Experience Porta Pizza in Asbury Park
Porta Pizza is not your average eatery. In fact, this pizzeria makes all of their mozzarella and ricotta cheeses in-house, and their ovens were built by hand in Naples. Flour and tomatoes are also brought in from Italy to give each menu item a distinct, delicious flavor.
Not sure what to order? Try the vegan Robert Plant pie with San Marzano tomatoes, smoked eggplant, cashew ricotta, and fried capers. For meat lovers, Porta offers a yummy carbonara pizza with guanciale, Parmigiano Reggiano, black pepper, and a roasted egg.
