10 Killer Slices of Pizza in PhillyBy Danya Henninger | February 7, 2014 By Danya Henninger | February 7, 2014
“If you were the mayor of Philadelphia, would you eat a cheesesteak with a knife and fork?” Such was the rhetorical question indignantly posed by Jon Stewart as he introduced a segment about Bill de Blasio on The Daily Show recently. The NYC mayor, of course, had committed the sin of eating one of his city’s signature foods (pizza) with utensils, and it was captured on video. Forkgate ensued, and it was messier than deep-dish pie.
(For the record, Mayor Nutter does not eat cheesesteaks with a knife and fork, although he also does not eat red meat, so he goes for chicken cheesesteaks, handheld.)
Back on the pizza front: there’s a lot of good pizza in Philadelphia these days, but most of it is either Neapolitan or square-pie/tomato-pie-style. Where can you pick up a good triangular slice, the kind you hold and fold as you chomp from tip to crust? Check out these 10 slice finds around the city. (Did we miss your favorite?
