You Can’t Go Wrong With Tasty Artisanal Wood-Fired Pizzas

Combine great pizza with a tastefully authentic and fun experience. What do you get? Everybody knows the answer is Il Bosco Pizza. The place has been voted as Scottsdale’s Finest Pizzeria, and also enjoys 5-star rankings just about anywhere. It includes reviews by food bloggers, as well as other major food sites.

Il Bosco Pizza takes pride in its masterful pizza creations. Any customer stepping inside the restaurant will be delighted because of the aroma of their crusty artisanal pizza. It is cooked in the 900-degree, hand-tiled Valoriani wood-fired oven, using only the freshest and most natural ingredients. The end result is nothing short of wonderful. Truly, the pizza in this place isn’t made to disappoint.

From Humble Beginnings to a Well-Deserved Success

If you are a resident in Scottsdale, you’d probably remember Il Bosco Pizza starting out as a mobile catering truck. After receiving the warm appreciation of its loyal customers, it wasn’t long ’til they were able to put up a store in the spring of 2012. Since then, they have quickly established themselves as one of the best, if not the best, pizza place in Scottsdale.

What is the secret to their great-tasting pizza? It’s simple, but don’t get it wrong. It’s not just about going through the process of letting the dough rise, forming the ingredients, then firing up the pies in the oven. For one, they maintain a wide assortment of high quality and fresh ingredients such as imported cheeses, local veggies and meats, and homemade sauces. Second, they know how to cook every pizza with love.

Today, Il Bosco Pizza has over 40 seats and a take-out window. Their customers, locals and tourists alike, can enjoy mouthwatering garnished wood-fired pizzas, paired with salads, savory antipasti, dessert, and wine.

A Great Neighborhood Gem

The pleasing charred flavor on the edges adds to the unique and smoky flavor of the pizza. The crust served is airy and chewy. With just one bite of the perfectly-cooked treat, you can already taste the fresh ingredients that complement the delicious sauce.

You can also add spice to your pizza with Italian sausage, Cippolini onions, freshly roasted jalapeños and Hatch green chile!

One may say that a dining experience at Il Bosco Pizza rivals that of a visit to a pizzeria in Naples or Sicily. It is simply outstanding. This pizzeria is not just about serving great pizzas. The ambiance is also chill, yet fun, so everyone can have a great time. You can sit on the patio and just relax with your friends while listening to the live music from next door. It’s not all bad they set up space heaters as well as white strung lights, too!
