delicious thin crust pizza at Joey Tomatoes.

Joey Tomatoes is located in a charming yellow building and is the mix between a sports bar and your neighborhood pizzeria. With pies made to order or slices ready to hit the beach, Joey’s gives you plenty of ways to enjoy their always fresh pies. One of the main reasons why we return to Joey’s every time we’re at the shore is simply their exceptional service. You are welcomed with a smile and served by some of the nicest people on the boardwalk. The passion the cooks have for their pizza is endearing and it shows in how delicious each pie tastes when it comes out of the oven straight to your table. Whether you enjoy tons of toppings or prefer just cheese and basil, Joey Tomatoes knows how to bring New York-style pizza to one of New Jersey’s favorite beaches.

In the real estate world, location is everything, and Joey Tomatoes is perfectly situated on the Boardwalk adjacent to video arcades and fun houses. If you want to work up an appetite, challenge your family and friends to a pirate-themed mini golf course located ON TOP of the restaurant. This little perk makes Joey’s even more charming and keeps the kids entertained while you wait for your pizza to arrive.

The only real downside we see in Joey Tomatoes is that it is expensive. A pie will cost you 21 dollars, assuming you want plain cheese. However, we manage to work our way around it because when it comes to authentic New York pizza with a view of the Atlantic Ocean, Joey’s really can’t be beat.

Make sure to check out Joey Tomatoes at 300 Ocean Avenue in Point Pleasant, NJ.

The Most Patriotic Pie on the Planet – We The Pizza

We The Pizza, Washington DC

While on a trip to Washington D.C. to explore the rich history and majestic monuments the city has to offer, my friends and I came across a little pizza place serving up pies worthy for a President. This is no Papa John’s. This is We the Pizza.

The restaurant has a unique style that puts a twist on the classic Brooklyn style pizzeria. The white and black furniture contrasts the splashes of red on the walls, making for a fun and vibrant place to enjoy a divine slice of Sicilian with a great view of the Capitol Rotunda.

We the Pizza is located a few blocks away from the hustling political headquarters that is the National Mall. A seven minute walk at most, it is nestled among bakeries and coffee houses and begs you to enter with its enticing aroma of a fresh Margherita pie steaming in the oven. We the Pizza offers slices ranging from the traditional to the unconventional, with toppings like jalapeños and bananas. Every slice is served sizzling from the huge oven that dominates the bottom floor of the restaurant. We the Pizza offers outdoor seating where businessmen and people-watchers alike can stop by to get a sense of life in downtown D.C.

Next time you find yourself visiting the nation’s capital, We the Pizza is a spot you don’t want to miss!

We the Pizza is located on 305 SW Pennsylvania Avenue right off of Capitol Hill.
