11 Best Pizza Spots in Metro Phoenix
|Rosa at Pizzeria Bianco -- and sometimes -- Italian Restaurant|
Pizzeria Bianco/Italian Restaurant
So now we've come full circle, back to the guy who started the artisanal pizza trend in Phoenix. How do I feel about Bianco's ballyhooed product after nine days of eating my weight in pizza everywhere else? Like I've come home. I still love his thin-crust pies. They're always the perfect balance of crustiness, tenderness and chewiness, creatively topped with the best local ingredients Bianco can find. These days, Bianco's newest venture -- Italian Restaurant at Town & Country -- offers three pizzas every day, a Margherita, a Marinara, and a Market pizza -- the Rosa (one of my all-time favorites, $16) the day of my visit. Topped with red onion, pistachios, rosemary, and Parmigiano-Reggiano, it's rich, greasy from the buttery quality of the cheese, and so very good it takes all the restraint I can muster not to polish off the entire thing.
