Papa's Tomato Pies
Tomato Pies

Papa’s was established in 1912 by Giuseppe Papa (originally from Naples) on South Clinton Avenue in Trenton and is the oldest continuously operating pizzeria in the United States (Lombardi's opened in 1906 but closed for 10 years). Papa's is now owned by Joe Papa's grandson, Nick Azzaro, a third generation Italian-American. Azzaro has been making pizza for over fifty years and has worked for Papa's since he was 14. They are best known for their Tomato pies which are made in crust-cheese-sauce order. The sauce is canned crushed tomato with signature seasonings. Toppings are many but the highlight is the uneven application of the tomato sauce base that gives a generous sweetness to the best bites of a slice. The blistered crusts are crunchy and hold firm if eaten straight away. This is a historic destination that represents a unique pizza style from the dawn of the American pizza love story.
