Magpies Pizza Tops in Tucson

Tucson pizzeria celebrates 20 years; brand continues to grow


Tucson, AZ(10/22/2008) – For years, Magpies Gourmet Pizza has been saucing and tossing its way into the hearts of Tucsonans. Most recently, Magpies Gourmet Pizza was awarded Tucson Weekly’s Best Pizza award for the 20th straight year. Magpies has been honored with this “Best Pizza” title every single year since they’ve been open for business!


Now, as the brand continues to celebrate its 20th anniversary, this longstanding Tucson favorite is set to launch a series of additions to their menu and business, such as a brand new, interactive website in November 2008.


With these additions, Magpies Pizza is positioning itself for future growth statewide. The first step in this process will be the addition of sandwiches to the Magpies menu, which currently includes pizzas, salads, and calzones. Support has been pouring out from the legions of fans across Southern Arizona.


Secondly, inspired by Tucsonans’ passion for Magpies Pizza, the company is set to launch a new division to the company – catering. The catering menu will offer everything from Magpies’ famous gourmet pizzas and calzones, to Italian specialty platters like antipasto trays, olive trays and Italian meats and cheeses, as well as Italian pasta dishes like flavored raviolis, lasagnas, chicken and eggplant parmesan, decadent desserts and much, much more! The catering division will offer businesses, organizations, and families a chance to dish out their favorite Magpies specialties. Menus were designed to serve 20 to hundreds of guests.


With five locations across Tucson, Magpies devotees are able to get their pizza fix any time, any place. In the near future, Magpies hopes to expand its pizza empire north to the hustle and bustle of Phoenix. Expansion is a high priority and is in development.
