Pizza Philadelphia Style


Pizza Philadelphia style would have to involve steak and onions, right? Well, most of the pizza places in Philadelphia do offer that and much, much more. You’ll find everything from local farm fresh pizzas to vegan greatness and everything in between in this cultured city.

Most any pizza place is going to have both fans and people who think it doesn’t rate on the pizza scale.

Here are several pizza places to try and judge for yourself.
