Pizza/Italian Delivery in Central Phoenix?

It would seem you can't throw a serial killer in central phx without hitting a pizza joint. After an insanely disappointing delivery last night from Manhattan Pizza (the Manhattan was missing by way of, I suspect, Greece), I'm wondering, do any of these places suck less than most?

I actually quite like Niccolis, but they don't deliver. Pat's Pizza Plus is actually very good as far as I'm concerned, but they only deliver certain hours and the wait is often in the multihour length.

  1. I love Pat's!!! I believe due to Gas price increases they put the certain hour delivery into effect and actually charge an extra 2 dollars. What about Spinato's on 11th and Glendale?

    1. What do you define as central phoenix?

      We get our pizza delivered from Z Pizza on Thomas/3rd Ave.

      It's a franchise out of California, but the local franchisee lives in our neighborhood. They also make pasta, but that's not on the online menu.


      1. I second Z Pizza. It is a chain, but the pizzas are great and we regularly order from them for the office.

        1. does Z deliver? thats what I'm aiming for. love their website though!

          1. Yes they deliver, but they have a limited delivery area. At times they subscribe to the slow food movement, so order before you really reach the point of starvation.

              "so order before you really reach the point of starvation."

              has anyone else mastered that? cause I really haven't.

                My mastery in that art came with having a child. I now have to PLAN meal times. Planning...a novel concept. So if I know kidlet needs to eat no later than 7pm, I'm on the phone with Z no later than 6pm just to be safe.

                Me and the old man, we'll dine at 9:30pm. But those days are gone. I've got a little one tugging at my apron by 6:30pm. It's her starvation I'm concerned with.
