Hoboken and Jersey City are both home to some amazing pizza joints. If you’re a pizza fanatic and want to support locals, there are plenty of options. But sometimes you’re in the mood for Sicilian-style pizza – a thick-crusted, rectangular slice. Sicilian pizza is often topped with sauce that goes right to the edges, herbs, and cheese. To help you explore, and find the best slice of Sicilian in the area, read for a list of all of the places to get a Sicilian slice in Hoboken and Jersey City.

With both a Hoboken and a soon-to-open Jersey City location in place, you’re never far from a good Sicilian slice in Hudson County.
