If there’s one thing Hoboken residents take very seriously, it’s the pizza, and as a result, there’s no shortage of spots to grab a slice in the Mile Square. We’ve singled out the very best pizza spots in town (sorted by your cravings + scenario). Read on for where to get the best pizza in Hoboken.
For Gluten-Free, Coal-Fired Pizza:
Grimaldi’s: | 411 Washington Street
Gluten-free peeps rejoice. Next time you’re out with your besties craving a slice, head over to Grimaldi’s for a total crowd-pleaser. Not only are their regular pizzas rave-worthy, but their gluten-free options are the best around — barely tasting any difference from the real thing. You can even order a personal pie and customize your toppings.
For a First-Date Pizza Spot:
Johnny Pepperoni | 219 11th Street
Red and white checkered placemats, great food, and a BYOB policy create a casual-yet-cute, no-pressure atmosphere for a first date. If you’re not a pizza purist, we recommend trying the chicken parm pie or, well, anything with pepperoni.
For a Romantic Pizza Dinner Vibe:
San Giuseppe’s | 1320 Adams Street
Head uptown to San Giuseppe for gourmet coal-fired pizzas (plus delicious entrees and pasta dishes) in an elegant environment. For the sweetest end to your evening, share one of three Dolce Pizzes: The Baci (Nutella and fragole sprinkled with confectionary sugar), the La Dolce Vita (caramelized apples, crumbs, candied walnuts, drizzled with vanilla icing) or the Romeo and Juliet (sweet amaretto ricotta, Fabbri amarena cherries, toasted chopped pistachio nuts, and dark chocolate shavings).
For a Family-Friendly Locale to Eat-in or Take-Out:
Napoli’s | 1118 Washington Street + 133 Clinton Street

Known for their amazing pies and awesome dine-in atmosphere, it should be no surprise that the delivery is a stand-out too. Free delivery within Hoboken, available on Seamless, arrives on time and solid, dependable pizzas.
For the Biggest Pizza Slice in New Jersey:
Benny Tudinos | 622 Washington Street
Trust us, you’re gonna need two plates here. “Home of the Largest Slice,” this iconic Hoboken pizza shop has been serving up super-sized pizzas for nearly 50 years, and it never disappoints. Oh, and since your slice is going to be about the size of a small baby, we suggest cutting your usual order in half (so one slice, maybe two will do you major justice).
For a Pizza Pie with a View:
Blue Eyes Cafè | 525 Sinatra Drive
Incredible pizza, incredible view. What more could you ask for? This Sinatra-themed Italian restaurant on the waterfront offers an extensive pasta menu as well as some to-die-for pie options. Dining with a friend or two? Try the tri-pizza (above). Split three ways, you can satisfy everyone’s craving, or get a taste of each topping.
For When You Want to Try Something Different:
Tenth Street Pasta + Pizza | 1000 Willow Avenue
For When You’re Feeling Adventurous:
Tony Boloney’s | 263 1st Street
Tony Boloney’s is whipping up some of the most unique pies in town (or like, anywhere probably). Their menu is full of crazy pies like the Taco Pizza (pictured above, only available on Tuesdays), Ramen pizza, French Onion Soup pizza, Tikka Masala pizza, + a whole lot more.
For When You’re Craving a Pie All To Yourself:
Torna’s | 254 9th Street
Torna’s has been serving pizza to both new and loyal customers for over 60 years. It’s best known for its Sicilian Pie (also available by slice), meatball parm sub, personal pies. The menu spans across all the classic appetizers, calzones, and pasta dinners of the same quality.
For When You’re Craving a Late-Night Snack:
Imposto’s | 102 Washington Street
Customers who visit Imposto’s Pizza in Hoboken can expect nothing less than high-quality ingredients from each pizza or pasta dish they order. The new owners revamped the menu so be sure to stop by for a slice on the way home from a night out on the town.
For When You Want a Li’l Crunch on Your Za
The Pizza Shop by Flour | 500 Jefferson Street
With just an ordering counter and some outside tables, The Pizza Shop by Flour is an unassuming spot that packs a mighty punch of delicious thin-crust pizza. Each slice is a perfect blend of that signature crunchy crust and gooey, cheesy goodness on top. In addition to a traditional pizza pie, you can also find some pretty unique options like the No Cap White Pie (ricotta cream, mushrooms, pesto) or the Post Melòn (prosciutto, melon, arugula pesto, Kosterina balsamic). Check out the full menu here.
For When You’re Craving a Vegan Pie
The Brick | 1122 Washington Street
The Brick pizzeria dedicated a whole section of the menu to vegan cuisine, and of course, that includes a vegan pie. While you can never go wrong with The Brick’s (vegan) Margherita and classic cheese pizza, a must-try pie on the menu is the BBQ pulled pork (not actual pork), made with pulled young jackfruit and red onions, sautéed in BBQ sauce, and all topped with cilantro and lime juice. Each of the restaurant’s six pies can be made gluten-free upon request, too.
