Pizza Hunt II

pizzahuntSome of you old schoolers may remember our 2006 hunt for the best pizza in Philly. We had a lot of fun, and ate a lot of pizza. Well, I’m about ready to do it again. Some spots we will be sure to hit again, such as our 2006 winners┬áTacconelli’s, Tony’s, and Mama Palma’s. But I want to try some new places too. And this year we are going to add the excitement of moving pictures to our hunt! That’s right, we’re gonna drag out the video camera to various spots around the city. So now the rest is up to you. Where should we go to find the best pizza in Philadelphia? Let me know in the comments.

  1. As far as new places that weren't around during the original hunt, I think you need to visit Slice for an official visit.

  2. Rustica in Northern Liberties is great.

    I really dig their Francesca pie, which I'm man enough to admit I can't handle more than 2 or 3 slices of due to how hot and spicy it is.

    PS If we're including nearby NJ. I'm a big fan of Sorrento's in Collingswood.

  3. I find you can't top Elio's. You can buy it in most supermarkets and keep it in the freezer for when you want it and then zap it in the microwave. No more late night trips to dicey neighborhoods to get a frigging slice of pizza. Sometimes when I'm feeling particularly daring and frisky, I'll put my own toppings on it. I've never been one to stick to the rules. Bologna cut in small pieces makes for a suprisingly good topping.

  4. The best pizza in Philadelphia is in Port Richmond. Taccanelli┬┤s thin crust pizza is by far the most delicious pizza I have ever had. Make sure you order your dough in advance. By the way, it is a BYO, so bring your cooler full of beer and wine (hard liquor is not allowed).

  5. Speaking of spicey food, did you hear about that explosion at that Slim Jim factory in NC? Makes me wonder about what they put in those damn things. I'm switching to some other kind of beef stick. You got to be careful what you're putting in your mouth.

  6. Tony's is the best, and this cannot be argued. But Charlie's on the boulevard at Adams is pretty great and old-school Philly. People from the NE will know it by its awesomely bad Comcast commercial which may be older than Goodtimes.

    Also pretty good is Santucci's square pies, but they are no fun to go to, which is close to as important as the pie.

  7. This is pretty easy… Lorenzo's on South St. Best tasting slice of plain and best bang for the buck because the slices are so large. Oh and this past weekend I went to the Roots Picnic and ate a couple of slices at some place next to Club Egypt at the corner of Spring Garden and Delaware Ave. I don't know the name of the place, but the pizza was great. Best BBQ Chicken slice ever.

  8. the french bread pizza from shakedown st at the Phish show on Sunday really hit the spot. maybe thats the nitron talking. but it was good

  9. need to go outside of philly for my personal favorites:
    Mack and Manco's in OC
    I like Grotto in Delaware, but I've grown a little sick of it
    My favorite pizza of all time is Sabatini's Pizza in Exeter PA
