11 Best Places to Eat Pizza in Metro Phoenix

Phoenix New Times

JUNE 22, 2019

La Piazza PHX (and La Piazza al Forno, its sister restaurant in downtown Glendale) is a longtime staple of the Valley’s Neapolitan pizza scene. The Glendale location of La Piazza was something of a trailblazer in bringing wood-fired, artisanal pizza to the Valley, and the Phoenix location has brought top-notch pizza to the downtown lunch crowd. The restaurant is a certified Verace Pizza Napoletana restaurant, which means you can depend on a reliably crispy-chewy crust, and the full-bodied flavor of San Marzano tomatoes. A highlight is the Dolce Diavolo, a spicy-sweet marriage of sopressata, Calabrian chiles, fresh basil, and a touch of Arizona honey. It’s really one of the more distinctive and unique pies in downtown.
