I hate pizza! said no one ever, at least not in Jersey. Here, we looove our pies, whether it’s a weeknight delivery, post-game pizza party or (best of all) a family night out at a real-deal pizzeria—and that’s exactly what you’ll find at Izzy’s. The new pizza place at Edgewater’s City Place at the Promenade is all about bringing back the old Brooklyn-style pizzeria that served as neighborhood hangout, family gathering place and social center.
Oh, and then there’s the actual pizza. The place is about as real-deal as it gets, utilizing San Marzano tomatoes from Italy, Caputo 00 flour, and fresh, thoughtfully sourced toppings for the Neapolitan-style pies that get baked in Izzy’s wood-burning oven and come out with that perfect light and chewy crust. You can keep it traditional with a Margherita or Marinara pie or go for one of the more gourmet creations, like the Izzy’s (so popular they gave it their name) topped with fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, prosciutto, arugula and a ridiculously good truffle cream.
Add to that extras like salads, old-school handmade meatballs, desserts whipped up in-house, a BYO policy and city views, and you’ve got your fall family dinner go-to. Sure, the kids still won’t tell you what they did all day at school, but at least you can all discuss the amazing pies.
