HELP, I can't find decent pizza in Chester County!!!!

I have lived in Chester county for 4 years now and I still have not found any decent pizza. I live in Honey Brook, right near Lancaster county. I think we've tried everything in HoneyBrook; Coatesville; Downingtown and Exton areas. I'm hoping someone knows of a hidden gem that I haven't found yet. I'm originally from Delaware county, and I know of lots of suggestions from other Chowhounds for there, but haven't heard of many for Chester or even Lancaster Counties. Help a pizza lover out, PLEASE!!!!!

  1. I'm a fan of K&G Pizza myself - they do a good deep dish and the BEST stromboli. All of my friends comment on how Culinary Deliveries has great pizza. Riggtown has a good honey mustard chicken, but sans that I think they cater to the 2am crowd if you catch my drift.

    Good luck!

      Thanks so much for the recommendations, where are these places located. I love stromboli, what kind is good? So could you tell me where the K&G pizza and Culinary Deliveries are located. The 2 am crowd is too young for me.

      1. re: jficco

        Both are in West Chester. K&G is on the corner of 5 Points Road and West Chester Pike. Culinary is in the borough on Gay Street. Neither are mind-blowing but I'd say they are probably two of your better options in WC. As for other parts of Chester County I really can't speak from experience though.

        As for stromboli at K&G they are all good - I either get the italian (genoa, capicola, mmmmm) or really anything covered in meat and cheese. So horrible for me yet so good.

          I've given up on good pizza in CC and make my own. I live in the northern part of Chester County. Its the only pizza my husband will eat now. Its great when my basil is growing like a tree. I use Wolfgang Pucks dough recipe and bake on a pizza stone.

        Try Ron's Schoolhouse in Lionville. Their pizzas, particularly their unique "oval" creations, are to die for. The dough is some of the tastiest I have had anywhere in the country and the toppings are always fresh and plentiful.

      3. Riggtown may have a great late night crowd, but they also have a crowd beginning at 7 am with all kinds of people - families, businesses and students. The honey mustard is so good because most of the stuff they make is home-made. Don't knock it til you've tried it.

        1. Not too far, and a bit more upscale in Kennet Square is Savano Bistro. Woodfired pizzas are authentically delicious as is the chefs seasonal bistro menu. Well worth the trip and money!

            1. That's because it doesn't exist. At least in West Chester. K&G, Riggstown and Culinary are below mediocre. Ron's is ok but not worth the drive from Honey Brook. Buy a pie at Clanks in Marcus Hook and heat it up at home.

                Really need to disagree here. I grew up on K&G and it is a nice thick slice of pizza. Riggtown honey mustard is really good, but with a 2am rush I sometimes feel they know (and take advantage of) the fact that they can serve mediocrity.

                Say what you will, but to me a good piece of pizza is simple - not filet mignon. I guess I'm not too picky when it comes to dough, sauce and cheese, sorry. :(
