Any place to get Pennsylvania cold "pitza" closer to New Jersey border? Wed, 08/24/11 3:27 PM (permalink)
I know there's some thread(s) on here in relation to Senape's Bakery and others like Longo's.

I loooooooove Senape's Pitza. For me, though, it's a 4 hour drive one way. I make the trip out there every few years, but the fact is I'd eat it every month or two if I could get it easier.

Is there any place closer to the New Jersey border I might be able to find some of this magical food? I usually place an order for 10 or 20 boxes at a time, because some of the family likes it too.

I emailed Longo's to see if they'll deliver. I prefer Senape's, but I'll take what I can get. I'm going to call Senape's and see if I can arrange for them to deliver me 10 boxes.. maybe I can have UPS make a pickup and pay tip the bakery for packaging them for me.

Heck, if neither of those works I don't know anyone who lives there, so in order to get someone who might be trustworthy I'm thinking of calling a local business like the Florist and asking if they'd do the work for me. I mean the florist makes deliveries to begin with, right? So, I'll pay them for a delivery (in this case a pickup at Senape's and drop off at UPS), a box, and tip them for doing the packing.

    I don't know if it's much closer to Edison, but at the Allentown Farmers Market there is a booth selling Hazelton specialties, including Senape's.  I believe the are open Thursday, Friday, Saturday.

        One place that has excellent "bakery" pizza similar to Senape's and much closer is  LeDonne's Bakery in Roseto PA. I clocked it at about an hour and 10 minutes from Scotch Plains, similar for you I'm sure.
         
        They are closed on Wednesdays, and close every day at noon. It also helps a lot if you call ahead and place an order. Here's some Yelp information. Thier web site is minimal.

        PS: Don't thank me, one of the Roadfood posters from the Lehigh Valley clued me in to it.

          Yeah, sorry I did mapquest and it was 2.5 hours.. so I guess it was round trip. My mistake.
           
          Thank you so much for the post!!!!!!!
           
          I am going to hit up the Allentown Farmer's Market.. too bad you didn't mean Allentown, NJ because I live right near there now. But Allentown, PA is about 1.5 hour drive for me now.

              Just a bump to this thread, we were out to the Allentown Farmer's Market today and the Taste of Hazleton booth (featuring Senape's Pitza) has closed. According the the guy in the Pretzel/Chip booth (love that one too..) they were doing an OK business but couldn't cover a rent increase. Bummer.

                Just an update about LeDonne's in Roseto (mentioned by Ken). It has now been sold and renamed the Roseto Bakery.
                The Tomato Pie (BAKERY PIZZA)is the same recipie.
                They have added a sales area on the first floor(no entering the actual oven area in the basement, from the back  of the building any more) and have added products such as biscotti and cannoli- which they fill  when you order them. The cannoli are good, although not up to the standards of the best Philly places such as Isgros or Termini.
