Phoenix Pizzeria

Classic Crust Pizza, a new pizzeria located at 2150 E Cactus Road in Phoenix, opened for business on Monday, February 2.

Classic Crust Pizza is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Alex and Angie Geiger, newcomers to the Phoenix restaurant market. Michael Johnson serves as executive chef and general manager. Alex and Michael started making pizza in a wood-fired oven mounted to the back of a 1957 Dodge pickup truck, and quickly started looking for a restaurant space to bring their recipes to a bigger market.

Classic Crust Pizza offers delicious hand-tossed NY style pizza, wings, grinders, and salads. Local beers from Hess Brewing and San Tan Brewing, plus an ever-changing selection of wine rounds out the menu. Every hour is happy hour; all draft beer and wine refills are half-priced.

Lunch and dinner are served daily, with take-out and delivery options for the N. Phoenix neighborhood. Pizza by the slice is offered during lunch.

"We take the time to make pizza the right way, letting the dough rise slowly giving it a combination of chewiness and crunch that can't be beat. We are serious about our crust," said Classic Crust Pizza owner Alex Geiger.

The new restaurant is decorated with hotrod art by artist Max Grundy. The art is a perfect match for the neighborhood, which has myriad automotive and motorcycle shops nearby. Classic Crust Pizza will embrace the neighborhood, with special nights for classic car and bike enthusiasts.
