When the big pizza guy's at the door from Magpies, that's amore! Every pizza place lets you choose toppings, but few pizza joints give you the options that Magpies does. Sure, they've got your usual meats and veggies, but you can also choose from an impressive list of toppings that includes fresh yellow squash, capicolla, fresh roasted eggplant and piñon nuts. They offer several different sauces, different types of dough, and a wide array of cheeses including low-fat and soy cheese. Magpies has a full menu of creative specialty pizzas, or you can craft your own pie. Dine in, carry out or delivery, the readers say it's the best pizza in town. Also located at 105 S. Houghton Road, 7315 N. Oracle Road, 4654 E. Speedway Blvd., 7157 E. Tanque Verde Road.
B-SIDE: Tino's Pizza, 6610 E. Tanque Verde Road. Dino Chonis has been making great pies since the mid-'80s. The fine variety includes a white with extra virgin olive oil. Pleasant to dine in or, like Sir Paul McCartney, to go.
