Central Phoenix (& Other Locations)
THE best place for deep-dish pizza in Phoenix
If you’re looking for a traditional Chicago-style pizza, look no further than Spinato's (or, like, Chicago if that’s closer). Ken Spinato opened the first location way back in '74, and since then it’s become a family business with multiple Valley locations. Fortunately, despite all its growth over the past 40 years, it’s kept its quality, which is no small feat -- largely thanks to the Mamma Spinato’s "Signature" Fresh Spinach, topped with fresh spinach, tomatoes, garlic, mozzarella, and a secret blend of spices.
A go-to for gelato, a bakery, wine, and -- oh yeah -- great pizza
La Grande is a charming blend of a grocery store, pizzeria, bakery, and gift shop. The pizzas are unsurprisingly great (even that Avocado Pizza), and they’re also unique in that most of them can be ordered vegan or with a gluten-free crust.
