Skyline Pizza Sauces Up Deliciousness
Can you believe one of the freshest and best pizzas can be had in San Tan Valley? On the Northeast corner of Sierra Vista Drive and Skyline Drive, sits a little restaurant called Skyline Pizza. When I walked in the decor took me a little by surprise, the order area has a mint green wall and the dining room has dark chocolate walls. The tables are all black. A bench lines the length of the wall, and the other side of some of the tables have small wooden chairs in various colors.
I wouldn’t let their strange decor deter me, having been a pizza restaurant manager for 5 years, I was anxious to try this newly discovered pizzeria and see if they measured up to my strict standards. I ordered the Greek Sal-ad, a side of bread sticks and a slice of the T-Rex Pizza. The service was quick and the owner Mike was friendly.
While I was waiting for my food, I tried some of their fresh brewed tea. It was good, but wasn’t sweet enough. Being from the South, I like a little tea with my sugar.
The Greek Salad is comprised of their House Salad (mixed greens, grape tomatoes, shredded carrots, cucum-bers, croutons, shredded mozzarella) with black olives, artichoke hearts, red onion and feta added. I had it with the house garlic vinaigrette.
The salad was crisp and delicious. With just the right amount of crunch. The croutons were crunchy on the out-side and soft in the middle. And they were made from scratch.
Now for the pièce de résistance, the T-Rex Pizza Slice. It had pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon, beef and Romano cheese. First off this slice was huge. Like larger than Shaq’s shoes huge. The sauce was light with fine hints of oregano.
The crust was good, but could have used a little pizzazz with some seasoning. Next time I go back, I’ll see if Mike is willing to season my crust for me. Now the sausage on this bad boy was amazing. It isn’t that pro-cessed balls of garbage you get at fast food delivery places, this is hand-sliced real Italian sausage.
In addition to the T-Rex they have 18 other specialty pizzas. Like the DeVinci (pepperoni, salami, Canadian ba-con, pepperoncini, provolone), Border (beef, jalapeno, roma tomato, onion, taco sauce), Florence (cream cheese, chicken, sun-dried tomato, basil, Romano) and the Crustacean (Cajun shrimp, green onion, feta, roast-ed garlic, Romano).
Pizza crusts available are: thin crust, original (hand-tossed), Sicilian and stuffed. For the brave or for parties, they have a 26” pizza called the Big Sky.
Also served are calzones, meatballs, hot wings, sandwiches, and desserts.
They don’t serve alcohol, but do have a BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle) license.
Prices are really good. Specialty pizza slices are only $5. And the deal is even sweeter since any menu item is an additional 15% off for the remainder of the month. Alternatively you can get a free order of bread sticks with your pizza order instead.
Skyline Pizza also offers delivery to San Tan Valley, Queen Creek and Anthem.
