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 pizza pies.
For deep and hearty pizza, try Rocco's Little Chicago, a long-standing midtown favorite 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, there's Brooklyn Pizza, where a solar oven helps pump out hand-made thin crust pizza pies.
For an upscale dining experience, check out 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.
For New York-style pizza that is crispy, chewy and hits all the right notes, consider a visit to Broadway Pizza Cafe or Empire Pizza Pub.
Anyway you slice it, Tucson is a great pizza town.
