The illuminated wine bottle wall, unique hanging lighting, and coal-fired stove all go a long way in creating an unforgettable ambiance at Pitch Pizzeria in Scottsdale. Patrons love showing up for the breakfast offerings, but when it comes to the best pizza in Phoenix, options like the Thai Pie, Dos or Tres Peps, authentic margherita, and basil pesto chicken pie are what particularly stand out. Patrons who really want to get into the spirit of this place can also grab a LimeBike from the bicycle racks out front!

Specialty daily menus combine with the everyday compact menu at The Collins Small Batch Kitchen to create a memorable dining experience. The baby blue seats at the bar and soft lighting create a relaxing environment, but tourists often get the biggest kick out of taking Facebook photos in front of the large Arizona flag. The pizzas are wood-fired, and they include the Angry Bird, margherita, pepperoni + olive, and the Atta Boy -- a local favorite. Gluten-free dough is available, so everyone can enjoy the best pizza in Phoenix here!

The overhead lighting in Pubblico Italian Eatery looks like a first-place science fair project of exploding atoms. The sleek and unique artistry on the wall combines with this to create a fully contemporary environment. This hip atmosphere is even better thanks to the fact there are gluten-free options available for their wood-fired pizzas. Pies include the eponymous Pubblico, a seafood pizza featuring shrimp, calamari, scallops, and more, the traditional pepperoni, and the authentic margherita. They do well in the best pizza in Phoenix category, but it’s the entire dining experience that really stands out.

Unique greenery, muted colors, and large amounts of natural light make the dining area of NM Café at Neiman Marcus a calming experience. Of course, many people would prefer the bar or outdoor seating area. Regardless of this personal preference, there are very few who don’t believe this eatery has one of the best pizzas in Phoenix. In reality, it has to be good -- because they only offer one. The smoked salmon pizza features goat cheese, baby greens, and dill. The seasonally inspired soups and caprese plate are great starting points, but everyone should try this salmon-focused pie at least once.

Scottsdale’s Museum of the West and the Main Street Arts District are both near Buca di Beppo, so it’s an obvious choice for individuals who are out and about and looking for the best pizza in Phoenix. They have a large selection of pies -- ranging from the spicy arrabbiata to the pizza con formaggio -- but the Italian flatbread will also catch the attention of pizza aficionados. The authentic Italian décor combined with delicious cuisine options will make this a night to remember.

Guests at Pasta Brioni experience a unique atmosphere that includes everything from interesting vintage artwork to signed electric guitars. Of course, the eatery is far less imposing from the outside. One simple sign lets potential patrons know that they’re only steps away from some of the best pizza in Phoenix. The owners pride themselves on an environment that’s similar to the family-run Italian eateries back East, and this includes Rat Pack music playing throughout the day. Patrons enjoy stopping by during lunch for the four cheese, margherita, and Salsicia pizza options.

It’s rare for one to hear about a West Coast twist on classic Italian fare, but that’s exactly what Parma Italian Roots brings to the table. Everything inside -- from the seating and lighting to the huge overhanging mirrors -- screams contemporary. The cuisine offered, however, has a distinct flavor that could come from nowhere other than Italy herself. The pizzas are wood-fired and include the classic margherita, the Dal Giardino and -- a little something for those who eat outside of the box -- the White Pie.

Those looking for a truly unique way to get the best pizza in Phoenix cannot afford to miss out on The Artichoke Grill Restaurant at The Culinary Arts Department of Scottsdale Community College. It’s one of two restaurants at the school where student chefs provide enticing and delectable dishes. They might not have their degrees yet, but one look at all the offerings will put every doubtful mind at ease. There’s not a huge array of pizza to choose from, but there is a flatbread pizza du jour offered daily. There are options for meat lovers and vegetarians alike!

Clean eating is the name of the game at Base Pizzeria. Their ingredients are locally sourced in a sustainable fashion, and while it may surprise some naysayers, the best pizza in Phoenix might actually be organic thanks to this hot spot. Three Aussies brought their concept right to the middle of Arizona, and the locals love them for it. Their pie offerings include The Piggy, The Veggie, The Pesto Chicken, and many more selections. Those who are particularly adventurous should also try the El Diablo.

If one were to imagine a casual sports bar in their head, there’s a good chance that they’d envision the bar area at The Macintosh. Of course, the mason jar candles and fresh produce grown on-site create a different feel. The combination of these two worlds makes for a fantastic experience. Of course, it’s important to note that patrons won’t find the best pizza in Phoenix here. That's because their fare leans more towards baby back ribs and pork chops. What they do have, however, is the Pizza Port Swamis IPA. It’s not like drinking a pizza, but it’s definitely worth at least one visit.

Local seafood lovers have undoubtedly visited Ocean 44 on at least one occasion. The décor -- which includes globe lighting, posh seating, and extravagant lighting -- is nothing if not upscale. Of course, one might wonder how they’d get the best pizza in Phoenix at an eatery that defines itself as seafood reinvented. In actuality, they only offer a single pie: the salmon hashbrown pizza. It features goat cheese creme fraiche and cucumber caviar micro greens, so it really is a one-of-a-kind dish. One slice has proven effective at bringing patrons back to Ocean 44 over the long haul.

Located across from the Waterfront district, the Yard House takes popular American dishes and infuses them with global flavors. On top of that, they seem to have a never-ending selection of draft beers. Honestly, what’s the best pizza in Phoenix if it doesn’t have a delicious beer at its side? The décor is simple, but it’s pretty cool to be able to see all the kegs through a glass wall. Pizza options include the margherita, BBQ chicken, and The Carnivore. Ingredients such as smoked gouda, fresh basil, and crimini mushrooms make these pies stand out among the competition.
