The restaurant was an immediate success. Pete’s Famous Pizza became a Philadelphia favorite from birth. In 1981, Pete’s Famous Pizza was awarded the highly coveted “Best Pizza of Philadelphia” by Philadelphia Magazine. Lines formed out the door, deliveries were constant and tables were always occupied. Pete’s Famous Pizza is proud to have such rich history in the Logan Square Community and to still be a neighborhood favorite.
Pete’s number one priority in crafting food was (and always will be) quality. Our dough consists of only the finest ingredients and made daily on premises. The phrase, “Hot stuff to go” is a distinguishing Pete’s Famous Pizza term. Pete wanted to ensure that every customer would receive their delivery hot so he purchased pickup trucks with ovens installed on the back. If you look closely at the Pete’s Famous Pizza delivery sign, hanging above the restaurant, you can see a picture of these trucks.
