Some of the best pizza in Phoenix

Since moving back to the Phoenix area, we've been trying to find really good pizza. We were not having much luck. Then came Federal Pizza. We've been several times and have not been disappointed. The pizza crust has great flavor and consistency - not too thick and doughy, but not too thin and... read more

One of my worst experience, I couldn't go on but why. Will not be coming back. One thing I will say is did not get refill on are drink and music was very loud couldn't have a conversation, and when asked why the music was so loud the guy said its either allowed or too low. And one more thing... More

Ate here for lunch on our last day in Phoenix. Sat outside on the patio for lunch. Perfectly shaded with some sun shining through the trees. Excellent service, the waiters and waitresses all worked together! We had a brussel sprout pizza with chicken. Loved the crust! It was different to say the least, but was good! Never had anything like... More

We had a terrific server who could not have been more friendly or helpful. She went a tiny bit astray when we asked about having our small salads made with romaine lettuce instead of the spring mix. She said it would be no problem, but the spring mix showed up. The problem was quickly rectified. We decided to share a... More

Unique and flavorful pizza choices (you may also build your own). The crust is crispy and also fluffy, making for a perfect bite. Recommend the veggie platter appetizer, and the clockwork orange salad. Only wine and beer here, not a full bar. Waits can be a bit long, but the pizza is worth it!

Let me begin by saying that the pizza here is not bad. The chefs here are clearly devoted to discovering new and unique flavor combinations that will result in a one-of-a-kind pizza experience, and in doing so they do indeed create an original spin on the American favorite. However, I must caution anyone who is looking for a simple, approachable... More

We were taken to this place by friends that live here and frequent the place. Them knowing that I'm in "the business", they wanted to impress me as well as wanting my opinion of the food. We started with a meat & Vegges platter kind of an appetizer. Very good, the ladies ordered some of the specialty drinks and us... More

Federal Pizza is probably the best pizza in Phoenix...much better than Pizza Bianco...and service is outstanding. The staff always makes you feel comfortable and are responsive to any requests. I like the meatballs and polenta or the burrata and fix platter as an appetizer then the big star pizza with the local Schreiner's sausage.
