I don’t know about you, but the one thing that kept me sane during the pandemic (and the pandemic that is currently in its second year, but I digress) is pizza. How I love pizza, because on some days after covering hard-hitting Montco news and events and Covid-19 updates, the one thing I really wanted- was just pizza. So I’m looking at you, Royersford pizza places!

I live in Mont Clare, the very edge of Montgomery County, and well, we don’t have a pizza joint. We have the Eagle’s Nest Deli for sandwiches and Produce Junction for fruits and veggies, but as far as pizza goes, I need to stretch a bit out of my neighborhood.

I can head across the river into Chester County, which has great pizza. Usually, though, I reach out in Royersford where I grew up and grab pies at several of my favorite shops.

Detroit-style pizza from Giovanni’s Pizzeria in Royersford.

Royersford is no stranger to good pizza joints and has experienced a revitalization in places to nosh, but today, I am focused on pizza.

Fabulous mozzarella cheese, thinner crust, excellent sauce, not too sweet, pepperoni, full of oregano and basil—you know what I’m talking about. I know Montco has so many fabulous pizza places, and today we are starting with Rofo.

Here are few of my favorite Royersford pizza places:

Giovanni’s Pizza & Restaurant (located at 466 Main St, Royersford, in the old Rofo post office, 610-948-3693). Giovanni’s is where I go when I want to sit down and enjoy specialty pizzas.

Currently on their menu is the Detroit-style pizza. This one-size only 10×14” pizza is made on blue steel pans made with brick cheese and covered with sauce on top plus a sprinkle of Grana Padano cheese.

Don’t miss this pizza, only available for call-ahead on the weekend. Try their family-style pasta specials, too.

It’s also a BYOB! Bring your own bottle and relax.

Rossi’s Pizza, in the old Famous Mr D’s location (located at 301 N. Lewis Road, Park Towne Plaza in Royersford, 610-792-1974) was where I grew up getting pizza. Now it’s Rossi’s Pizza! It’s a fun place to get great Italian comfort food. My parents get pizza from Rossi’s all the time.

This pizza joint offers thin-crust, deep-dish & Sicilian pies, burgers, and fries, plus Italian favorites like Baked Ziti and Chicken Parm.

Palermo’s Pizza (Located at 70 Buckwalter Road at Limerick Square Shopping Center in Royersford, 610-948-4926 )where we grab pizza a couple times a month.

It’s easy to order, they are super-nice, and a great price. Thinner crust, a subtly sweet sauce, all covered over with fine cheeses equal a nice slice indeed. Also located in Blue Bell. Use the Slice app to order!

Dimitri’s Pizza (located at 326 N Lewis Road in Royersford, 610-792-3276) where family recipes and home-cooked pastas equal a fabulous Italian meal to awaken your tastebuds.

Enjoy traditional pizzas, wings, specialty garlic knots, sautéed perogies, mussels in white or red sauce, and so much more, so go hungry!
