jules thin crust pizza

Has anyone tried this restaurant? We are moving to Baederwood and my family loves pizza. We already have tried Trevi in Glenside and it was awesome.

  1. We've been to the one in Doylestown a few times, it's OK, but really more "flatbread" than pizza. If you want actual pizza, there are many better options. Try it and see what you think.

    1. We go to the Jenkintown location fairly often, since my gluten-free husband can eat there. I really like them, the food is always fresh and tasty. I agree, though, that pizza is a bit of a misnomer. It really is more of a flatbread and most of the good toppings are not traditional pizza toppings. So, I would say, if you really want pizza it's not a great option, but if you want fresh, tasty food in a convenient location, it's great.

      1. I liked Trevi fine, but the crust at Jules is (oddly enough) even thinner and more cracker-like than the crust at Trevi. I found it to be on the bland side, too. The toppings are good though. I know it's a chain but I actually much prefer the pizza at Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza in Horsham. Not as many choices and not as large a choice as the other places, but better pizza IMHO.

          I like Anthony's, but don't like burned crust. I don't know if that's just the nature of the coal-fired oven, or if they just tend to overcook it, but most times my crust is burned. And not just a tiny bit.

        2. Been to all three locations and love them all. If you want local, organic food that actually tastes like something, then Jules is your place. It's not traditional pizza but what is anymore?

          1. Not sure what it should be called; I don't think Pizza is it, IMHO. Ok flatbread could be it. Whatever it really is it is quite tasty. However if I am wanting Pizza of any variety, thick, thin, Pan, NY, Chicago; Jules would not do it for me. Lots of choices of toppings to satisfy most tastes, unless you had wanted a pizza pie.

              I totally agree with you Bacchus 101. I enjoyed the "pizza" and they do have lots of topping choices for you including several that are vegetarian. The flatbread pizza is served on a large wooden board. The Doylestown location is on a corner at the south end of town and they have nice outdoor tables with umbrellas for dining al fresco on warm, sunny days. They seem to be very green - cans for trash and separate cans for recycling, which pleased me. I have only been once, but will definitely try again the next time I am in Doylestown at lunchtime.
