I'd challenge anyone in the world, including the entire
Country of Italy, all the culinary critics, including the James Beard Society, Micheline 5 stars, Bravo Top Chef's, Food Network, Emeril, dig up Julia Child, my idol, to find a better pizza pie anywhere on God's Green Earth.
In fact, I'll blog Adam Richmond & Guy Fieri to hit Frank's..
I ain't a kidding.
Serious as a heart attack.
God Rest Frank.
He deserves his just dues, post mortum.

This pizza shop is, by far, the best that there is anywhere on this planet Earth. Call me crazy, but I would much rather have their pies over any other pizza place. It is so worth the drive. Also, when I get the opportunity, I'll snag some friends of mine so that they too can become fans of this excellent pizza pie. All I ask of Frank's Pizzeria at this point is that they stay in business so that I (and many other fans) will keep coming back. Keep it up guys! Great job!

This town has the greatest pizza in this small of an area. Now if we could just get a tax collector that knew how to run her business instead of sticking her nose in everyones business we would moving in the right direction. Joann Dunn Crano needs to be voted out and we need to put a tax collector back in like the Dunn's that run the erie insurance down the block. It would be a plus to not have to go there 3 or 4 times to pay the taxes because she is out for coffee or lunch with a sign in the window. Nows the time to vote in a new tax collector.
Frank's pizza has been a constant in Ambridge for many, many years; everything about it is unique. The sauce is fantastic, the seasonings perfect and the crust and pepperoni delectable, even the preparation (cheese under sauce) is great - no long strings or sloppy drips. If you've never had it, you must try it - if you've already had it, you know what I'm talking about! Great prices also!
It's hard to beat the take-out pizza choices in Ambridge - Frank's is #1 and Police Station is #1A; both fantastic, both very different!

I love Frank's pizza!! It is by far the best pizza in the Pittsburgh area. The prices are cheap, the owners and workers (all family) are warm and welcoming, and the pizza is simply delicious. The crust is perfect, and I love the old-world Italian style. It's great plain, but every now and then I get a craving for extra cheese and their delicious thick sliced pepperoni. I've been eating at Frank's forever (my family lives just down the block), and I would recommend it to anyone.

I have been eating Frank's Pizza for 25 years and I miss the fact that I can't have a slice whenever I want anymore. Living 2300 miles away puts a damper on that, and there is no ""standout"" pizza shop anywhere in the blustery desert. The first thing I do when I travel back home to Baden is go to Police Station/Pizza House and get 3 slices there, then head directly up to Frank's and order a pie there. I eat the Police Station/Pizza House first because its an excellent pizza as well, and a staple in the Ambridge community. I then get the Frank's pie with pep on it, because you know what they say.....SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST! There were many times as a youngster that Frank's Pizza eased my hangovers and satisfied my munchie cravings. Those days are over for me, but even without ""help"", my mouth still waters every time I think about Pizza in Ambridge!

My friends and I went to Frank's Pizza last Friday. We drove from my house in Mt. Lebanon, about twenty minutes from Frank's, it was worth it. My friends and I are huge Fiori Pizza fans, but we needed to try Frank's. We ordered two pies, one plain and one pepperoni, they were fantastic. I ate the pepperoni one and it tasted great, the pepperoni's tasted so good. I also liked the sauce on top of the cheese, even though it was a bit messy. All and all I think Frank's is great, but I still think Fiori's is better. Frank's pepperoni and prices are definitely better than Fiori's. However, Fiori's has Frank's beat in the sauce and crust category. The drive, every once in awhile, is worth it. I would not drive there every time I wanted pizza, like I would Fiori's. Great pizza none the less!

I visited a friend in pittsburg to watch the steelers get creamed, well we ended up at Frank's Pizzeria and I have to say I have never tasted anything like it!!! Now, I've had pizza in Italy and I'm a New Yorker where we have the best pizza in America, or so I thought.... FRANK'S PIZZERIA IS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!! Fresh ingrediants.... cheeze under the sauce???....BRILLIANT!!!!... Believe me when I tell you I was actually going fight with my buddy over the last slice...then we realized why fight when we can just by another pie... AND WE DID!!!.... Thanks Frank... you made my trip worth while.... oh, an it doesn't hurt to have a cute curly haired brunette working behind the counter!!!!

This family-owned pizza shop is only open on evenings Tuesday - Saturday, but it is worth a special trip. No seating - only to go - but as kids we used to enjoy it on some of the steps of adjoining properties. Homemade sauce and dough and only the best ingredients. Sauce goes over the cheese so you don't burn the cheese (why ruin good cheese). Also, most toppings go on after cooking and the pepperoni is the best. Why cook the pepperoni to runny, greasy reminants of a great topping, anyway. I usually get it with x-tra cheese - just melted on top a bit afterward to preserve the fine cheese taste - and pepperoni. Pizza this good for such a terrific price, makes Frank's number one in the Pittsburgh area, and the best I've tasted outside a couple of spots in NYC. This family has been making their home made pizza for over 50 years, and it is still as good as I remember way back then.
