The best pizza in Bergen County? We don't want to start the Pizza Wars...not yet anyway.

To hear it from Gerard D. of Elmwood Park, New Jersey, Franks Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant in Saddle Brook takes the top honors for Bergen's best pizza.

"I was born and raised a few blocks from Arthur Avenue in the Bronx and I've lived in Jersey for 16 years and I've never tasted pizza anywhere that compares to Franks" explained Gerard. And so the retired insurance executive has been "bringing home a pie" almost every week since discovering Franks a few years ago.

Jerry and Elvira Gencarelli have been preparing authentic, homemade Italian food since they opened Franks more than 20 years ago. Using fresh, hand-picked ingredients, they approach each meal as if they're cooking for you in their home kitchen.

Franks is moderately priced and tends to be busy at lunch and dinner hours.They offer a number of specials, including free meals for kids on Wednesdays with the purchase of an adult entrée.

And yes, the pizza is incredibly popular and very good with a variety of toppings that make Franks well worth the trip.

Franks Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant is located at 189 Route 46 West, Wal-Mart Plaza, Saddle Brook, New Jersey.

If you're in a hurry, you may want to call ahead to 201-587-1979.
