A Look at Pizzerias Across the U.S.
414 Pub & Pizza | Tempe, Arizona
The Tempe spot is part pizzeria, part karaoke bar with a fun atmosphere at its center. “I think fun defines my pizzeria the best, my employees, my customers, when you come to 414 we like to have fun eating pizza, singing karaoke or hearing great music and having some drinks,” says owner Spencer Golish. People go crazy for 414’s pepperoni pizza. It’s not your typical pie. It features a traditional pepperoni and it’s topped with cup and char ronis that pop. Its thin-crust New York-style pizza menu features more than a dozen specialty pies that are accompanied by pizza bowls and cauliflower crust pizza with any of the pizza topping options. Specialty pies include the Arizona (It’s Hot Here) with a hot ranch base, grilled chicken, bacon, onion, green pepper and garlic. The Tropical Hawaiian pizza features coconut flakes, ham and pineapple.
Ops | Brooklyn, New York
This Bushwick neighborhood pizzeria uses a naturally leavened pizza dough. Its menu is condensed to small plates and a handful of pizza options including a marinara, margherita and square pie. There is the Juno topped with broccoli rabe, potatoes, provola and ricotta salata. The Rojo features mortadella, pickled peppers and crescenza. Ops is a destination for its natural wine offerings, made with minimal chemical and technological intervention, as well as crafted cocktails and beer.
Trouble & Son’s Pizzeria | Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin
The rustic Italian themed pizzeria in Milwaukee recently closed to debut kitchen and patio upgrades. With the renovation, its menu has expanded to include traditional Italian dishes like chicken Parmesan and chicken Alfredo in addition to calamari and arancini. The house pizza menu features eight pizzas available in a traditional hand-tossed crust or a cauliflower crust. The Sprout is a vegan pie that features a mushroom medley, crispy Brussels sprouts, vegan mozzarella cheese and a truffle glaze. There is also The Moxie with basil pesto, shrimp, feta cheese and tomatoes.
