The Pizza That Saved Broad Street

Osteria Pizza
Craig LaBan weighs in on Osteria, Marc Vetri’s North Broad outpost. LaBan finds “one of the most compelling menus in town.” But it’s the pizza, the pizza that might change an entire section of the city.

The heat-blistered crust is as thin as a cracker, a round not much bigger than a dinner plate. Its toppings are minimalism at its best – a bloom of tomato sunshine dappled with mozzarella clouds and plumes of fresh basil. But it may go down as the pizza that saved North Broad Street.
