Best Pizza Delivery

Santucci’s
901 South 10th Street, Bella Vista, 215-825-5304

With Santucci’s delivery from Bella Vista, the pie is still steaming and the crust is still crispy upon arrival. At least one of those facts is a miracle.

Best Pizza Destination

Pizza Brain
2313 Frankford Avenue, Fishtown, 215-291-2965

Pizza Brain is a destination. Go for the World’s First Pizza Museum, stay for the incredible (and strange) pies.

Best Deep Dish Pizza

Garces Trading Co.
1111 Locust Street, Center City, 215-574-1099

The Chicago Deep Dish at Garces Trading Co. is a great pizza that’s not really pizza. (Start sending your hate mail now, casserole lovers.)

Best Simple Blue-Collar Pie

Franzone’s
501 Dekalb Street, Bridgeport, 610-275-0114

Franzone’s does the best simple blue-collar pie: Nothing fancy—just an addictive sweet sauce on one of the best non-gourmet pizzas you’ll find.

Best Old School Pizza

Gennaro’s Tomato Pies
1429 Jackson Street, South Philly, 215-463-5070

Go old-school with —crispy New York-style pizzas to make your heart sing, probably in Italian.

Best Roman Pizza

Bufad
1240 Spring Garden Street, Center City, 215-238-9311

For Roman pizza, do Bufad —any pizza you have to cut with scissors is cool from the start.

Best Take Out Pizza

Pizzeria Beddia
115 East Girard Avenue, Fishtown, no phone

If you’re taking out, you can’t beat Pizzeria Beddia: no phone, no chairs, no slices, weird hours, and pies from pizza savant Joe Beddia, who uses nothing but the best ingredients.
