King Of Pizza

If you come to Germantown Ave.’s King of Pizza a few times, you’ll probably keep it in your rotation for a quick $3 slice. While we love some of the newer spots in the city (and on this list) that top their pizza with things like chipotle glaze or beet slaw, this spot (open since 1974) is where we go for classic plain and pepperoni with slices as big as a dinner plate. The crust is light and chewy on the ends but can crunch like a hardshell taco when you bite into it. The slices get coated in a subtle slick of olive oil–like the layer of sunblock you put on at the beach–and it always has a sweet rim of red sauce clutching the arc at the top.

Head to Manayunk to have some of the best pizza in the city at Pizza Jawn. It's a takeout-only spot where you can get round, grandma, and Detroit-style pies with lots of toppings.
