Pizza, get your Hoboken pizza

The annual Hoboken Pizza Derby announces:

2016 Pizza Derby! Coming up Sat Oct 1!

Join us on Saturday, October 1 for the 8th Annual Hoboken Pizza Derby! This family-friendly party is hosted by the Community Church of Hoboken at 6th and Garden Streets. This year’s menu will offer more than two dozen different pies to be sampled! From savory to saucy, there is the widest sampling of Hoboken’s Tastiest Pies. (Of course we order some simple classics for the kids too…) Take a look at last year’s menu here. Here is how it works: waves of Pizzas are ordered simultaneously. As the arrivals come in we record the fastest delivery time. The Heat Troll then administers the infra-red heat gun to gauge whose arrives the Hottest. As in previous years, everyone gets a scoring sheet which lists ALL the pies we are ordering. Score as many as you taste in categories of: consistency of crust, tastiness of sauce, freshness of toppings, and flavor of cheese. It’s a friendly competition, even when the delivery people bump into each other at the front gate! Pizza, non-alcoholic beverages, and dessert is included for your donation.  This year the proceeds are shared between the Church’s Capital Renovation fund and the Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse. Discounted tickets are available in advance via brown paper tickets.
