Looking for a pizza made with unique, local and high-quality ingredients? Try a pie at Jersey City’s Razza. The restaurant’s personal-sized pizzas are perfect for one, or good for sharing along with an appetizer or salad. I’ve dined there twice and tried two of their frequently changing specials: gnocchi with pork and a sausage-and-mushroom topped pizza.

Ever start to get a little hungry after a few drinks? Lulu’s in Greenpoint understands this phenomenon and offers a free personal pizza with each drink (more than $3) you order. Pizzas come plain, but toppings only cost a dollar extra.

This past Friday, I went to a going away party at the popular pizza joint in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Roberta’s. The place doesn’t take reservations, so we spent some time chatting on the back patio while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive. I can’t speak for everyone, but I think most of us would have been content to spend the entire evening in the patio.
