Corropolese Bakery & Deli: Taste a Local Institution

March 3, 2015 3:27 pm

If you have been to a party, reunion, reception or event in Norristown or parts surrounding, you have probably eaten a slice of Corropolese’s pizza. If you haven’t, either you showed up late to the party or the hosts weren’t locals! The signature square-cut pizzas at this local institution are the tomato pie, spinach pie, and bruschetta pizza. Pick up a quarter sheet (eight slices) on your way home from work, or a full sheet (30 slices) for the next group event or gathering you’re planning.

Aside from pizza, Corropolese bakes a variety of breads, rolls, and pastries for both wholesale and retail customers and also offers a full-service deli and hoagie counter. Regulars especially recommend the meatball and Italian hoagies and the house-made coleslaw. For those with a sweet tooth, Corropolese’s cakes, cookies, baklava, and cannoli all earn the praise of Montgomery County locals.

Stop by to see (and smell and taste) what the neighborhood is talking about.
