Organ Stop Pizza Celebrates 40 years in Mesa

“Pizza and organ music first came together in Mesa 40 years ago,” according to the East Valley Tribune.

“Cheryl Johnson remembers first going to Organ Stop Pizza when, as a young mother, she brought her family to Mesa from Minnesota to visit her then-recently retired parents.


“When my mom and dad lived in Mesa in a retirement community in the ‘70s, that’s how I got to Organ Stop Pizza. Mom and dad took us there. That’s how I attended the pizza and music. Mom and dad thought it was so much fun,” Johnson recalls.

Now a resident of Sun City, Johnson organizes trips for Recreation Centers of Sun City, Inc.

“It’s a very popular tour with our seniors, not only for loving pizza, but as well for their love for music,” she said.”
