Hey Nomsters! We hope you’re ready for a slew of Philly content because we recently took a trip there, and the food was ridonkulously good. For those of you looking for kickass pizza, make sure you bookmark and share because sharing is caring, and we all need more good food to help us through the rest of 2020.
With 3 locations in Philly, Pizzeria Vetri’s known for their incredible wood-fired ‘za. We went to their brick & mortar in Rittenhouse Square (1615 Chancellor Street), and got some delicious takeout for the road. For those of you interested (aka all of you), hours are as follows: Monday through Thursday from 11:30AM-9PM and Friday/Saturday from 11:30AM-10PM.
Must Try Wood-Fired Pizza
We got two pies to go, and although both were delicious, we definitely had a favorite. So, here’s what we got! Pie no. 1 was their braised pork, made with pork shoulder, al latte sauce, citrus gremolata and parmesan. We got the smaller size – $15 for a 12″ round Napoletano and $28 for a 28″ rectangular Metro – but it was actually pretty damn big, especially if you get more than one to share!
Their crudo was our personal favorite, but we’re big into prosciutto so we may or may not be biased. Topped with copious amounts of bufala mozzarella, parmesan, and of course, prosciutto crudo, this beauty was almost too gorgeous to eat.
Most of their pies are tomato sauce less, and they have some really interesting flavor combos so go wild. They make their ‘za with fermented dough and fire it inside a 650 degree oven to get that authentic Napoletano taste – expect crispy, chewy goodness with a generous amount of toppings that will give you a ton of flavor in each bite.
Other Must Try Dishes at Pizzeria Vetri
Although they’re known for their pizza, their potato gratin calzone ($14) was straight fire. It’s seasonal though so we can only hope it’ll be available when you guys go. Stuffed with russet potato gratin, mustard greens, fresh mozz and parmesan, this is a carboholic’s dream come true. Our picture simply doesn’t do it justice, but it’s comfort in food form.
Plus, have you tried potato on pizza? It sounds strange, but it’s nothing short of amazing! Shoutout to BAR (near Yale University) for exposing us to the magic that is mashed potato ‘za. Hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it!
Save Room For Dessert!
No meal’s complete without dessert so definitely make sure to treat yourself to a cannoli or two. They’re $4 a pop, and they’re fairly large with crushed pistachios on each end, which give it an extra somethin’ somethin’ in addition to the crunchiness you get from the shell.
They’re currently offering dine-in, takeout and delivery so support local and treat yourself to some delicious food. Have questions? Give them a call at (215) 763-3760. PS. They’re currently offering a super affordable family bundle so take advantage, Nomsters.
You get a salad, dessert, 2 pizzas and an antipasti for $50 along with coloring pages and crayons for your kids. They also offer fun pizza kits so that’s an option as well! Alright friends, that’s a wrap for today’s feature on Pizzeria Vetri, but keep an eye out for more coming your way soon. Until tomorrow!
