NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- New Jersey has pizza lovers in a frenzy after declaring themselves the "pizza capital of the world" on Thursday.

The garden state declared this honor in a tweet by @NJgov, their official, verified Twitter page.

The announcment happened just in time for National Pizza Day on Sunday.

Responses have been flooding in from some New Jersey residents who agree as well as some out-of-state residents who beg to differ. 

The announcement comes about a month after the state also declared that they were the bagel capital of the world.
