Pizza Help Please ... (Scottsdale AZ)

Thank you all for your help re Chinese recs in Phx. I am a SF Bay Area hound in Scottsdale for a couple of more weeks. Would love to get a good carryout/delivery Pizza recommendation somewhere nearby (staying at Acoma & Scottsdale Road). No preference for thin/thick crust, just good crust, fresh ingredients. I tried one place last trip on Scottsdale Rd near Shea (NY Pizza????) but was not particularly impressed. Many thanks ....

  1. NYPD Pizza, bleh. I was there last weekend, and it reaffirmed my dislike of their pizza. For good NY style, I always hit Ray's in that neighborhood. Just a quick drive over to 101 / FLW.

    1. That's <2 minutes from me. Delivery is poor here. You want takeout.

      Consider Picazzos at Frank Lloyd Wright & Scottsdale Rd (drive n on scottsdale rd, turn r onto FLW blvd, make your first right). Fresh ingredients, decent crust,

      The nearest takeout to you is 'Sauce' (shopping plaza on the west side of scottsdale rd, just south of Acoma) but I don't recommend them. Cheap, uninspired, simple northern Italy style.

      Agreed, NYPD fails to impress. You weren't far from goodness, however. If you face NYPD's entrance and turn 120 degrees you will see Oreganos, a more flavorful option and my personal choice. The familiar option is California Pizza Kitchen, west side of Scottsdale Rd 1/2 block south of Shea.

      Welcome back, bon appetito. Twitter #phx (or me, @mahoski) for the rapid response team.

        I really like Oreganos thin crust pizzas. A bit more of a drive would be Humble Pie at Scottsdale and Rose. More of a specialty pizza place and not the huge ones you get at Oreganos, but pretty good.
        For good, basic pizza near you, I'd go with Oreganos.

        Humble Pie
        6149 N Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85250

        Oregano's Pizza Bistro
        7215 E Shea Blvd, Scottsdale, AZ 85260

      2. I'd suggest Redendo's. I've been only to the Fountain Hilsl location but was impressed with what I had there. I think the Scottsdale location has the same owner and menu.

        Redendo's Pizzeria Ristorante
        14700 N Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd, Scottsdale, AZ 85260

        1. Many thanks for all your great suggestions! I'll report back when I make the tour. doc

            Cafe Pino @ Mayo Blvd and Scottsdale Rd is great as well. They don't deliver....but their Pizza's are great! Fresh ingredients....wood fired...yummy!


            Tea Light Cafe
            7000 E Mayo Blvd Ste 1084, Phoenix, AZ 85054

          2. Try Guido's on Scottsdale and Shea. I haven't actually tried their pizza, but they pasta and broasted chicken are great.
