Pizza Walk With Me

Let's get hyped up over some pizza.

Dan TallaricoComment
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: “Fazio’s Pizza” “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."
