Eater.com, like any good click-baiting website, likes to crank out list after list, but hey, at least they don't make you click a hundred things and when something from Tucson makes one of those lists? Hurray!

Their new 24 hottest pizzerias list included the newest location of Pizzeria Bianco (with the Tucson location likely to make whatever version of the list comes out after January 2014), but also Falora, complete with a somewhat meaningless blurb from the Star:

Earlier this year, Tucson restaurateur Ari Shapiro launched what the Arizona Daily Star wrote is "what some may consider his most ambitious restaurant project." Falora Pizza & Espresso serves Neapolitan-style pies such as the margherita, bianca, uovo, and more out of a brick oven. It has been hot ever since.

Congrats, Ari.

If you'd like to revisit our review (which includes the far more interesting blurb "I have to admit up front that I was secretly rooting for Falora to succeed. And I'm happy to say that, on most fronts, it has."), click here.
