Bergen County’s claim to fame is probably our shopping, but second up? Our pizza, for sure. From deep dish to thin crust, all the fixings to just plain cheese, our county is chock full of pizza spots who know the perfect ratio of bread to cheese to sauce to toppings. We’re sure it helps that we’re just a few miles from New York City, which ranked No. 1 on the list of 2021’s Best Cities for Pizza Addicts

But if you want to change up your pandemic pizza game, Feb. 9, National Pizza Day, is the ideal time to do so. Try one (or all) of these five unique slices that are known across the county and are more than worth the trek if they’re not located right in your ’hood. And be sure to let us know what your go-to slice is if it’s not listed below:

  • Cork & Crust, Harrington Park. When you can’t decide between a calzone or a pizza, indulge in the “Hoboken,” pictured above, which is featured on the Cork & Crust dinner menu and is half calzone, half pizza pie topped with cupped pepperoni, mozz, vodka sauce and a garlic knot crust. 90 La Roche Ave., Harrington Park, 201.367.1550
  • Ferazzoli’s Italian Kitchen, Rutherford. You can also have the best of both worlds with this spot’s delish “chicken tenders & fries” slice which is reminiscent of a Jersey specialty, the fat sandwich. PS: If you feel the need to dip it in ketchup, we won’t tell if you don’t. 317 Union Ave., Rutherford, 201.729.0707
  • Kinchley’s Tavern, Ramsey. This place is known county-wide for its thin crust pizza, and one of its fan favorites is the “Garbage Pie,” with toppings including pepperoni, sausage, onion, mushroom, sweet pepper and anchovy. 586 N. Franklin Tpke., Ramsey, 201.934.7777
  • The Plank Pizza Co., Saddle Brook. These guys make their pizzas on a sourdough bread crust, and each one is a personal pie rather than a slice. Italians especially will love their specialty “Sunday Dinner” option, filled with homemade meatloaf, mashed potatoes, gravy and mozzarella cheese. 383 Market St. D, Saddle Brook, 201.843.2426
  • S. Egidio, Ridgewood. Sweeten up your slice with the “Tirolo” pizza from this Ridgewood restaurant, which features the unexpectedly delicious flavor combination of creamy fior di latte cheese, fresh ricotta, speck, hazelnut and honey. 17 N. Broad St., Ridgewood, 201.389.3525
