Pizza

La Rosa Pizzeria is a quintessential South Philly low-key operation with a counter-serve setup -- there’s no menu, you have to call and tell them what you want. If they have it, they’ll make it. If not, ask for something else. The grandma-style pies come square, with a thick, buttery crust. It’s very well-priced, too, with a large plain pie running around $10.
