Don’t miss out on these summer pizza pies in Philly

Summer is here and while we’re all about barbecues and burgers when the weather heats up, pizza is a pretty great option to, especially with special seasonal pies offered by Philadelphia restaurants. From gluten-free options to pizzas that are downright peachy, here are four summer pizza pies that we’re dying to try this summer.

Bufala mozzarella and San Marzano tomatoes

Enjoying the sites in Old City? Stop by Capofitto at 2nd and Chestnut to fuel the rest of your journey with their delicious wood-fired pizza. For the summer, they have a Bufala mozzarella and San Marzano tomato pizza on the menu that also comes with green meadow farm yellow tomatoes, ricotta salata and fresh basil on top. Still hungry? Treat yourself to their award-winning gelato. Capofitto, 223 Chestnut St.,

Gluten-free mushroom and goat cheese

Just because you lead a gluten-free lifestyle doesn’t mean you need to miss out on pizza! The folks over at SLiCe have debuted a special gluten-free mushroom and goat cheese pie for the summer months, that’s also topped with portobello mushrooms, baby spinach and red onions. For added security, the pizza crust is cooked in a separate pan to avoid contamination. SLiCe, 1180 S. 10th St., 1740 Sansom St., 431 E. Girard Ave.,

Feta and Tomato

So you’re not gluten-free but still want a summer pizza pie at SLiCe? No need to worry, they have a second seasonal pie available with all the gluten you could want! The feta and tomato pizza also comes topped with olive oil, garlic, mozzarella, kalamata olives and fresh basil. Mangia! SLiCe, 1180 S. 10th St., 1740 Sansom St., 431 E. Girard Ave.,


Pizzeria Vetri in Rittenhouse is celebrating summer with the debut of their Porchetta pizza, which comes topped with porchetta (roast pork), peaches, arugula, mozzarella and parmesan. Get a table outside with a glass of white wine and pretend like you’re in Italy for your lunch break. Pizzeria Vetri Rittenhouse, 1615 Chancellor St.,


In the Art Museum area? Pizzeria Vetri has another location there which is spotlighting their own summer pizza — the Zucca. It’s topped with zucchini, summer squash, parmesan, stracciatella and mint for a refreshingly sweet yet savory pizza experience. Burn off the calories running up and down the nearby Rocky steps and you’ll be good to go. Pizzeria Vetri, 1939 Callowhill St.,
