Whenever I hear that a New Jersey pizzeria received a national (or, in this case, international) accolade, I immediately think it’s going to be Razza Pizza Artiginale in Jersey City. This time is no different.

This honor comes from 50 Top Pizza, an Italian guide to all things pizza, which named Razza the 11th best pizzeria in the world, and the second-best in the USA.

About Razza, 50 Top Pizza said:

Dan Richer is a visionary, at a young age he leaves Jersey City for Italy and falls in love with pizza and Italian cuisine. His pizzeria, Razza, quickly became a venue for quality, and today it is among the best pizzerias in the United States thanks to an always coherent project: the dough that comes with a very own identity, being very recognizable for the intensity of the taste, as well as for the selected and seasonal ingredients that are used for the toppings. You can only eat an excellent pizza here and if you decide to also try the meatballs, you will fall in love with it.

Last year, Razza ranked fourth in the US, and twenty-seventh in the world.

This most recent accolade isn’t even the first one this year from Top 50 Pizza; in June, they awarded Razza and its chef, Dan Richer, the Ferrarelle Award as their pizza maker of the year!

Razza has been on my “must-visit” list for a while, but every time I’m in Jersey City to visit my son, the restaurant is all booked up. I need to plan better.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
