Federal Pizza

The fourth project from restaurateur Craig DeMarco and his Upward Projects team (Postino, Windsor, and Churn), this intimate yet lively pizza parlor, housed in a restored 1950s bank in north Central Phoenix, features a thoughtful food and drink menu with dishes ranging from the dependable, to the very good, to the sublime. Satisfying pizzas, designed by master bread maker MJ Coe, feature a slightly crispy and chewy crust with a thick, puffy edge and a harmonious flavor balance of toppings. But don’t stop at the pies. Federal also serves up lively salads, luscious pasta, and killer sandwiches incorporating ingredients like house-made mozzarella, locally procured sausage, and a farmers market’s bounty of vegetables. Read our review.
Federal's food is not so much reinvented as it is crafted with expert care.
