Where To Get a Slice for National Pizza Day Around Royal Athena

With the area still slowly reopening, local businesses could use our support now more than ever, prompting many locals to dedicate at least one day a week to order from a neighborhood spot. And on Sept. 5, you have more reason than ever, as it’s National Cheese Pizza Day. While any day of the week is a good day for pizza, especially with all the great options near your Royal Athena apartment, on this occasion, you can indulge without guilt, knowing you’re celebrating a pseudo holiday all while giving back to the local business community.

With so many award-winning pizzerias near your Royal Athena apartment, however, how do you narrow down your choices? If it’s a family-owned shop you’re after, Mama’s Pizzeria is your best bet. The restaurant is one of Bala Cynwyd’s longest-running, independently owned shops—in business in the area since the 1950s. While Mama’s, just 1.5 miles from your Royal Athena apartment, has developed quite a reputation as having some of the best cheesesteaks in the Philly region (try them yourself!), their pizza also has its own following.

The shop offers pizza by the slice or as whole pies, with dozens of toppings to choose from, including some unusual selections like clams and anchovies. Create your own pie, or Mama’s is known for its own creative, gourmet pies, served in generous portions. Bring your appetite for selections like double-stuffed steak and pepperoni pizza, double-decker pies brimming with layers and layers of veggies and meats, or the square Sicilian. If you really have an appetite, round out your meal with sandwiches, salads, strombolis and lots of apps.

Pizza is often our go-to when it comes to ordering dinner, but at Mama’s Pizzeria, the meal is anything but ordinary—making it the perfect fit for your celebratory show of support.
