In more than eight years of Berks County Eats, we have tried some of the best pizza in Berks County. While there are still plenty more to go, these five are the favorites we have found so far:
Nonno Alby’s Brick Oven Pizza – West Reading
Nonno Alby’s was really the first restaurant to bring artisan, brick oven pizza to Berks County, and they still do it better than anyone else. The namesake Nonno Alby’s pizza is probably my favorite around.
The Original Mama’s Pizza – Sinking Spring
The Original Mama’s Pizza has two locations – Sinking Spring and Wyomissing – and neither have ever let us down. Their traditional pies are very good, but we also like their stuffed slices for a quick lunch or dinner.
Romano’s Chicago Style Pizza – Reading
Deep-dish pizza is not the norm in Berks County so when I found Romano’s in 2014, I was very excited. Their Chicago-style pie did not disappoint and remains a favorite of ours to this day.
Sal’s Pizza Style – Birdsboro
Sal’s is your typical neighborhood pizza place, but with exceptional service and the one-of-a-kind pizza Stromboli that everyone should try at least once. The restaurant has new owners as of January 2022 but Sal has been helping them during the transition so we expect to see the same quality moving forward.
Mangia – Mohnton
Mangia is one of one of our favorite restaurants in Berks County period. While we usually get dinners on our visits, we have always enjoyed their pizza – I especially like their brick oven pies like the red and white and margherita.
