Pizza isn't a business at LaScala’s Birra. It is art - it is a way of life. We're honored to have them in our pizza family and their amazing pizza at Pizzadelphia Fest on June 15 at the Navy Yard. Get your tickets before they're gone!

A new addition to the vibrant pizza scene in the Delaware Valley, LaScala’s Birra is riding the flavor wave of chic creative artisan pizzas and craft beers. Located on Passayunk Ave in South Philadelphia, LaScala’s also has a sister shop across the Delaware river in Pennsauken, NJ, serving up the same signature pizzas to two seperate states.

LaScala’s has three different groups providing unique types of pies - Red Pie, White Pie, and Birra Pie. Red Pies feature pizzas such as the timeless Margherita or the “Gabagool”, a feisty creation including spicy capicola, mozzarella, cured tomatoes, and arugula. LaScala’s White Pies feature some seriously interesting pizzas - specialities like Pear & Gruyere, Truffle, or Roasted Duck. Where the Red Pies seem traditional and White Pies flex LaScala’s creativity, the Birra Pies are the classic modern takes on American pizzas, including pies such as Buffalo Chicken, Mac & Cheese, and Brussel Sprout. Yum!
