Since re-launching Joseph’s Pizza Parlor in May 2022 under new ownership (the same owners as Gaul & Co. Malt House in Port Richmond and nearby Rockledge, PA), the expansive, old-school-style pizzeria has been turning out 17-inch classic and specialty pies complete with an assortment of toppings, choice of red or white sauce, and ultra-fresh, premier cheese to boot, available for dine-in and takeaway.

In celebration of National Pizza Day on Thursday, February 9, Joseph’s Pizza Parlor will give FREE small cheese pizzas to the first 100 customers (no toppings allowed and no additional purchase necessary), coinciding with the launch of personal-sized pizza for the first time in the parlor’s more than 50 year run.

Diners have various toppings available for additional fees, such as Mike’s Hot Honey, Calabrian chili paste, ricotta, capicola, and long hots. Joseph’s Pizza Parlor also offers a host of innovative 17-inch specialty pies, with highlights spanning the following:
