Where to Celebrate National Pepperoni Pizza Day in Hoboken

Written by:

September is an exciting time of year. It hallmarks the unofficial beginning of fall and all things pumpkin flavored and a very exciting holiday — National Pepperoni Pizza Day. Falling on September 20th, celebrating this holiday is easy, especially here in the Mile Square, as the city is filled with pizza shops.

The pepperoni was first introduced as a pizza topping in the early 1900s in New York City and more than a century later, we are still enjoying this Lower Manhattan creation. With countless options for pizza toppings, pepperoni pizza remains the most popular pizza today. You might have a go-to spot but check out this roundup and maybe try someplace new this National Pepperoni Pizza Day.
