Who Makes the Best Pizza in Town? You Decide

So who has the best pizza in town?

Register for the Pottstown Regional Public Library's Pizza Tasting Event next week and help to answer that question yourself.

As word of the event -- scheduled for 6:30 p.m., July 23 -- has spread, the event itself has grown, said Leslie Stillings, director of youth services, who helped organize the event.

"This started out as a run of the mill summer program, but has begun to garner some attention from different pizza places," Stillings wrote in an e-mail responding to a Mercury inquiry. 

"The pizzerias have been coming to us. So we decided to move it upstairs, open it up to a larger audience, and have begun to create multiple categories for voting and certificates for the winning pizzerias," Stillings wrote. 

"Some of the categories include: best overall, best crust, best sauce."

The program is intended for teenagers, 10 to 18 years of age, but the library will also welcome children and families.

They ask that participants pre-register, either by calling 610-970-6551, or stopping by the library.

Participants will blindly taste the different pizzas and vote on the best pizza in town.

The following pizzerias have already signed up to have their offerings tested:
  • AJ's Pizza
  • Big Daddy's Pizza
  • Boardwalk Pizza Family Fun Center
  • Cutillo's Restaurant
  • Giovanni's Pizza and Restaurant
  • Guiseppe's Pizzeria
  • Icehouse Deli & Steaks
  • Little Italy Pizzeria
  • Mannino's Pizzeria
  • Papa John's Pizza
  • Parma Pizza
  • Sal's Pizza Box II
  • Santina's Kitchen
  • Tornetta's Pizzeria
  • Valentino Restaurant, Pizzeria & Catering
  • Woogies Wood-Fired BBQ


  1. From that list I predict there will be a 16-way tie for last.

  2. Mike's Brick Oven is the best by far ... Hopefully they enter :).

  3. I enjoy Little Italy,very good!

  4. The old Ramble Inn was the best.Little Italy made a good sicilian. Atillioio's in the North End was good. I'll really date myself by saying that Dell's Pizza on High Street was my all time favorite. It's been some 20 years since I've had a slice of anyones pizza from Pottstown. Good luck to all.

  5. I like Redners frozen pizza best

  6. I don't know who will win but I know who would be last. Mikes brick oven pizza. More like brick pizza yuck. Poor customer service. Late deliveries. Don't know how they even stay in business


  8. Great review buddy! There are so many Pizzerias in Pottstown, I think the AJ's Pizza is better than any other, If you ever visit myu town Frankfort, IL, then visit Palermo's of 63rd..
