Pizzeria Beddia – Philadelphia, PA
Named by Bon Appetit one of the best Restaurants of 2019 in America and also named by Time magazine as one of the top 19 best places in the world is a lot to live up to. Well when you serve one of the HOLY SH#! best tasting pizza I’ve ever had, the accolades are well deserved. Best of the World and America? I’m not sure, but the Squash Pizza made 3 ways topped with arugula was hands down an out of body experience regarding pizza and my thoughts on pizza. When ordered, it was the pizza I was least looking forward to eating, but figured I would try the special of the night. The special of the night??? They need this pizza on the menu EVERYDAY!!! I’ve never even been a fan of specialty pizza previously and considered them a gimmick and overdone. I am happy I was proven wrong.
I will say this. They are certainly the best around anywhere as far as specialty pizza is concerned. There are A LOT of great pizza places in Philly that I really enjoy in regards to plain cheese pizza and tomato pie so competition is tough here. Pizzeria Beddia does not disappoint and ranks up there with a great plain pie and tomato pie. This is Philly style pizza done well with the crust, sauce, and cheese you are used to, but better than most.
Again where they excel is taking good quality and high end fresh ingredients and making them shine. By putting roasted onions, crimini mushrooms, and sausage on top of another pizza, it really elevated it and brought it to another level.
They really top it all off with an AMAZING sweat cream soft serve dessert. It was like a heavenly fancy version of Mr. Softee. Perfect and the perfect way to end the meal. The check-in process is a little clunky, but the service and food were top notch. I know to eat there isn’t easy, but if you like pizza they are MUST destination to try. You can even enjoy some good adult beverages while there and who doesn’t like that.
