Fazio’s pizza might be the sleeper hit of Pittsburgh. It’s simple, crispy, and delicious. A lot of pizzas I’ve choked down tend to be burdened with cheese or a crust too crispy for its own good. Fazio’s somehow avoids those pratfalls and delivers a product that feels naturally at home inside your mouth.
Every time I call Jon Fazio answers. Our exchange always goes like this:
“I’d like to place an order for pickup.”
“Okay, what’ll you have, boss.”
“A medium plain pizza.”
“You want to bump that up to a large for a dollar more?”
Sigh. “Yeah, let’s do that.”
“You got it, boss. Anything else?”
“Nope, that’s it.”
“See ya in 15 minutes."
