Three Favorite Pizza Places on Fourth Avenue
You will get hungry while shopping and walking along Fourth Avenue! Here is what we found.
Magpies Gourmet Pizza
Laura and I were introduced to Magpies Gourmet Pizza when we first moved to Tucson. Magpies is a major part of the Tucson community, giving back by sponsoring and supporting many community activities and charities. Magpies specializes in magnificent gourmet pizza pies. The default crust style is deep dish, but you can request thin crust as well. A warm, delicious personal-size 8-inch create-your-own pizza starts at $7. Dine indoors or on the patio. See the Magpies menu.
Brooklyn Pizza Company
Whether you are hungry for a piping hot slice of pizza, or a whole pie, Brooklyn Pizza Company is one of Tucson’s favorite places for pizza! We’re talking New-York-thin-crust-style pizza. Awesome garlic knots, too. You can get a beer next door at Sky Bar – indoors or on the patio — and they’ll bring the pizza to you. Best of both worlds!
Caruso’s Italian Restaurant
Founded in 1938 and known for much more than pizza, Caruso’s Italian offers a full Italian menu. We’re talking pasta, seafood, meatballs, chicken dishes, and more. Dine indoors, or enjoy the outdoor patio.
Favorite Dining on Fourth Avenue
In addition to three awesome places for pizza, Fourth Avenue has some really great food!
Ermanos Craft Beer & Wine Bar
Ermanos is a warm hangout with a great assortment of wine, beer, and a very comprehensive menu. Sonoran food, grilled fish, meats, as well as salads, jambalaya, and more. Try their much-acclaimed “killer grilled cheese”.
Take a short walk under the underpass and check out The Coronet. New American comfort food, craft cocktails, and very stylish.
The B Line
Chips and salsa, burritos, glorious salads, soup & sandwich combos. B Line is beloved by university students and their parents.
Chocolate Iguana on Fourth
Awesome herb infused albacore tuna salad sandwich, fresh salads, and sweets for your sweet tooth. Heads up – the Chocolate Iguana has a new location on the West side of Fourth (just south of 6th Street). http://www.chocolateiguanaon4th.com
Maynard’s and Cup Café
For those exploring the south end of Fourth Avenue, there is Maynard’s Market & Kitchen, in the same building with Laura Tanzer’s Atelier. Maynard’s has both an informal area with live music and weekly wine tastings, and a more formal restaurant and dining room. Great sandwiches and salads and pizza! There’s also the Cup Café at Hotel Congress, a fun place with live music – be sure to check out the floor of pennies. Hotel Congress is celebrating 100 years in Tucson!
