If you own a pizzeria in New Jersey and you want it to be a hit, get a positive review from David Portnoy. If the Barstool Sports founder gives your place a positive review, there could be lines out the door and up the block.

Last week I posted David Portnoy's Top 20 Jersey pizza ratings in New Jersey and realized I didn't go far enough. The lowest rating at number 20 was The Tap House in West Caldwell with a very respectable 8.2.

So I figured with the holiday season approaching and people wanting to give the gift of pizza as well as indulge themselves, let's drop the list down to the reviews that were in the sevens, including the latest review of Bricco Coal Fired Pizza.

Seven is a lucky number for any New Jersey pizza place that was able to procure that number in a review from "El Presidente"
