Garlick-y White Pizza- 'Jersey Style!

maracuya61 | Jul 26, 2010 03:36 PM

Anyone of a *certain age* who resided in central New Jersey (between Princeton and New Brunswick) may have also enjoyed an awesome white pizza who's recipe I am dying to recover today. When I was in grad school at Rutgers in the mid 80’s, my major professor would occasionally take the lab out for a celebratory white pizza at a simple Italian place called Theresa’s (I think). It was just a cheese and garlic orgy. And one you never wanted to end. We didn’t go often as the boss's wife would throw him out of the house after he also enjoyed the garlicky goodness- She claimed he oozed garlic from every pore. Now THAT’S a great pizza!

Anyone know of this place (probably long gone- all the good ones usually are!) and know how to re-create that white pizza? There was only cheese, olive oil, garlic, oregano and think crust…Nothing like grilled veggies or chicken on top. Just pure lactose!

Help me out with either your fond memories and the name of the place and/or a recipe!
