Lamp Wood Oven Pizzeria
Scottsdale, AZ 85255
Phoenix New Times' Description
The rustic pies from this casual yet refined spot in North Scottsdale come courtesy of chef-owner Matt Pilato, who studied Neopolitan pizza-making at the Scuola Italiana Pizzaioli Academy in San Francisco. Pilato doesn’t quite adhere to the strict Neapolitan pizza standard, preferring instead to combine some of its techniques with his own style. The result is nearly 20, 12-inch varieties of red and white artisan pies with bready crusts — charred and crisp at the rim and thin and soft in the center — and laden with top-notch ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes, hand-stretched mozzarella, and sausages prepared by DeFalco’s Italian Deli & Grocery in Scottsdale.
Tips from foursquare
The Kicker (strewn with Calabrese salami and Calabrian peppers) and the Geppetto (topped with Italian sausage, Gorgonzola and caramelized onion marmalade) will light up your life!
Amaretto cookie milkshake with roasted marshmallows. Yum.
Combining Neapolitan techniques with his own style, Pilato features nearly 20 varieties of red and white artisan 12-inch pies served up in a restaurant that's as casually refined as the neighborhood.
Unfortunately the actual lamps at lamp pizza where very underwhelming. The natural lighting neutralizes the lamps' power. However, A+ for the pizza.
Great pizza! Enough said!
