We would sit outside in the Phoenix summer sun from 3-5pm. Usually 110-120 degrees for sure. But it was worth it. Many wonderful memories sweating and playing cards just waiting for the magic minute they would open. It was a ritual of friends and family for many years. The prize for this thermal torture? The first seating for the Sonny Boy pizza. The wood-fired vegetables. YUM! Never would we have guessed that someday this famous PIZZERIA BIANCO would have our name on the menu. They have used our goat cheese for several years and we truly appreciate their support of local farms.
Now, there is a new Pizzeria Bianco coming to Tucson. Wait, that’s not all, they are opening another in the Town & Country Mall in Phoenix. No more need for our ritual card games. You can get a Sonny Boy without the wait at THREE different places. We know this is for the best. However, it was fun to some ‘degree’ sitting there and earning our pie!
