Crisp Premium Pizza in Old Town Scottsdale

Crisp Premium Pizza in Old Town Scottsdale

{{ you can’t make everyone happy, you aren’t pizza }}

 Their motto is – The best crust you will ever have with the most premium ingredients! 

One thing that sets Crisp Premium Pizza apart from the rest is they are the only pizzeria in town serving grandma style pizza pies. A grandma style pie is a square, thick pizza, with a crisp crust that it oiled on the bottom and baked in a (square!) pan. They offer two types of pies:

-A traditional pie which is topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh basil, and EVOO.

-A white pie that uses ricotta rather than tomato and adds fresh garlic, fresh basil, and EVOO. 

These pizzas can be topped with a variety of premium meats and vegetables. They import their flour from Italy which makes the most amazing crispy bottom and fluffy on top crust! 

Adrian is the owner of Crisp, and you will also often see his wife Bana in the shop. They recently moved here from Brooklyn and are both very sweet and welcoming. 

We had the pleasure of helping Bana and Adrian host a media night for bloggers and other influencers on May, 2nd, 2018. It was a huge success! We sampled several pizzas, and had a great night taking photos and chatting and mingling with other blogger friends. They ordered the cutest cake which was in the shape of their signature grandma style pizza pie! 

All in all the night was a huge success. It feels good to see a community of bloggers come together to share their love of supporting local businesses through their social media pages and also word of mouth.
