The Food Network has been giving some serious love to Phoenix— so we decided to brag roundup all the Greater Phoenix restaurants that have been featured.


The Parlor Pizzeria

Parlor Pizzeria is a recipient of some Food Network love being named as the best pizza in Arizona on the “50 States, 50 Pizzas” list. The particular pie named is the Salsiccia, that comes loaded with mozzarella, cheddar, grilled radicchio and locally sourced spicy pork sausage.
