Philly’s Top 10 Pizza PlacesMay 13, 2016 by Buck's Pizza | Comments Off on Philly’s Top 10 Pizza Places
There you are in the City of Brotherly love, craving pizza, but there are so many places to choose from! How to pick? Which Philly pizzerias can be counted on to provide a great slice of pie?
Never fear, we’ve got ten suggestions for you. In no particular order, they are:
Luigi’s Pizza Fresca
You’ve got to love a place that promises “fresh ideas in pizza,” particularly when that place has garnered awards like “Best Pizza,” “Best Over the Top Topping,” and “Best Sicilian Pizza,” just to name a few. Opt for the regular slice or go “whole hog” for the stuffed version.
Lazaro’s Pizzeria and Grill
If you like gonzo slices—as in, so big you can’t eat them with one hand—on a thin crust, Lazaro’s may be the place for you! Known for its sweet sauce, this South Street pizzeria will let you order a slice with any and as many toppings you want.
Unusual pizza is Rustica’s specialty, and with pies like the Jambalaya (chicken, clams, red peppers, and carrots) and the Scrapple (Habbersett scrapple, sunny-side-up egg, and siracha catsup), we can certainly understand what they mean!
Rosa’s Fresh Pizza
Billed as “The Freshest Slice in Philly,” Rosa’s not only gives you an excellent slice of pie for a buck—that’s right, $1—but give over a second dollar, and Rosa’s owner will use it to provide a slice to the homeless. You can even write a Post-It to go along with your donation!
Kermit’s Bake Shoppe
If you find yourself on Washington Avenue, you’ll want to check out this pizza-and-cake shoppe, where each pizza slice is topped with three kinds of cheese—mozzarella, Grana Padano, and Romano—and mouthwatering desserts range from bread pudding to a toasted coconut cream tart.
Lorenzo & Sons
Colossal slices from what The Daily Meal calls one of the top 101 pizzeria’s in the U.S. Listen, these slices are so big, it takes two paper plates to hold just one! Each slice is a meal in itself, and for a reasonable price, too!
If you have pizza on your brain, you might want to head for Fishtown’s Pizza Brain, where you can get a delicious Bob Shieldsmoose white pie, topped with brisket, maytag bleu cheese brisket, garlic, horseradish, black pepper, mozzarella, and rosemary, plus a stroll through the pizza memorabilia museum.
Mmm. Just imagine an ultra-thin, ultra-crispy crust topped with extra virgin olive oil, garlic, mozzarella, portabella mushrooms, and artichokes, all finished with white truffle oil! You can even get it gluten free at Slice!
Situated in the Italian Market, no less, Little Italy offers tangy New-York style pizza, cooked to order. As a matter of fact, the extra crispy, extra-well-done is topped with cheese hot enough to fry your taste buds!
Owned by the Borda family since it first opened, Francoluigi’s offers traditional pizza, gourmet pies like the Caruso—chicken breast, onion, peppers, and mushrooms cooked in wine sauce—and square Sicilian pizza.
