pizzeria bianco


when we asked for restaurant recommendations before moving out to arizona, one name was consistently mentioned: pizzeria bianco.

an arizona legened, chef chris bianco has won the james beard award for best chef in the southwest and has greatly influenced the artisanal pizza scene.  even our favorite pizza place in los angeles, pizzeria mozza, features chef’s bianco’s ingredients and its head chef nancy silverton has been quoted praising bianco’s pizza as “the best she’s ever had”.

there are two locations to pizzeria bianco in phoenix (a new third in tucson), one location specializes in just the pizza and the second location has a larger menu and features others dishes such as pasta and meats.  we visited the original pizza location:
