Best places for Pizza around Philadelphia and the Manyunk Arts Festival | FYI Philly
From old staples in South Philly to a new vegan shop in Center City, we're scooping the scene for the best pies in town.

Angelo's is South Philly's new home for amazing pizza

Karen Rogers takes us to South Philadelphia for a look inside the new home for Angelo's Pizzeria. The Best of Philly winner for pizza in 2017 recently moved from their Haddonfield, New Jersey location and set up shop in the Bella Vista neighborhood. Owner Danny DiGiampietro tells us the key to his success and how he manages to turn a pizza into a work of art.

We visit a husband and wife shop on a mission to serve good food and the community.

Stina Pizzeria where the mission is to serve good food and the community

At the just-opened Stina, the Pizzeria title is just as much about the vibe as it is about the food on the menu. A portion of sales will benefit local non-profits. The walls are covered with conversation pieces and the bathroom is destined to become a selfie station.

There's a new shop in Rittenhouse Square serving up all vegan pies that are just as big a hit with the carnivores in the crowd.

We head to New Jersey to connect with the Kitchen Twins, they are just 15 and just released their first cookbook.

Localish Presents: The Kitchen Twins
Since they got aprons and chef hats at age three, these Lawrenceville twins have loved to cook. They started their own blog when they were nine and now have a cookbook called The Teen Kitchen. They shared some recipes with us from their blog and their new book.

Asian Slaw Lettuce Cups (recipe from The Teen Kitchen by Emily and Lyla Allen, The Kitchen Twins)


This is a really pretty salad that's fun to eat because it's sweet, salty, citrusy, creamy, and crunchy-all in the same bite! As salads go, it's also easy to eat-no trying to stuff huge pieces of lettuce in your mouth. We did add lettuce cups to serve it in because it's kind of fun . . . but we're not saying that you should stuff the whole lettuce cup in your mouth, either.

The dressing contains miso, a thick paste made from soybeans, which adds texture and a rich flavor. If you have miso left over, try dissolving it in water and adding it to vegetable soups-it's delicious.

You can easily transform this recipe into an entrée by adding in pieces of rotisserie chicken, diced cooked shrimp, or tofu. As an entrée, it serves 2 to 3 with some rice on the side.

To make the dressing, add the sesame oil, olive oil, water, miso, lime juice, honey, sesame seeds, and salt to a bowl. Stir vigorously until the miso is thoroughly blended in. Set aside. (You can make this dressing 2 days ahead, and the leftovers will keep for 2 more days.)

To make the salad, toss the cabbage, carrots, sunflower seeds, avocado, mandarin oranges, cucumber, and cilantro together in a large bowl.

Add 14 cup of the dressing to the salad and toss so everything is coated.

Put 1 lettuce leaf on each plate, topping it with the salad. After plating the salad, sprinkle it lightly with salt and pepper.


2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon white miso

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon sesame seeds

18 teaspoon salt


1 cup shredded purple cabbage

2 cups peeled, shredded carrots (about 2 12 peeled carrots)

12 cup shelled sunflower seeds

1 avocado, peeled and diced into 14-inch pieces

12 cup canned mandarin oranges, drained

1 cup 14-inch diced English cucumber (about 12 cucumber)

14 cup packed fresh cilantro, finely chopped

4-6 large lettuce leaves (Boston lettuce or iceberg)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Amazing Avocado Artichoke Hummus


1 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained if from a can
1/2 of a ripe avocado
2/3 cup diced artichoke hearts (you can get these in a can)

1/4 cup washed and loosely chopped flat leaf parsley
1/3 + 2 TBS cup extra virgin olive oil
couple pinches salt (or to taste)
2 cranks pepper


1. Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor.

2. Blend and just like that you are ready to serve!

3. Serve with tortilla chips, veggies, sliced apple or put on bread or pita as a sandwich spread

Anytime Waffles

MAKES 12 WAFFLES PREP TIME: 8 minutes COOK TIME: 12 minutes

While waffles are mostly a breakfast food, we enjoy them just as much for lunch or dinner with savory toppings-either open-faced or as a regular sandwich. We offer a variety of options below for savory or sweet waffles.

By the way, as we were developing this recipe, we decided that waffle is just the weirdest word. Say it over and over again, and you'll see what we mean.

Preheat the oven to 200F. Melt the butter and let it cool a bit.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, and milk.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the mixture to the wet batter and mix in the melted butter.

Grease a waffle iron. When it is hot, ladle 14 to 13 cup of batter into each waffle area. Close and cook for about 4 minutes each. Using a fork or tongs, carefully transfer the cooked waffles to a baking sheet and place in the warm oven until you're ready to serve them. Add a topping from the options below and serve.

If you have leftovers, you can freeze your extra waffles. Just put them in a zip-top plastic bag after they have cooled down. They will keep in the freezer for up to a month. Pop them in the toaster or oven to reheat them.

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 eggs

1 tablespoon sugar

1 3/4 cups milk
