Where do North Scottsdale folks go for artisan pizza when they're really hungry? Starting Sunday, March 10, it may be Giant Rustic Pizza.
The new takeout and delivery restaurant, 14626 Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard (at the intersection of Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Thompson Peak Parkway), will feature a signature 20-inch pie topped with tomato sauce and nearly a full pound of whole-milk Wisconsin mozzarella cheese.
Here's what else to expect, plus, how to score a free slice.
Giant's handmade pizzas, available in 20-inch and 14-inch sizes, start with dough made with Midwestern flour and spring water and are baked in a hearth-stone oven. Along with 10 signature creations, customers can also opt to customize their own with ingredients like Fresno chilies, sun-dried tomatoes, and Genoa salami.
Also on the menu: a variety of salads and artisan sandwiches featuring homemade bread.
And for the Giant Rustic Pizza-curious, the restaurant will be serving up free slices and Pepsi from 10 to 11 a.m. Sunday, March 10, through Tuesday, March 12.
Giant's founder, John Wunder, is also the owner of Ocho Locos Mexican Restaurant and Cantina in Anthem.
