Ray's Pizza Phoenix Area
This is where I head whenever I have a need for a slice of great pie!
I've been a big fan of Ray's ever since I ate there for the first time, well, a long time ago. They have great Neopolitan pizza as well as Sicilian style.
From what most transplanted New Yorkers say, it's the next best thing to being in the Big Apple. The crust is crisp to the point it holds up the generous cheese and toppings, but is still a bit chewy on the inside.
Ray's has nine locations in the Phoenix area and plans to open more. the place is always busy, and, for what it's worth, I have yet to find a location where the manager didn't have an authentic Italian/New York accent. Somehow, that makes the pizza taste even a little better.
