Hoagie Room @ Pizzeria Beddia

Pizzeria beddia first opened in 2013 as a two-man, takeout only place with no website, no phone, no slices and only made 40 pizzas a night. if you wanted a pie you had to physically show up and place your order with john walker and wait for joe beddia to make your pie. it quickly because one of my favorite pizzas ever along with tacconelli’s. that is, until bon appetit crowned them the “best pizza in america” and pretty much ended any chance of eating their pizza again, unless you wanted to wait four hours in line for a pizza.

They closed in 2018 and opened up pizzeria beddia 2.0 in 2019, a fully blown restaurant with a bar, table service, phone number and they even take reservations. in the back is the “hoagie room”, a small private room where a party of six can experience a hoagie “omakase” from john walker aka “hoagie wan kenobi” along with pizza of course.

The hoagies were excellent, especially on the freshly baked sesame-seeded rolls. my favorites were the italian (the best i’ve ever had), tuna and even the veggie hoagie was delicious. the pies were just as good as i remembered with a flavor and crispy crust. @Chowseeker1999, @TheCookie, @Sgee

Hi @PorkyBelly,

I am disappointed you only finished 4 whole pizzas. Where did you go for after-dinner-dinner? :wink: :smile: (j/k)

This looks amazing! I can tell from the pics alone the crust and creation of the pies are something special. I’ve bookmarked it, hopefully I can try it the next time I’m passing through the area.

The Italian hoagie (and all of them) sound great as well. :slight_smile:

Yes Please!

In Philly for work and I made a reservation for 4 people at Laser Wolf. Was super excited but then there were 2 extra people added. They couldn’t accommodate 6 so we opted for Pizzeria Beddia instead. The salads were all amazing. Caesar, roasted vegetables in miso dressing and burrata with cranberry sauce and pumpkin seeds. Excellent dressing on each individual salad.

Pizza is top notch. Well baked. Great sauce and cheese. They said these were 16” pizzas cut up into 8 slices. I may or may not have had 6 slices. We ordered 4 pies but I only took pictures of these 2.

Leave room for the soft serve. Excellent creamy texture. Only had 2 flavors, espresso and sweet cream (basically vanilla), but that was some serious ice cream.


do those 2 people know how much they own you for having you cancel a resy at laser wolf?


Very nice people and friends but the pain it caused to hit cancel on Resy will haunt me. I’ve never been to Laser Wolf.

Damn dude that is a huge loss.

I really need to get to Laser Wolf and Zahav this year.

Beddia is great pizza! You missed out on the tomato pie.

If you are still in Philly try Angelo’s Pizzeria South Philly……the upside down square, round pie, cheesesteaks, and hoagies are some of the best. Honestly that is my number one rec for Philly.
Hit up Sarcones next door for tomato pie and the heavenly seeded roll. That seeded roll should be with every hoagie and cheesesteak in the country!
