Chef Robert Aikens reviews Tartufo pizza at Pizzeria Stella
$$ | Italian | Pizza
Society Hill
"Stella bakes the best pizzas in Philly. They're nice and crisp with a slight char, yet still doughy. The pizzas are absolute perfection and also have a great variety in flavors. It's impossible to pick just one, but If I had to, it would be the Tartufo pizza as it has truffle and eggs, two things that I love. You can smell the pizza wafting through the restaurant before you see it! The yolk is still nice and runny, and you get to stir this in with the fontina cheese. It's just a great pizza."
Chef Jonathan Adams reviews Zucchini pizza at Pizzeria Stella
$$ | Italian | Pizza
Society Hill
"Stella is easily the most accessible 'higher-end' pizza joint in the city, and the special pies are always the best ones to order. I love this one, featuring sweet zucchini on a cloud of ricotta laced with red onions."
Chef Michael Solomonov reviews Broccoli rabe at Pizzeria Stella
$$ | Italian | Pizza
Society Hill
"I could eat a ton of this and possibly not offend anyone with my breath, because the garlic is shaved so thinly that it practically melts. The ricotta salata in there gives it a salty tang."
Chef Bryan Sikora reviews Pepperoni pizza at Pizzeria Stella
$$ | Italian | Pizza
Society Hill
"I go with my daughter all the time. I love the casual environment. We get pepperoni every time, and it has such a good ratio of pepperoni to cheese. It's a simple pie, but the quality of the ingredients and the crispiness of the crust just set it off."
Chef John Taus reviews Pancetta pizza at Pizzeria Stella
$$ | Italian | Pizza
Society Hill
"The pastas are underrated and the octopus salad is always on point, but the pancetta with crispy Tuscan kale pie is my favorite order here. It's super rustic and delicious, and the best pizza in the city."
