Italian racing-themed Neapolitan-style brick-oven pizzas
Monza is an Italian racing-themed restaurant that specializes in gourmet Neapolitan-style brick oven pizzas, and its space just got a new 2019 glow-up. Like DeSano, it also has many of its ingredients and equipment imported from Italy, but it has a focus on sourcing ingredients and flavors from local suppliers as well. Try the Vanwall Special made with pesto, mozzarella, shrimp, and seasonal tomatoes.

Casual, New York-style pizzeria ideal for lunch and late night
At 2am, you’ll see a line of not-so-sober college students forming on Market Street with people waiting to get one of these giant slices of New York-style pizza to eat as they stumble home. We’re talking super-thin crust, lots of cheese, and lots of grease on slices that require two hands to hold. It's open during the day, too, so you can get a cheap slice whenever the mood strikes.

No-frills neighborhood pizza joint
Established by Philly natives, D’als (as it is lovingly referred to) is a neighborhood favorite located just south of the crosstown in the heart of Elliotborough Downtown. The menu is filled with unique and creative options for hand-tossed pizzas, calzones, salads, and caljoes (panini sandwiches). You can also find its frozen pizzas around town at places like Bull Street Gourmet & Market for a take-and-bake option. Our favorite: the Chauncinator, a margherita with double pepperoni.
