PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — There are many, many pizzerias and restaurants and most people would say that New York makes the best pizza in the country. But this year in Yelp’s top 100 pizza spots, only five New York locations made the list. Arizona has four locations on this year’s list.
My Slice of the Pie Pizzeria, Yelp’s no. 18
Described by Yelp as a “New York-style tradition meets the flavors of the Southwest,” the restaurant features fusion recipes like ‘You Gotta Carne Asada,’ which is topped with their signature ‘Southwest Sauce,’ chargrilled steak, avocado puree, cilantro, and cotija cheese.
Arizona’s Family reach out to Karen Zatarain, owner of My Slice of the Pie Pizzeria, and she said, “we’re a local spot and a bit hidden away. Most folks have trouble even finding us, so I was so surprised that we got this kind of recognition!”
