The Casanova pizza at Federal, is one of our favorites.
There's nothing better than a pizza after days of stuffing yourself with Thanksgiving dinner and leftovers. You're in luck, because Chow Bella spent the past year scouring the Valley to find the best pizzerias.

Here's a list worth saving for when you need a great pizza, no matter where you are in metro Phoenix.

Best Neighborhood Pizza, Central Phoenix: Federal Pizza

Who to bring on board when you're planning a lively new pizza joint? If you're restaurateurs Craig DeMarco and Lauren Bailey (Postino, Windsor, Joyride Taco House, as well as Federal Pizza), it's Valley master baker MJ Coe. Featuring a light and crispy outer crust with a thick, puffy edge, a slightly chewy interior, and a harmonious flavor balance of toppings, the best of Coe's 12 pizza creations might be the Casanova, a robust mix of flavors and textures courtesy of prosciutto, dates, ricotta, arugula, and Pecorino cheese.

Best Neighborhood Pizza, Downtown Phoenix: Pomo Pizzeria Napoletana

Earlier this year, this longtime favorite in Scottsdale opened a second location in the former home of Sens Asian Tapas and Sake Bar, further strengthening downtown as a true destination for authentic gourmet pizza. Pomo's secret to success is its adherence to pizza-making guidelines set forth by the Italian trade organization Associazone Verace Pizza Napoletana. Read more here.
