Downtown Glendale: 10 don't-miss spots
Justin Piazza single-handedly put Glendale on the Valley pizza map with La Piazza Al Forno. His pizza has received a certificate of authenticity from Verace Pizza Napoletana, an Italian trade association that promotes Naples' strict traditional pizza standards. (Only two other Arizona pizzerias qualify.) The restaurant serves crispy wood-fired pizzas like the classic Margherita and pasta like baked four-cheese ravioli. Dessert offerings include Italian almond-wine cake and hot zeppolis, deep-fried dough dusted with powdered sugar.
