Pizza

When a spot's finest pizza is the margherita, it's either a bad sign, or a really, really good one. In the case of Forno, located in Arizona's historic Glendale neighborhood, it's the latter. These suckers win awards, and it's probably because the chefs follow in Bianco's footsteps by making their own mozzarella, bringing in Italian tomatoes, and cooking the end product in a brick-built, wood-fired oven. The space is down-home casual, but you won't mistake these dining tables for your own, as the Food Network-renown pies smack of uniquely savory, cheesy gourmet.
