Thick, thin, saucey, or supreme… Pizza comes in all shapes, textures, and sizes. The origin of pizza can be traced back to several different continents, but none of them matter. At Motion Tactic, we know good food, and our list of best pizza in Phoenix is the only one that matters.

As usual, we went around the office and interrupted daily design and developing duties to bring you a list of the best places to grab a slice...or seven. Also, in case you’re not into pizza (psycho), we’ve come up with several different lists for places across the valley. Here are a few - coffee, tacosbrunch, and cocktails!

In no particular order, here is our list of the best pizza in Phoenix:


Grand Avenue Pizza 

This little pizza place is a gem in the Phoenix area. In addition to great pizza, Grand Avenue Pizza has a nice patio for you to enjoy your food. Come for dinner or for a late night snack. This place is open until 4am! Max recommends getting the Animal pizza (white sauce, spicy sausage, smoked bacon, banana peppers, spinach, and cheese) - YES PLZ.


Crust is one of those places that makes you a pizza lover. There is something for everyone on the menu. The location in downtown Chandler sits above The Ostrich, which is a hidden cocktail lounge. Grab a pizza and then head downstairs for the best cocktails of your life. Best date night right here!

BJ’s not only has amazing pizza, but an insanely large menu. Come hungry and bring your friends. If you haven’t had their Pizookies, go right now. It will change your life.

The Parlor 

The Parlor has the perfect atmosphere for pizza and good hangs. The pizza is artisanal and not your typical cheese and pepperoni. Grab a glass of wine (they have an amazing selection), get pizza, or order their hand crafted pasta. All are great options!
