About New York Pizza Department

Our founders grew up experiencing two consistent things in their lives: Great New York pizza with the family every Friday night and Sunday dinners with their mom cooking in the kitchen with friends, family and community coming in the open door.

When they moved to Arizona, they wanted to bring both of those experiences to their new found friends and community. It was then they realized that you can bring the NY passion and heart to AZ but you have to bring the NY water to AZ if you want to make authentic New York pizza. It was from this idea that NY Pizza Department was born.

Now, 25 plus years later we continue to throw open the doors to friends, family and our community as we build upon the foundation that comes from our desire to create an experience for all of our community that reflects the quality and love we put into every pie that goes out the door.
