The tomatoes don't come from concentrate, the sausage is never frozen, and even the pineapple is freshly carved when it reaches customers' tables. But Mr. Scrib's isn't a farmers' market—it's a pizza joint that traces its roots back more than 50 years to west Michigan. The new Phoenix location makes it possible to get that no-shortcuts blend of toppings without a 20-hour wait while the delivery driver books a flight from Michigan to the Southwest.
