Welcome to Maruca's Tomato Pies!

Best pizza on the Jersey Shore since 1950.

Adam Richman came to the boardwalk in Seaside Park, NJ to the one and only Maruca's Tomato Pies. This is when Adam got to taste first hand our Trenton-style tomato pies with Maruca’s signature swirl. What exactly is Trenton style pie? In 1910 a Trenton, New Jersey pizza maker put the cheese on the bottom and sauce on top. As Adam explains, this gives the pie a buttery taste from the Maruca's special cheese blend. A fresh Jersey tomato sauce on top give the Maruca's Tomato pies their signature swirl.

About Us

There’s a famous saying along the Jersey shore, “Avacation just isn’t a vacation without a pizza at Maruca’s.”

With their trademark cheese and sauce swirls, Maruca’s Tomato Pies have always stood apart from ordinary, average neighborhood pizzas. For over 65 years the Maruca Family has consistently produced an instantly recognizable classic old-world flavor that has made their incredibly popular tomato pie a true boardwalk legend. It all started back in 1950 in Trenton, NJ where four brothers – Anthony, Pasquale, Joseph, and Dominick Maruca – realized after their father’s untimely death there was no real future in working the coal mines as he had for so many years. They wanted to create a business with a real future, but little did they know just how successful they would be in standing the test of time. The Maruca family decided to turn their love of food into a business, and with Anthony’s leadership and guidance soon opened their first family-run pizza shop in their hometown. Later that same year family opened the first of many successful pizza shops at the Jersey shore on the famous Seaside boardwalk. This began an unprecedented run of extraordinary popularity that continues to this very day. In a marketplace where there sometimes seems to be a new pizza shop popping up on every corner, Maruca’s Tomato Pies has thrived by consistently being "the Best on the Boards." Although the locations have changed many times throughout the decades that followed, the Maruca family still remains completely dedicated to providing the very best pizza to their ever-growing legion of loyal customers. Maruca’s Tomato Pies has achieved such widespread popularity that people often speak of spending their winters dreaming of summer vacations, on the Jersey Shore, filled with that mouth-watering trademark taste that Maruca’s Tomato Pies has continually delivered since 1950.
