Hudson & Packard shared the news on social media that they're returning to the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas as the best pizza spots across the globe battle for supremacy. They should know about the Expo, considering they took home 2nd place in 2022 for Best Pan Pizza (the “Holé Molé,) in the world.
The Times Union describes the special, “Holé Molé pan pizza, made just for last year's expo by H&P owner and chef Charlie Webb, as a pan pizza "topped with mole negro, habanero salsa, avocado purèe, red onions, Oaxacan cheese and duck confit."
Hudson & Packard specializes in authentic Detroit-style pizza, which is a rectangular pan pizza (somewhat shaped like Sicilian) with a thick crust that is described as crispy and chewy. Hudson & Packard first started as a pop-up business at the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory in September 2019. By late 2020, they expanded by opening their current location at 29 Academy Street in Poughkeepsie.
