“You don’t have to go far to find better pizza. The plain pie at Antonio’s Brick Oven Pizza (453 Main St., Metuchen; 732-603-0008) boasts a nice burn around the edges even if the sauce is ordinary.“That’s a crust,” Wiener said. The deep-dish margherita is a tomatoey, crusty success. Superlatives came easily. Schneider made note of the “great tomatoes,” while Bruno singled out the ”great” crust. A top-20, maybe top-10, pie.”…….OCTOBER 2, 2009 NJ STAR LEDGER MUNCHMOBILE REVIEW
NJ.com 2010 Award of Excellence: Antonio’s Brick Oven Pizza, 453 Main St., Metuchen; (732) 603-0008. If there’s one shortcoming to Jersey pizza, it’s the lack of sauce. The deep-dish margherita at Antonio’s is a tomatoey, crusty success. There may be bigger names on the Middlesex County pizza map, but no one does a margherita better than Antonio’s.
Best pizza in Jersey and NYC? Forget those lame lists and listen to someone who knows his dough (2013): Antonio's Brick Oven Pizza, 453 Main St., Metuchen; (732) 603-0008. The Brainy Boro is smart to have a pizzeria like Antonio's in town. The deep-dish margherita - not deep-dish like Chicago, but deep enough - is a tomatoey, crusty winner.

101 Best Pizzas in America 2013 #86 Antonio's Brick Oven Pizza, Metuchen, N.J. (Capricciosa) To paraphrase The Star-Ledger's Peter Genovese (but flip the compliment), perhaps the only thing harder than making a best New York or New Haven list is making a best New Jersey pizza list. Genovese did an admirable job this year after Thrillist's 33 Best Pizzas in America included just two Jersey pizzerias (Razza in Jersey City and Conte's in Princeton), listing 16 great places he thought they missed (though Pete, there was no absence of Italians in Missouri). Among these notable pizzerias was Antonio’s Brick Oven Pizza in Metuchen, which serves a deep-dish margherita, "not deep-dish like Chicago, but deep enough," notes Genovese, "a tomatoey, crusty winner." The Daily Meal’s panel agreed, singling out the Capricciosa (prosciutto, capers, artichoke hearts, red onion, marinara, mozzarella, and oregano) among Antonio’s best pies.
