For anyone in the mood for a New York-style pizza, there’s a new player in town. Mr. Moto Pizza, relocating from San Diego, Calif., is launching his very first pizzeria in Arizona right in the heart of the Valley, which is great news for anyone looking for a new go-to pizzeria.
Mr. Moto Pizza opened his flagship restaurant in San Diego seven years ago, and the brand has taken off ever since. While a New York-style pizza isn’t that hard to find, Mr. Moto Pizza not only separates using fresh ingredients, but he uses filtered water in his dough, in order to eliminate all unwanted minerals that can be found in tap water. This small adjustment improves the quality of the freshly made dough. And while quality dough and sauce are the key ingredients for an exceptional pizza, the restaurant also offers more than 20 different types of pizza in display cases, which is perfect for customers who want to order individual slices of different sizes. pizzas. Mr. Moto Pizza has found this to be one of the best ways to increase experimentation not only with display pizzas, but also with “pizza of the month”.
Customers of Mr. Moto Pizza will find the crust to be just a little different from most other pizza places. As the water is strained and a thinner New York style crust is created, there is an extra lip of dough around the crust which may rise during baking. And, because the lip is thicker than the rest of the crust, it stays soft and chewy when eaten, which is great news for anyone who doesn’t like thicker, crunchier, and sometimes hard-to-chew crusts. .
There are some truly unique styles of pizza for sale at Mr. Moto Pizza. The Smoky Greens, for example, includes fresh spinach, garlic, ricotta, sweet balsamic glaze, and garlic paste sauce. This is perfect for those looking to avoid meat. Other unique pizzas include the California Love (bacon, chicken, caramelized onions, ranch, and garlic paste), Mr. Moto (Italian sausage, Spanish chorizo, meatballs, Burrata cheese, marinara dots, and garlic paste). garlic) and Mama Mia (fresh spinach, bacon, pepperoni, gorgonzola and homemade garlic paste).
The new Metro Phoenix Mr. Moto Pizza location is at 3945 East Camelback Road in Arcadia. It is currently open from noon to 8 p.m. every day of the week. Delivery ends 30 minutes before closing.
