The highly anticipated Grimaldi’s Pizzeria in Scottsdale Quarter is now serving award-winning, hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas to rave reviews to North Scottsdale patrons. This location serves as the the seventeenth restaurant, for this rapidly growing family owned empire. With over 100-years of pizza making traditions and the tantalizing aroma of pizza and calzones baked to perfection in the signature coal burning oven, Grimaldi’s brings a taste of New York to cities across the nation.
In the world of pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution that has garnered more awards than any other pizzeria in the country with more celebrity sightings than most 5-star restaurants. Using only the freshest ingredients, a “secret recipe” pizza sauce, handmade mozzarella cheese and dough, Grimaldi’s serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family oriented pizzeria.
Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria delivers a unique flavor and consistency that is just not possible from wood or gas ovens. Weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day, the oven heats up to 1,200 degrees. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi’s famous crispy and smoky thin crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year.
It has been said that the secret to true New York-style pizza is the water. Grimaldi’s believes that too, going to great lengths to keep the integrity of the water used in the Brooklyn pizzeria by hiring a chemist to analyze and recreate the mineral content and exact composition of the water to ensure the dough tastes the same in Scottsdale Quarter.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria wholly owns and operates locations in Las Vegas, Dallas, Sugar Land, San Antonio, Fort Myers and now seven locations in Arizona. Additional locations in Vegas, South Carolina and Florida are on the drawing board.
Located at 15147 N Scottsdale Road, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is currently open for dinner only and will extend its hours later this month. Grimaldi’s offers guests a selection of beers as well as an extensive list of wines (by the glass and bottle) to complement their freshly prepared salads, hand tossed pizzas and calzones and famous desserts.
