Nomad Pizza Company
Where we've featured it
There are a few things New Jersey has in relatively short supply, like major sports teams, transparent politicians, and great Neapolitan-style pizza. One noteworthy exception to the latter is Nomad Pizza. What started as a catering operation out of a restored 1949 REO Speedwagon has expanded to include two full-time spots in Jersey and one in Philly. The pies at the original location in Hopewell are essentially personal pies, but while each slice only takes about four bites to get through, every bite offers a completely different experience. The weight of oil and cheese makes the paper-thin tip taste like bread that’s been luxuriating in rich soup, while the middle highlights the toppings, like crispy guanciale with fig jam, as well as basil and herbs from its garden outside. The best part, though, is the puffy crust, which is like a lifeguard ring of sweet and salty dough that should be thrown to the anti-artisanal pizza crowd.
