Tucson may be a long way from the pizza capitals of Napoli, Chicago, and New York, but that doesn't mean you can't find great pizza in the Old Pueblo. After all, Tucson has a large and diverse population of East Coast transplants, which means there is a demand for high quality and authentic pizza pies.
For deep and hearty pizza, try Rocco's Little Chicago, where you might need a hand cart just to carry out your deep-dish pies out to the car.
Looking for gourmet pizza that hits all the right notes? Try Magpie's Gourmet Pizza, a long-time local favorite. And for great pizza that manages to be both delicious and eco-friendly, nothing beats Brooklyn Pizza, where a solar oven helps pump out hand-made thin crust pizza pies.
One of the newest pizzerias in town is also one of the most popular: Pizzeria Bianco, featuring made-from-scratch pies topped with the freshest house-made mozzarella, home-grown herbs and other locally grown toppings. There is sometimes a line at this hip pizzeria, but Bianco's famous pizza is worth the wait.
Our number one pick for mouth-watering pizza is Scordato's, featuring artisanal pies designed by venerable local chef Daniel Scordato. The pizzas are topped with imported Italian meats and cheeses, as well as locally sourced ingredients for maximum freshness.
Anyway you slice it, Tucson is a great pizza town.
