Grimaldi's Coal Brick-Oven Pizzeria

4000 North Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ - (480) 994-1100
Grimaldi's uses a coal-fired brick oven, just like in the Brooklyn store. The pies are built in much the same way, too, from the good crushed canned tomato (not sauce) right down to the sparse scattering of fresh basil. What we most appreciate, though, is the chewy-crisp, smoky pizza crust. The chunks of juicy Italian sausage are excellent. If you love fresh mozzarella, know that the white pie is blanketed rim to rim with the stuff.

"We’d never wish for it, of course, but if we ever found ourselves on Death Row, Grimaldi’s pizza would be our last meal request. Everything about this pizza screams perfection: the slightly burnt crust, baked in a coal-fired oven; the freshest-of-fresh toppings; and ..."   [Read More]

We adore the toasty browned cheese on the white pies.

The Italian sausage’s spiciness mixed incredibly with the bitterness of the Greek olives, and the ultra-fragrant basil was truly the pièce de résistance on this culinary work of art.  Bravo!

It's Scottsdale's superior crust that makes us prefer these pies to the ones made in Brooklyn.

Pizza here is not inexpensive.  If you load on the toppings, the price can rise dramatically.  Note that we believe the Phoenix location listed on this menu no longer exists.  (Click on the photo for a clearer view.)

Bianco gets all the attention, but Grimaldi's is top notch.
