Get Wild with Pizza This January

Market Pizza is going wild again and the adventure begins Friday, January 21st, 2022.

The event benefits Hunters Helping the Hungry – HHH, a 501c3 organization that donates venison from local Hunters to state wide food pantries. The funds raised go towards the organization’s expense of meat processing through approved butchers by the State of NJ Health Dept. This event is supported by the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife.

Food has always brought people together, whether its a family dining table or new friends at a pizza bar, so this fund raiser is a natural fit. HHH provides a means to bring protein not usually available through food pantries to the table.

This is the sixth year HHH and Market Pizza have teamed up, with fundraising efforts exceeding well over twenty thousand meals just by adventurous foodies coming out to try something different.

For each venison pizza purchased, a portion of the proceeds will go to HHH. For those less adventurous who want to participate the regular menu is available, and a donation maybe paid directly to the organization.

“Wild Game Month” created by the Pizza Witch – Megan Jones-Holt, has become a tradition for many loyal followers who will drive over an hour just to experience the different game specials. It also caught the eye of the Editor of PMQ, an international pizza magazine, featuring a cover story in the March 2021 issue.

The only difference this year is the Pizza Witch has passed on the magical recipe book to her son, Justin Holt of Clinton, and his business partner Brendon Phillips of Whitehouse, who took ownership of the business January first.

“I am so happy to be able to carry on what my mom has created”, said Holt.” I was a part of Market Pizza when she took it over from Jamie Hollander in May 2016. We both trained under him. Then my video production business took off and I had to shift focus. Now I am back and able to carry on the family legacy. I have no doubt the Pizza Witch will be watching and jumping in from time to time”.

Over the past month Justin and Brendon have been on hand to meet and greet the Market Pizza customers, and have vowed not to change a thing. Brendon went so far as to say, “We came into this knowing how beloved these pizzas are to the impressive fan base the Pizza Witch has garnered. Maintaining the spirit of these bewitching flavor profiles has been our main drive and focus from the start.” Justin Holt exclaimed, “We do one thing and it’s magical. Artisan Hearth-baked gourmet pizza. Handmade dough, farm fresh ingredients with unique experiences.”

Market Pizza and Hunters Helping the Hungry Team Up Again

Hunters-Helping-the-Hungry-2 with Megan from Market Pizza

Local venison is not something typically available at area restaurants, however on January 12-14th it will be featured at Market Pizza in the Stockton Market. The special food event is a part of a fundraising effort on behalf of Hunters Helping the Hungry in Hunterdon County.

Rotarians Megan Jones-Holt, Clinton Sunrise Rotary, and Lester Giese, North Hunterdon Rotary, have teamed up once again to raise money for Hunters Helping the Hungry(HHH) and continue to bring awareness to Rotary’s Hunger in Hunterdon Campaign. Through the Market Pizza and Hunters Helping the Hungry Partnership, Jones-Holt has raised enough to provide over eight thousand meals for the organization.

Megan, Partner and Chef of Market Pizza, uses her passion of creating unique food experiences to host the event. All artisan gourmet pizzas are personal sized with creative weekly specials such as Shrimp and Grits, Brussel Sprouts with Pistachios, and Cranberry Bacon. Market Pizza was named 2017 Hunterdon Happenings’ Best Pizza and Jones-Holt was just nominated by Edible Jersey (  Local Heroes for Food Artisan.

Les, is an originating member of the 501c3 non profit organization formed in 1997. Area hunters donate their deer to select NJ State Health Department inspected  HHH partner butchers. The meat is then distributed through NORWESCAP. All money raised goes towards the processing of the venison, with over 1.6 Million meals donated to date.

The venison that will be used has been donated by Mark Charbonneau, board member and  processed by Game Butchers on Route 31 in Lebanon. The meat and event has been approved by the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, the State of NJ Health Department and the Hunterdon County Health Department.

This fundraiser has a wide appeal to adventurous foodies and avid hunters. It will be the kick off to four weeks of Wild Game featured pizzas. For each venison pizza purchased, proceeds will go to the Hunters Helping the Hungry organization. For those less adventurous and still want to participate you may select from the regular menu or visit any one of the other food purveyors located in the market and make a donation directly to the organization.

HHH members will be at the market to accept donations and answer any questions about the organization. The kick off Friday night will also feature the music of the TieDye Hillbilly Dance Band from 6-8PM.
