SPOTLIGHT: High Society Pizza

If there’s anything I feel knowledgeable enough to have an opinion on, it’s a slice of pizza. My credentials include working as a line cook for a pizzeria, coming in second place for a pizza eating contest, and being from New Jersey (totally legit reasons).

 Today I’m here to grade High Society Pizza. Find them on Thursdays at Civic Center Eats.

 First off, A+ for smell. They were the last truck on the row when I visited, and I could smell that cheesey, garlicky, greasy scent of pizza. I didn’t get the best view of their kitchen space, but I saw a pizza rack in the window which always gives me a familiar feeling of home.

 I went with plain cheese…and a side of cheese curds. I was a bit baffled at there being cheese curds on the menu, but I’m also not one to scoff at a crispy curd.

The wait wasn’t long, which is great because I was hungry, and wanted to relax as much as possible on my lunch break. The cheese curds were crispy and satisfying and look how many we got for $7!

On to the pizza. One of the least greasy slices I’ve come across. Cheese was still a bit bubbly coming out of the oven. Crust was firm, but flexible – it could hold the weight of the toppings, but also bend into a beautiful fold. Then an accidental cheese-pull with the first bite, perfection.

 Personally, I wanted there to be more grease and a bit thinner crust – yes, I’m being overly critical, but I can be, so there! But really, it’s a damn good slice and you should try it this week at Civic Center Eats.


Keith, the owner & chef behind High Society Pizza, promises delicious pizza made from high-quality ingredients to use in their handmade pizza dough. I had high expectations here.

Also on the menu, cheesesteaks, salads, and buffalo wings. Pretty extensive menu as far as food trucks go.
