Born and raised on the East Coast, when it comes to pizza its New York style for me. One of the best New York style pizzas (and New Jersey…my favorite being Mac and Macco in Ocean City, NJ) is Grimaldi’s Pizzeria with 8 locations in Arizona.
This summer (June 1st – July 31st) Grimaldi’s has added a special summertime menu in addition to their regular menu of classics.
Strawberry Spinach Salad complete with baby spinach, feta cheese, red onions, toasted almonds, and sliced strawberries all tossed in a strawberry vinaigrette.
Barbecue Chicken Pizza, a spin on a classic with Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbeque Sauce, tender chicken, smoky bacon, and red onion, garnished with fresh cilantro
Summertime Sangria, a refreshing berry sangria.
Strawberry and Blueberry cheesecake offerings, both house-made with seasonal fresh berries.
The classics are also available – order some of both menus. Ceasar salad, traditional pizza, meatball pizza, cannolis and more.
Thirsty? All the locations in Phoenix now have cocktails. I loved my Long Island Limoncello Martini.
disclosure: I was invited to a special media dinner to experience the summer menu so that I could share the experience. All opinions are my own.
