La Piazza Al Forno
You'll find soft-centered, authentic Neopolitan pizzas at La Piazza Al Forno in downtown Glendale. The ever-busy restaurant has even got the stamp of approval from the Italian trade group Associazone Verace Pizza Napoletana, which is just part of the reason why it's our favorite pizzeria in the West Valley. And if Glendale doesn't make your list of regular stomping grounds, check out our complete list of the best neighborhood pizzerias in Metro Phoenix.
