Author’s note: This is by no means a comprehensive list of all of the wonderful local pizza places in Tucson. Rather, these are pizzas that we have written about and enjoyed since Edible Baja Arizona began telling the stories of food and culture in Baja Arizona in 2013. Please feel free to share with us your favorite local pizza!
Old Town from Renee’s Organic Oven: Organic Sunizona farms tomatoes, basil, garlic, mozzarella, and parmesan are perfectly layered onto homemade wheat or gluten free pizza dough, then baked to bubbly perfection. 7065 E Tanque Verde Rd.
Margherita from Reilly Craft Pizza and Drink: In classic Neapolitan tradition, the Margherita at Reilly Craft Pizza and Drink starts with a thin crust that is both crunchy and chewy, and is then topped with a robust tomato sauce and just enough fresh mozzarella and basil to make your taste buds sing. 101 E. Pennington St.
Fumo at Falora: Falora’s famous pizza crust is topped with all the fixings for the perfect New York City bagel. Smoked wild-caught Alaskan salmon, light and fluffy chevre, heirloom cherry tomatoes, capers, and red onions create a medley of dominant flavors that sing in perfect harmony. 3000 E Broadway Blvd.
Bone Collector at Serial Grillers: The Bone Collector pizza, named one of the best 50 delivery pizzas in the U.S. by the Food Network, comes loaded with three types of cheese, bites of boneless buffalo wings, scallions, and swirls of both ranch and hot sauce. 5737 E Speedway Blvd.
Calabrese from Time Market: Each large slice of the savory Calabrese pizza is covered with creminelli calabrese, house-made mozzarella, red sauce, garlic, oil cured olives, basil, and grana padano. 444 E University Blvd.
