Party. Pizza party.

Here are my top five restaurants for pizza in AZ:

1. Nello's Pizza in Tempe. If you can work at a restaurant for 5 (non-consecutive) years and STILL love the food, that's saying something. Order the F Minus. (Well, don't call it that or they won't know what you're talking about.) It's pepperoni, pineapple, and bacon on their delicious deep-dish crust. And if you're really feeling crazy, add light onions. By the way, you can see an F Minus comic framed and hanging in the waiting area. map

2. Cucina Paradiso in Payson. An unlikely place for a great pizza, but they have the best crust I've ever had. Warning: I heard they may have changed their name. I haven't been there in a while. map

La Grande Orange in Phoenix. They make a pizza and then, if you want, they will crack an egg right on top before the cook it. I call it the good morning pizza. I recently realized that I can crack an egg over just about anything and improve it fifty percent. map

Classic Italian Pizza in Tempe. You can't tell from the front, but this place has some great brick-oven pizza and a nice atmosphere. And it's right next to my barber. Just an interesting fact. map

5. Giovanni Pizza Bistro in Tempe. Don't be fooled by the dollar store and shoe repair business that share the corner with this place. Inside they have delicious Italian food and a romantic atmosphere. (wink!) I've never been there at lunchtime, but I hear they have a good buffet. Oh, and they also have free wireless internet so you can read my blogs while you eat. map

Thanks for the heads up, Tony! You read my mind as I am going to Mesa next week and was wondering if there was any good pizza in the town. By the by, am more concerned with the coffee situation! I am from Seattle so...please God, touch Mesa with your mighty coffee mercies!!!
p.s. LOVE your comics and am hooked! Been spreading the good news of F Minus here at home.

whoa, I totally got the impression you didn't like Classic Italian Pizza.

Perhaps we can get a pie when I come to visit this December.

There's some decent pizza in Orlando, but none of it really compares to pizza I've had in AZ. Go figure.
