Hudson County is filled with incredible pizza places.

If there’s one assumption about New Jersey that’s we’re not upset about it’s the quality of our food. Whether it’s diners or bakeries, we Garden Staters know how to whip up a good meal. And that couldn’t be truer than when it comes to pizza.

With so many reputable pizzerias across the state, we had to break it down a bit or else we’d be here for days. These are the best pizza spots in Hudson County.

1. Razza in Jersey City

A cozy little pizza place that is co-owned by Dan Richer, who also runs the highly recommended Arturo’s in Maplewood. The menu is small; there are eight pizzas, salads, and small plates but the flavor is delicious. Some of the pizzas include the “panna” pizza with tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, grass-fed PA cow’s cream, arugula and parmigiana. Make sure to also try the fire-roasted meatballs as an appetizer!

What To Eat: The soppressata pizza for $17 the perfect combo of meat and cheese.

2. Basile’s Pizza in Hoboken

Basile’s offers thin crust and special dough. Russell Basile (the owner) says he uses his grandmother’s old recipes; local water, homemade sauce, Wisconsin cheese and the real secret – Panko. He puts the Japanese breadcrumb on the bottom of all of his round pies, of which there are 20.

What To Eat: Obviously the Grandma Pizza for $20 is a must-have.

3. Trattoria La Sorrentina in North Bergen

The décor is old country Italian family, the portions are generous and the brick oven pizzas are to die for – especially the margarita brick oven pizza. It’s a no frills joint in terms of décor, but is top of the game in terms of flavor.

What To Eat: The Quattro Stagioni is a delicious variation on the classic four-cheese pizza and has a combo of eggplant, artichokes, mushrooms, and prosciutto ($13.95).

4. Grimaldi’s Coal Brick Oven in Hoboken

Grimaldi’s doesn’t try to hide its pizza under fancy names and ingredients. They’re an old school pizza joint with a simple menu of your favorites that have been passed down from generation to generation.

What To Eat: Their specialty is white pizza so if you’re a fan of cheesy pizza and could care less about sauce; this place should be your go-to ($16.75).

5. Luciano’s San Vito Restaurant and Pizzeria in Bayonne

Everything about this place is huge from the menu to the size of their dishes. You can fill up on salads, pastas, appetizers, sandwiches, and more. Bonus: it’s BYOB.

What To Eat: Make sure to try one of their specialty pies –the Buffalo Chicken Pie – it’s outstanding and fresh ($18).
