So Glen Macnow of sports station WIP went to the trouble of ranking the best (and worst) pizzas in Philadelphia. Appropriately for WIP’s listener base, it’s a heavily suburban-oriented list that skews towards DelCo and the Jersey ‘burbs. The top three? Port Richmond’s dough-reserving Tacconelli’s Pizza, by-the-stadium Celebre’s and standby South Philly red sauce joint Marra’s. A few pizzerias get savaged—they say Verona Pizza in Upper Darby is “capable of creating a (cheese) string from Manute Bol’s mouth to the plate” and that another pizza in Ardmore is “the gastronomic equivalent of bad sex” as well. However, for our money, the best part of the piece is the ongoing comments thread. Who knew that South Jersey was so passionate about their pizza?
