Jersey really does love its pizza shops, that's just a plain fact.

We have so many amazing little mom-pop pizza shops that it can be overwhelming to decide where to get a slice from.

For example, you have Johnny G's in Silverton which has great pizza, and you've got Brooklyn Square in Toms River which is regularly called some of Ocean County's best.

And don't even get me started on boardwalk pizza.

With slices bigger than your torso, and so many options it can be a pretty heated debate deciding which shop is best.

Now, I'm not going to lie I'm a Philly native and although I don't think Philly pizza is nearly as good as what you get in Jersey, you can still get a good slice.

Especially if you swing by South Street and hit Lorenzos, which is arguably the most popular pizza shop in Philadelphia.

So, when I see a pizza shop from my old stomping grounds getting ready to expand to the Jersey Shore I'm pretty excited, to say the least.
