At RailLife, we absolutely love pizza. If anyone could be called a connoisseur of pizza, it would be "Mr. Rail Life" himself. So, when I came across this list of the Top 10 Pizza Places in the area (from the Calendar section of the Arizona Republic) by Howard Seftel, Dining Critic, I felt compelled to share it with you.
#10 Pizza a Metro, Phoenix
#9 Humble Pie, Scottsdale
#8 Classic Italian Pizza, Tempe
#7 La Grande Orange Pizzeria, Phoenix
#6 Vito’s Pizza, Glendale
#5 Grazie Pizzeria and Winebar, Scottsdale
#4 La Piazza al Forno, Glendale
#3 Cibo, Phoenix
#2 Patsy Grimaldi’s Coal Brick-Oven Pizzeria, Scottsdale
and the pizza place that Mr. Seftel titled the #1 top spot for pizza is …
Pizzeria Bianco also has two sister-locations, Pane Bianco, located at 4404 N Central Ave, Phoenix – a very short walk from the Campbell & Central Light Rail Station (next door to Lux Coffee) and Bar Bianco located at 609 E Adams St, Phoenix.
While all of these pizzerias sound really good, admittedly I’ve only been to Grazie Pizzeria and I think their food is superb. While not serviced by the light rail line (at least not yet), their downtown Scottsdale location exudes a warm & friendly atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor seating.
