We love pizza in our house. For every person in our house there is a different opinion of who makes the best pizza, which is why we sometimes try new places. We also try different places if we have introductory specials. Recently I learned about a new place a couple of miles from us called Varriale’s. I found a coupon for them in the mail so we decided to try them.

I ordered two cheese pies for pickup. The pizzas were ready when I arrived twenty minutes later, as promised. The man behind the counter was very friendly. We chatted for a few minutes and he told me his hours. I asked him about one of the items I saw, the bruschetta bread pictured below, and he offered me one on the house to try. I took everything home. We all enjoyed the pizza very much. The crust was not too thick and was very soft.  The pizza sauce was flavorful and had a good ratio of sauce and cheese. This will sound strange but the pizza had just the right amount of grease, meaning there wasn’t so much that it leaked through the box and made the pizza limp and not so little that the pizza was dry and tasteless. Best of all, the bottom of the pizza wasn’t burnt. (We hate that.)  We’ve put the Varriale’s menu in our drawer and will definitely be ordering from them again.

Varriale’s Pizza & Restaurant offers eat in or take out seven days a week. Their menu offers a wide assortment of things including pies, calzones and strombolis, hot and cold subs, appetizers and baked dishes. They are located on Cedarbridge Road in Brick, NJ. Free delivery is available to certain areas.

My favs still remain PJ’s (Brick), Frank;s (Lakewood), and Cappone’s Toms River definitely NOT Brick (different francise).

Mmmm…looks tasty. We love good pizza in our house, too. My wife makes homemade pizza sometimes and it’s to die for! I find that the “MOM & POP” type pizza places generally make better pizza’s then that of the big chains. Actually, the same could be said for restaurants as well.
