Jules Thin Crust Pizza Now Open in Princeton

Jules PizzaJust a week after Nomad Pizza opened at the Princeton Shopping Center, Jules Thin Crust Pizza is now open for business on Witherspoon Street in downtown Princeton, just in time for reunions and graduation.

Jules serves organic thin crust pizzas and organic salads. You can eat at the pizzeria or order pizza to go or for pick up. The pizzeria offers three types of crust — whole grain white, whole wheat, and gluten-free. Jules one of the few pizzerias in the area that serves gluten-free pizza. Many people who have celiac disease or gluten allergies rave about the Jules crust and say it is tasty and has a nice texture, unlike many gluten-free substitutes.

Meat pie combinations at Jules include combinations like the BLT pie, buffalo chicken, and a roasted hormone-free chicken pie with chopped tomatoes, onions, cilantro, lime juice, and mozzarella. Veggie lovers can choose from a feta cheese pie with olives, tomatoes and arugula, pesto with spinach and artichoke hearts, and more than a dozen other combinations.

Salad choices include mixed greens, Caesar, feta cheese, goat cheese, kale with toppings, and an apple, pecan and dried cranberry salad.

Some items on the menu are seasonal and the pizzeria adds new items regularly.

Jules front pizzeriaJules has seven other locations, including an eatery in Newtown. The original Jules was opened in Doylestown by a local couple ten years ago.

The hours for the new Princeton location are Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sundays 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The pizzeria is BYOB. You can order online for pick up at julesthincrust.com.

Jules replaced Subway, which closed this spring after being open approximately a decade.


  1. Can anyone please advise me if this chain restaurant is acceptable? I’m thinking maybe it’s OK, because it’s got a home-spun vibe and it’s ‘artisanal’, but I’m not sure if it’s “what the town needs” 😉

  2. Call me old fashioned but “what the town needs” will be worked out over time based on the free market.

    In the meantime, look on the bright side. It’s the first time in years that anything remotely edible has been for sale in the space now occupied by Jules.

  3. I live in Newtown and work in Princeton and have been to Jules many times. It is delicious.

  4. Sounds terrific – I love that they have gluten-free pizza and whole wheat pizza and the toppings sound excellent. Also organic salads – great! Can’t wait to try them!

  5. Why is this ‘news’? Is this article paid for by the restaurant? It’s interesting that restaurants like Masala Grill close because of increasing rent and the Ferry House can’t pay its taxes. I can’t see how anything except corporate backed businesses can survive.

    1. It is news because we cover food and the changes in restaurants in town. Lots of our readers want to read about food/restaurants. Also many people are interested in places that offer gluten-free options. No one has paid us for posting this. If so the story would be clearly labelled “sponsored post.” Thanks for asking.

  6. I doubt this pizzeria’s gluten free pizza actually safe for people with celiac disease. Too many businesses (of all sizes and shapes) have no idea that they are literally poisoning their customers who think they are eating gluten free.

    Any business who *cares* about their celiac customers (and no, it’s Not an allergy, it’s an auto-immue disease) should be aware of the risks to their customer’s health from cross contamination.

    In addition, any one with celiac should though roughly research any business who claims something is “gluten free.” Gluten-free often does not mean gluten-free. Go research “cross contamination” and the FDA regulation around with a gluten free label actually means. It probably means a lot less for local businesses with less standardized processes.

    1. Jules has partnered with the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, follows best practices for handling and preparing (according to the company) and their dough is certified gluten free. https://julesthincrust.com/glutenfree

      Also, we did not say Celiac Disease is an allergy. Some people have Celiac Disease and others can’t eat gluten because of an allergy.
