This is the second western themed pizzeria I have eaten at so far, and I am still perplexed why the western theme is such a popular variant on the normal pizzeria (for example I have not seen any Japanese or Brazilian themed pizzerias yet…) This pizzeria was similar to the pizza I had at Bob and Clare’s , with the walls fully decorated with western themed kitsch items; long horn skulls, sombreros, and old wagon wheels. The average age of the diners was probably somewhere around the age of ten, with the parents included. Several birthday parties seemed to be going on at Artizona’s while I enjoyed my pizza. As tacky as western themed pizza may sound, these pizzerias-to their credit, still utilize wood-fired brick ovens. The western themed pizza here is better than Bob and Clare’s. Both pizzerias chose to prepare the pizzas named after their restaurants with sausage and baked beans, but Arizona’s ingredients seem to be of a higher quality than my of previous western pizza. The sausage is non-greasy, the beans are…well beans…. and the crust has excellent charcoal flavor (the ‘char’), that helps flavor the sausage with a barbeque-like taste. The mozzarella cheese in these types of pizza suffers a bit, probably because adding baked beans can produce a watery taste on the pizza base. On a scale of one to ten I give the toppings a 5 and the crust a 5.5
