Made a special trip to check out Pete Genovese‘s best Margherita pizza in Jersey. La Rustique Pizzeria, attached to Cafe La Rustique, cooks up brick oven pizza for takeout from an entrance around the corner (5th Street). Ordered one pie to go after my son’s fencing tournament in Jersey City the other day. Excellent crust (even out of the box and re-heated in the oven), fresh mozarella and an outstanding sauce with just the right acid-sweet balance. Have to try the Cafe food next time. But how could you come here and not order the pizza?
