Don't worry Paradise Valley, the quick-service pizza gods didn't forget about you.
As of last week, Momenti Pizzeria has brought 12-inch personal pizzas to your North Phoenix/Paradise Valley neighborhood -- specifically at 4740 East Shea Boulevard, Suite 109, on the northwest corner of Tatum and Shea. The restaurant is technically located in the same space as Zoyo neighborhood yogurt and comes courtesy of the self-serve yogurt shop's owners.
Momenti Pizzeria will be serving five different types of 12-inch personal pizzas: cheese, margherita, pepperoni, sausage and pepper, and white. That's in addition to the option to "make your own masterpiece" by selecting from a list of toppings that includes anchovies, bacon, basil pesto, Canadian bacon, caramelized onions, pineapple, and more. All of Momenti's pies are priced between $8 and $10.
This is yet another of the the growing number of fast-casual pizza spots popping up around town, including Pizza Studio in downtown Phoenix; PizzaMe, which is coming to McCormick Ranch in April; and Fired Pie, a chain that has already opened several restaurants in the Valley.
There are also four different types of salads including an Italian chopped salad, Momenti House Salad, and a Spinach Chicken Salad.
Momenti will be offering take-out and dine-in options. For more information check out the Momenti Pizzeria Facebook.
