We were at a Super Bowl party years ago and were loudly bragging about Pete & Elda's in Neptune being the best pie in NJ when someone piped-up and said, "Have you been to Strawberry Pub?" No we hadn't and it's in Woodbridge, much closer to our home. Up to that point our A-list was short; Pete & Elda's and DiLorenzo's (on Hamilton) in Trenton. Many other good pies but not the top-tier.
So we tried Strawberry. It's a bar. Lots of HDTV's and there's always a unique pleasure watching your local team while being served one of your favorite foods (and brew). But the pie takes center stage here, even with Robbie Cano up.
Some pizza is about the sauce, some about the cheese or crust (or the lack thereof). Strawberry is a balance of these elements with a little toasted cornmeal slipping agent on the bottom (nice texture). If you haven't been, and love pizza, you must go. It was immediately in our top three after that first visit and has remained consistently good like forever it seems (hard to do).
