Pizza So Good It’s Certified!

Recently we stopped in our favorite pizza place, La Piazza Al Forno located in Glendale, Arizona. We stop in as often as we can (if our weight scale numbers are lookin’ good) and enjoy a great evening in a very casual atmosphere.

The owners actually import their flour and other items from Italy. It smells so good when you walk in the door I wish I could share that with you on this post. The pizza is so good – It’s Certified!!



Our favorite girl, Melissa was there, lucky us! We love sitting at her tables. I had my usual Salvatore pizza (I meant to take a picture but was really hungry- I owe you a picture) which is made with San Marzano tomatoes, house-made mozzarella, Proscuitto di Parma and shavings of Parmesan Reggiano.


This pizza is wood-fired and couldn’t be better other than being in Italy. We took a picture this time with Melissa even though we promised we would be back to say “good-bye” before we leave for Italy. We had a good laugh when we looked at the pictures and saw Jose photo bombed us!!

Of course we closed our dinner with a cannolli. Gary and I don’t share well when it comes to cannolli’s so we each had our own!20160402_175049

If you happen to be in Arizona and happen to drive through Glendale, check out our place. Guy Fieri from Food Network’s, Diners, Drive-in’s and Dives did a piece on this place and he loved it too!

By the way, say “hello” to Melissa and tell her Gary & Ilene sent you!
