LIVINGSTON, NJ — My Way Pizzeria & Catering, a new pizzeria located at 593 S. Livingston Ave. that serves pizza, Italian hot dogs and sausages, Parm sandwiches and many other favorites, hosted Mayor Al Anthony, members of the Livingston Township Council, members of the Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce, family, friends and staff at the restaurant on Aug. 5 for a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

Co-Owners Randy Oliva and Jerry Johnson provided free pizza, pasta, sandwiches and refreshments to those who came out to join them in celebration of the recently opened pizzeria. The owners thanked everyone who has supported My Way Pizza during its first month and for helping to spread the word.

Johnson, who is the previous owner of former pizzeria Ricky Dee’s, a popular Livingston eatery in the 90s, is enthusiastic about bringing his expertise back to the Township of Livingston.

“So far it’s been really good—we’re meeting a lot of new people and also a lot of old customers,” said Oliva. “It’s nice to meet to see the older crowd who used to come to Ricky Dee’s in high school and now they’re bringing their kids in. It’s a pretty cool experience.”
