The Tiny Town In Arizona That’s The Next Pizza Capital Of The World
In small towns, it can be difficult to find a good restaurant of a particular style – let alone several; however, the small town of Bisbee has four epic pizza joints that tourists and locals alike can’t get enough of. Who wants a slice?
1. Screaming Banshee
With a population of just over 5,000, Bisbee isn't even on most people's radar... let alone top their restaurant bucket list. Adding to that inconspicuousness is Screaming Banshee's location in a former gas station, which was renovated just enough without losing the grunge element. Within these unassuming walls, you'll find gourmet pizza creations like Thai Peanut, fully-loaded Baked Potato, and even dessert pies!
Address: 200 Tombstone Canyon, Bisbee, AZ 85603
Hours: Tuesday & Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., Thursday - Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (Screaming Banshee is closed on Mondays)
This hole-in-the-wall combines two cuisines that, although geographically close, couldn't be any further apart in terms of flavor: Greek and Italian. Owner "Gus the Greek" is a charming man who might just have the warmest heart in Bisbee. The pizza is consistently delicious, with a thick and chewy crust patrons can't get enough of.
Address: 1101 South Naco Highway # 121, Bisbee, AZ 85603
Hours: Monday - Saturday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sunday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
3. Dylan's Pizza Bistro
Family-owned and operated, Dylan's is the epitome of small-town charm. Whether you prefer thick or thin crust, vegetarian or meat lover's, saucy drizzle on top or not, the options are truly endless and can be customized to your exact preferences. Pro-tip: don't pass up the bread knots as an appetizer - they also have a cinnamon version for dessert!
Address: West, 851, AZ-92, Bisbee, AZ 85603
Hours: Monday & Wednesday-Saturday frrom 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Dylan's is closed on Tuesdays)
4. Bisbee's Table
Bisbee's Table isn't exclusively a pizza joint, but pizza is undoubtedly one of the most popular menu items. The crowd favorite is topped with wild mushrooms, caramelized onions, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, and a parmesan cream sauce. Grilled chicken & basil pesto is a close runner-up, and you really can't go wrong with a classic Margherita.
Address: Copper Queen Plaza, 2 Main Street, Bisbee, AZ 85603
Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
