Check out Philly’s Best on Belmont – there’s a sign that states “Welcome to Philadelphia” when you walk in, and I am sure they can explain it to you! Personally, it reminds me a lot of NY pizza. mp/m

The way that I understand it is that Philly-style pizza is a “white pizza”, that is, it contains no sauce. The classic Philly-style is topped with roast beef, mushrooms and cheese, like the pizza version of a Philly cheesesteak.

This is quite a blog post, Spud, as simply Googling “Philadelphia style pizza” or “Philly style pizza” doesn’t turn up much. I did find this lovely image from the Mushroom Council: http://tinyurl.com/axsd8d (click on the image at the top of the page) Thanks Mushroom Council!

Just noticed the bottom of that sign where it says Hoagies [and”> Seafood. What kind of a place sells hoagies, Philly-style pizza AND seafood?! Icky! (no offense, Philly Style Pizza).

According to the Mushroom Council, yes. I agree with Tom, however, that a Philly style pizza in its most basic form is essentially a Philly cheesesteak on pizza bread. The mushrooms, I’m assuming, are an add-on. Kudos to the Mushroom Council for posting a nice pic!
