Another Hoboken eating option comes to 213 Washington Street this week…..
HomeMade Pizza Continues East Coast Growth with Fifth Area Store HomeMade Pizza Sets its Sights on Hoboken for Fifth New Jersey Area Store
In a region famous for countless pizza options, one company’s pie consistently finds its way onto thousands of east coast dinner tables. HomeMade Pizza Company, started in Chicago, opens its doors for the fifth time in the New Jersey metro area with promises of a new way to think about pizza – and dinner. If past openings are any indication, Hoboken residents can expect lines around the corner.
The opening celebrations – complete with kids’ activities, fresh produce giveaways and free pizza – take place from 4-7 p.m., May 3-4 and 3-7 p.m., May 5 at 213 Washington Street in Hoboken, N.J.
HomeMade Pizza Company began with New York native Eric Fosse, the co-founder of HomeMade Pizza. His passionate dream was to create a new kind of wholesome pizza and an easy way to bring friends and family together around the dinner table. Fosse spent more than two years perfecting the crust in his home kitchen, as well as time abroad studying the fresh eating way of life born out of local European markets.
“I founded HomeMade Pizza based on the belief that there had to be a better way to have hot, fresh, all natural, made-from-scratch pizza at home,” said Fosse. “At HomeMade, we pride ourselves on our signature take-and-bake pizza where customers can cook dinner from the comfort of their home. We’re thrilled to say that East Coasters are not only getting our concept, they absolutely love it. We’re excited to open our fifth store in the New Jersey area and continue our steady expansion on the East Coast.”
HomeMade Pizza Company is now iconic in Chicago, Washington, DC, and most recently New York/New Jersey with fans including everyone from five-star chefs to busy families. Even Oprah featured the unique pies as part of her “Best Pizza in America” special and it is a favorite of people like Brooke Shields and Celebrity Chef Rick Bayless.

TheBoken was able to briefly interview Eric Fosse and he will be at the store Tuesday through Thursday this week. They are giving out free sample pizzas so that residents can try for themselves this new concept of take out food in Hoboken. Eric Fosse told TheBoken that his establishment does everything but cook the food. Besides pizza they also have salads and some desert items. Eric stated that the items in his store are all natural as opposed to organic since he wanted to guarantee that they have only the best quality ingredients available to his customers. Sometimes with the organic label, the bets ingredients are not available.
Eric also said that there were some delays in getting the place open due to the permitting process. He said he had his architects on it and they were able to open now in May of 2011 after taking over in November of 2010. That is about a 7 month turnaround. Many stores have endured a much longer process in Hoboken. TheBoken is looking forward to giving one of these creations a tasting. People: don’t forget to try the free samples this week only from Tuesday through Thursday. Fire up those ovens, HomeMade Pizza has done most of the work for you already.
