Ok, I grew up in New York, I went to Chicago for college and stayed several more years to work. I've seen some great pizza from two of the traditional favorite spots for great pizza.
Several years ago I noticed that USA Today had crowned a pizzeria in Phoenix of all places as the location of the best pizza in the U.S. Needless to say, I was skeptical.
I had to try it out! So I finally make it to Phoenix, the daytime temperature is approaching 120 degrees and I decide that I need to try Bianco's pizza for dinner. Since I live in the Eastern time zone my internal clock was a bit messed up so I made it to Bianco's in time for their opening at 5pm. Before the doors were even unlocked there were dozens of people sitting on picnic tables outside, having wine at the wine bar next door, or just milling about waiting for the door to be unlocked.
