Santuccis- Philadelphia

Bri and I stopped at this south side location on our way out of town. We shared a small pie with sausage. The Sicilian-esque slices were tasty in their rectangular shape. The sauce was a very basic sweet sauce with no chunks of tomato. We were told the sausage was homemade, but it didn’t appear to be true.

Great sample of pizza in Philly but, as always, I’ll be itching to try more pies when I visit again!! Continue reading Santuccis- Philadelphia
