Desert Flowers THERE'S MORE TO PHOENIX-SCOTTSDALE THAN GOLF by Merrill Shindler Pizza at Pizzeria Bianco. PHOTOS: JOHN HALL PHOTOGRAPHY Chef Chris Bianco. 132  /  the tasting panel  /  april 2013 W hen I think of the Phoenix-Scottsdale area, I think of it as the birthplace of such family-friendly restaurant concepts as P.F. Chang's China Bistro and The Kona Grill. I think of it as the Land of Many Golf Courses. And a locale that's so infernal come the summer, locals will offer dissertations on the fine art of opening car doors without burning your hands. But that would be missing the forest for the trees (or is it the trees for the forest). For Phoenix-Scottsdale is also home to some of the most innovative restaurants in America. And that includes what many consider the best pizzeria this side of Naples. PHOTO © 2013 THE FIVE STAR TRAVEL CORPORATION RESTAURANTS THAT MATTER
