In October 2011, Tim and Marybeth Scanlon began taking their pizza to the people in their popular food truck, but a few years ago, the couple took their artisan pies the brick-and-mortar route and opened the Pizza People Pub on Central Avenue in midtown Phoenix.
The modern, bustling restaurant offers a range of beer, wine and cocktails, gluten-free and vegan options, as well as such comfort-food and pub-grub favorites as mac and cheese, wings, burgers and salads. The star of the show, however, is the pizza. Using a secret family recipe, the Scanlons make their dough from scratch, hand-toss it and bake it in stone deck ovens. No pie is built before you order it.
Enjoy the ambience and tasty fare — if you haven’t experienced Pizza People Pub, add it to your bucket list for 2017. This family-owned business supports local Arizona businesses wherever possible and is committed to sustainable, Earth-friendly practices — composting food waste and recycling 98 percent of non-food waste.
