Fusilli's Pizza Review!

This week, I'm spending my days in technical training in a different part of downtown Phoenix from where I normally work. Since I was in a new place, I figured I should really sample the local flavor a little bit.

Ok, seriously, the training is taking place at a mall, and the pizza place is a part of that mall. I can't find anything on the web about them, however, so I assume they're independent (enough).

The place?

3110 N Central Ave Ste 107
Phoenix, AZ 85012
(602) 266-1490

To briefly sum it up - this is a mall restaurant. It tastes like bland. I have to give them credit for making their own crust. Maybe in the future they could work on making crust that doesn't taste like paper. The pepperoni was barely adequate, the cheese was ok, and there was a vague red coloring under the cheese that I assume was meant to imply sauce. However, there was not enough sauce to actually taste it.

On the other hand, it was remarkably convenient since I was in the area.

The area, by the way, is currently torn up in every direction as the Phoenix light rail project continues. I can't wait for the light rail to be done for two reasons:

One, I want to ride the light rail.

Two, it's impossible to get around while the roads are all torn up.

I've found a sneaky back route into the mall (actually, Lady Luck found it, I just use it.). I'm not willing to share the details because I don't want anyone else to use it while I still need it.

Anyway, should you find yourself hankering for pizza near Central and Earll in Phoenix... why not go somewhere else?

They get a generous one Crying Lucky*, because their staff is pretty good without being obnoxious "mall friendly."

*For those who are new to this, the scale is 1 to 5 Crying Luckies, 1 being low, 5 being high.

You can tell me your sneaky route. I'm not likely to ride 2200 miles just to clog your route. Nor to eat that pizza! Then again, maybe I would. I have family in Prescott. Next time I come down maybe you could point me towards a 5 Crying Luckies place?
