From Birmingham, Alabama, to Laramie, Wyoming, Food Network Magazine recently completed a cross-country road trip to discover the best slices in every state.
The Arizona winner? The Salsiccia From The Parlor Pizzeria in Central Phoenix. Here's what they had to say about it:
"This popular spot had a former life as a 1950s beauty parlor, and it's fair to say that the place is still sending out some beauties. All of the wood-fired pies are worth trying, but the Salsiccia is a must: a thin, chewy, lightly charred crust loaded with melted slabs of mozzarella and cheddar, grilled radicchio and spicy pork sausage. The kicker is a drizzle of slightly sweet saba, a balsamic vinegar reduction." Congrats to The Parlor for making the list. To see the top slices of all fifty states (get ready to drool), go here.
