The Best Restaurants in OLD FORGE

The World’s Most Fanatical Pizza Town is a tiny Northeast Pennsylvania village that has proclaimed itself the “Pizza Capital of the World.” Old Forge is a former coal-mining town of about 8,000 which is 45% Italian with most of the residents being descendants of a single town by the name of Felitto, near Naples. Here, you find a unique language where pies are called trays — cooked in square pans — and slices are called cuts. The cheeses are a blend including mozzarella, cheddar, provolone and even American cheese. The sauce often has a heavy onion profile. The red pizzas are a deep-pan style with the sauce on top while the whites are like a Chicago stuffed pizza.
