Guess Which Philly Restaurant Was on The List of The Daily Meal’s Best Pizza in Every State
We all know about the cheesesteak wars going on in Philly and everyone has their own opinion of where to get the best stakes. However, playing second fiddle is the batter over the best pizza. Considering that Philly falls right within the “pizza belt” of America, there is some stiff competition for who actually has the best pies. From traditional to thin crust to oven baked and even square pizzas, Philly has it all.
So when The Daily Meal recently released their list of The Best Pizza in Every State, there was no guarantee that it would be a Philadelphia establishment that would take the coveted Pennsylvania spot. Of course neighboring New York would undoubtedly feature an NYC establishment, but who knows what pizzeria The Daily Meal would choose from Philly to Pittsburgh. Well wonder no more because the honor belongs to Pizzeria Vetri. That’s right not only does Vetri continually make the list for best restaurants in the city, they also make a mean pie.
According to The Daily Meal, “You can trace Pizzeria Vetri’s pedigree back to Osteria, chef Marc Vetri’s casual Italian restaurant that followed his 30-seat à la carte-turned-tasting menu Vetri. Osteria’s homemade pastas and wood-grilled fare quickly garnered local and national accolades, including a James Beard Award nomination for Best New Restaurant in 2008 and a 2010 award for Chef Jeff Michaud (Best Chef Mid-Atlantic).
But its pizza! The Italian, thin-crust pies took on a success of their own, landing on GQ’s list of the 25 best pizzas in America. Baked egg with bitto cheese and cotechino, zucchini with stracciatella and lemon, octopus and smoked mozzarella — talk about a revelation. Thus it was in 2013 that the Vetri family bestowed upon Osteria lovers a new gift: Pizzeria Vetri.”
So for those looking to to try a slice of what has been proclaimed as Philly’s best pizza then be sure to head over the Pizzeria Vetri and be sure to let us know in our comments who you believe has the best slices in the City of Brotherly Love.
