For decades, the dedicated pizza purveyors behind Magpies have woven together appealing pies that burst at their dough-seams with ingredients made fresh on-site every day. The expansive menu presents an appetizing array of options. Specialty pies—such as the Godfather, which manages a tightly knit family of mozzarella, swiss, cheddar, and romano cheeses and a meaty gang of Italian sausage, Canadian bacon, and capicola ($2.99 slice, $14.99 12", $17.99 14", and $20.99 16")—carry out quick, efficient digestive hits. Culinary constructioneers, meanwhile, can design their own doughy disc ($2.99 per slice, $10.99 12", $12.99 14", $14.99 16"). Starting with a foundation of New York–style regular, wheat, or crispy-sourdough crust, add a decorative daub of fresh sauce such as house red, tomato pesto, or barbecue sauce. From there, add on cheeses, veggies, and meats (extra ingredients cost $0.50 per slice, $1.49 each for 12", $1.79 each for 14", and $1.99 each for 16")—or indulge your mad scientist by piling together anchovies, fresh cilantro, pineapple, piñon nuts, and feta cheese and then bringing it to life during an electrical storm.
The glass gurus at Tucson Auto Tint repair, replace, and tint windows and windshields. Like the blue-filter version of Casablanca, the Standard Heat Buster tinting uses dyed film ($149+), covering windows in SunTek tint and bouncing 99% of harmful UVA and UVB rays out of the car's interior with ID checks at the doors. The process typically takes about 2.5 hours, so vehicles can be dropped off and picked up on the same day, or technicians can make window-darkening house calls. SUV and station-wagon tinting is available with a $20 upgrade, Corvettes and Volkswagen Beetles are an extra $30, and imaginary hovercrafts are tinted free of charge. The three-year warranty protects against bubbling, peeling, cracking, and being strafed by Canadian fighter pilots.
Offering the carnivorous Southwest an authentic taste of midwestern meat markets, Dickman’s provides hordes of hungry Arizonans with a vast array of beef, steak, poultry, and seafood.

Those in the mood for a hearty, between-bread meal can try a three-napkin sandwich ($4.99 for a 6 in.) along with one of many homemade salads ($3.99/lb.).
The roasters at Coffee X Change ignite peaceful morning rituals with fresh-roasted regional beans procured from the fair-trade market. With a day's notice, customers can order one pound of house, Peaberry, or globetrotting beans from such coffee-rich regions as Costa Rica, Kenya, or New Guinea, and the expert java-whisperers roast the beans overnight. To satisfy the percolating preferences of all patrons, brew maestros can grind the batch of freshly cooked crop or leave the beans whole for personal grinding practice or delicious slingshot ammunition. Though the market price of each bean type varies, batches range from approximately $12.45–$14.45 per pound.
