Top Pizza Restaurants in Clifton, NJ Near You

Keep Local Thriving. Every order on Slice supports small, local shops, their families, and the community.

When a Dutch settler purchased the land rights to the eleven thousand acres where Clifton was founded in the 17th century, he probably never imagined the city would grow to the size it has. Bordered by the Passaic River, Clifton's location was to prove ideal for industrialization although that didn't happen until the early 1900s and the onset of the American Industrial Revolution. In the interim years, Clifton and the surrounding area were farmed and the community survived by selling their surplus produce at market in nearby cities. Factories began to appear on Clifton's landscape from the beginning of the 20th century and they're what started the city's evolution from small town to city. The opening of steel, textile, and paper mills brought a flood of migrant workers of European origin to Clifton. It was the Italians among those new settlers that introduced pizza to the folks of Clifton and it's been a popular go-to meal ever since.

The best pizza in Clifton: a local guide

A new type of pizza was hitting the food news headlines during the time the pizzerias in Clifton were in the process of opening and getting established. Back then the pizza chefs of the city decided to go with the flow and ride the wave of this pie's popularity, so Clifton is known for New York-style pizza. These days it's not the only type of pizza you'll find in Clifton as many pizzerias now bake more traditional Italian pizzas like thick crust and Sicilian-style which means customers get the best of both worlds. What made New York-style pizza so different when it was first introduced at the beginning of the 20th century was its super thin base and exaggerated size. The basic ingredients it’s made from are exactly the same as any other pizza and consist of no more than flour, a raising agent like yeast or baking soda, tomato sauce, and cheese.
