SCOTTSDALE, AZ - In Scottsdale, there is no shortage of excellent pizza, from hefty deep-dish pizzas with thick crusts encasing a plethora of sauce and cheese to aromatic pizzas baked in an Italian wood-burning oven. Here are some pizza establishments you can check out in the city.
- Pomo Pizzeria Napoletana
8977 N Scottsdale Rd #504 | 480-998-1366
Pomo Pizzeria Napoletana has been awarded Italy's prestigious VPN (Verace Pizza Napoletana) certification, indicating that its authentic Neapolitan pizza is prepared using traditional methods. A 900-degree imported Italian oven delivers a pizza cooked in 60-90 seconds, creating the famous Neapolitan pie's wet center and charred crust. Order the Bufala Verace with basil, San Marzano tomatoes, and creamy rounds of imported mozzarella di bufala to get a true flavor of Napoli.
- Lamp Wood Oven Pizzeria
8900 E Pinnacle Peak Rd | 480-292-8773
Owner Matt Pilato of LAMP Wood Oven Pizzeria takes pleasure in producing the right texture for his handmade pizzas. The ingredients were picked after lengthy blind tasting sessions, and his pies were baked for three to five minutes at 700 degrees. The Rasta, with peppadew peppers and soppressata, or The Kicker, with Calabrian peppers and fiery Calabrese salame, Pilato's particular favorite.
- Il Bosco Pizza
7120 E. Becker Lane | 480-335-8680
Il Bosco Pizza, a pleasant neighborhood gem with only 24 seats inside and a freshly enlarged terrace for al fresco eating, is where the locals congregate. Il Bosco's dough is prepared from a combination of three flours, and the pizzas are baked in a brick oven that uses white wood from northern Arizona. There are nine Specialita del Giorno that cycle periodically in addition to the menu, such as the renowned Hatch green chile pizza (Carlberg is from New Mexico). Try Valentina for a new take on the pepperoni pizza, which has a sweet and spicy combination of honey and Calabrian chili.
