Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza Opens Fourth New Jersey Location

FAIR LAWN, NJ — Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, the South Florida-based concept that uses authentic coal-burning ovens to create “well done pizza,” opened its fourth New Jersey location in Fair Lawn April 7. The new restaurant, located at 16-31 Route 208 North in the Fair Lawn Promenade, is the company’s 45th location in the U.S.

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, which includes founder/CEO Anthony Bruno and NFL Hall of Fame legend Dan Marino among several equity partners, debuted its first New Jersey location January 2011 in Edison, followed by Clifton in September 2011 and Ramsey in December 2011. To celebrate the new restaurant’s opening, Marino visited the Fair Lawn location on April 9.

“New Jersey folks just can’t get enough of our well done pizza and Italian Soul Food,” said Bruno. “We look forward to bringing a convenient new location even closer to our Fair Lawn fans.”

Known for its high energy atmosphere and simple menu, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza uses 800-degree coal burning ovens to create a “well done” taste. With a focus on fresh ingredients and authentic recipes, Anthony’s signature menu includes traditional and specialty pizzas with dough made in-house daily and stretched to order; fresh coal-oven-roasted chicken wings marinated in a proprietary mix of olive oil, kosher salt, lemon juice and Italian seasonings; large homemade meatballs from a recipe passed down by Anthony’s grandmother; a classic Italian salad with original dressing; and Eggplant Marino (Dan’s favorite).

Hours of operation for the Fair Lawn location are 11:30 a.m. — 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:30 a.m. — 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. In addition to dining in, patrons can carry out by calling 201-796-2625. A full bar is available.
