The nationally acclaimed pizzasmiths at Papa John's hand-toss dough in preparation for a miscellany of fresh meat, locally sourced veggies, and all-natural sauce. The menu sets out more than 15 toppings ($1–$1.50), such as pepperoni, black olives, and jalapeños, which adorn four sizes of original thin pizza ($7+) bedecked with fresh tomato sauce and cheese that unites the diverse ingredients much as a squabbling family is united by a love for pizza. Preselected topping combos ($11–$18) save stomachs from indecision; The Works proffers three types of meat, three vegetables, and olives, and the hawaiian barbecue chicken calls for a truce in the eternal fruit-veggie food fight with the addition of pineapple.
Local art and regional flavors foster a sense of community at the two locations of Taps Signature Cuisine and Bar, prompting ABC 15 to describe the Litchfield Park restaurant as "a place where you can kick off your shoes, stay a while, and enjoy some local music." The chefs add distinctive southwestern flavors to dishes by occasionally incorporating anaheim chilies or chipotle-spiced condiments from the area's naturally occurring ketchup geysers. These piquant touches lend a welcome kick to certain recipes, whereas the rest of the upscale American menu—which includes grilled rib eyes, organic chicken breasts, and roasted fillets of salmon—embraces more classic flavors.
According to legend, an elder Scriblioni was instrumental in building the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and its near failure got the family banned from construction in Italy. If it weren't for that, the story goes, the Scriblionis never would have gotten into the pizza business. Today, the kitchen crew at Mr. Scrib's Pizza crafts its classic pies using the exact same recipe the family perfected in 1961. The dough is made fresh every day, rather than once a month and preserved between the pages of a heavy book. Fresh veggies and a four-cheese blend adorn the tops of these pizzas, and fresh sausage made from a special family recipe is baked right on the pizza, instead of being pre-cooked and then frozen.

While freezer technology has helped prevent disease and saved humanity hours of burying food underground, it has also made it difficult to find an Italian restaurant that serves food born in an honest kitchen. Today's Groupon uncovers one of the few remaining with $25 worth of fresh Italian fine dining and drinks at Cucina Tagliani for $12—good at any of its three locations in Glendale, Avondale, and Peoria.
In order to craft a truly authentic New York–style pizza, NYPD Pizza holds that only New York water will do. All of its kitchens boast a custom filtration system that replicates the flavor and character of Big Apple tap water, said to give the city's pizza and bagel dough its trademark flavor. At NYPD Pizza, that meticulously made dough is hand-tossed and baked inside of a classic stone oven. Similar care is put into selecting the rest of the ingredients—the kitchen strives to use only fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes, and employs exclusive cheese blends from Wisconsin and California.
The menu sports more than 15 specialty pizzas, many of which are New York–themed, such as the signature Brooklyn Family topped with pepperoni, sausage, and fresh basil. Other standouts include a Veganizza with veggies, Daiya vegan cheese, and an optional gluten-free crust, and a Pizza Blanca white pie with olive oil and crushed garlic. Slices of pizza, bites of Italian sandwiches, and family-size helpings of pasta all pair well with sips of NYPD Uptown Amber Ale, a craft beer brewed exclusively for NYPD Pizza by The Phoenix Ale Brewery.
