Scottsdale AZ: Grimaldi's Pizza

Grimaldi's in Old Town Scottsdale is an outpost of the New York pizzeria. As you might expect, the pizza is thin crust. They use a coal-fired brick oven, really the best way to cook a thin crust pizza. You have a great view of the piazzolas and ovens from all the tables in the main dining room.

I started with a house salad. All the ingredients were very fresh. They used the same mushrooms that are on the pizza. The oil and vinegar dressing had a very good complement of seasonings.

My pizza was topped with Italian sausage, mushrooms, and red peppers. Grimaldi's is one of the proponents of sauce on the top pizza construction. All the toppings and the Mozarella were of high quality. I wouldn't put this among the very best pizzas I've had. Grimaldi's crust didn't taste as much of wheat as some of the best crusts. The toppings were very good but not over the top with flavor. But overall this is a very good pizza and worth a stop.
