Top Meat Lover's Pizza In Philadelphia

Who doesn't love pizza? Who doesn't love meat on their pizza! Pizza has become one of the number one take out choices in the United States since anyone can remember.

Ordering pizza from one of the many chains across the nation makes life easy, but true meat lovers will go out of their way to find the best pizza in their hometown. Philadelphia has a wide range of pizza joints and one, in particular, was voted the best in the nation by Bon Appetit. We've also found some other fine pizza joints around the city that customers rave about. Why not make it your mission to visit them all?
Pizzeria Beddia
115 E Girard Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19125

Pizzeria Beddia was voted the number one pizza in the nation by Bon Appetit, so it must be pretty darn good. Actually purchasing the pizza is anything but convenient, so make sure you know what you are doing because it is worth the wait. Beddia only has evening hours from Wednesday to Saturday. The Pizzeria is very tiny with only a few standing-only tables so be prepared for taking out since it is always crowded. They are a cash only establishment and you can not order ahead by phone because they have no phone. Plan to walk in and order your pizza and either wait quite awhile for your order or go home and come back later. Fingers are crossed that maybe someday they will expand.
