LAMP Pizzeria is your new local spot for authentic Italian pies

More from this show

LAMP Wood Oven Pizzeria, located in North Scottsdale, brings the Italian heat from the oven right to your table. Immediately when you walk in the restaurant, you are greeted with the warmth of a red brick oven that radiates throughout the room.

The team at LAMP, which is the initials of owners Lindsay and Matt Pilato, create tasty Neapolitan pizzas exclusively fired up in an oven fueled by oat and pecan wood. The wood reaches temperatures up to 800 degrees and is carefully handled.

When it comes to the key of LAMP’s signature taste, it is really all about their authentic pizza dough. “It’s light and airy, has a little bit of crisp on the outside, and a nice chew to it,” owner Lindsay Pilato said.

But their passion for creating the perfect pizza doesn’t stop there. Everything from the sauce to the cheese, to the fresh toppings is a point of pride for LAMP Pizzeria.

Guest Erin Mulay was eager to share the story behind her pick for review. As a mother of five, she met Lindsay Pilato in a music class. The rest, as they say, is history.

“You can tell everything they are making is fresh, homemade from scratch, that day,” she said.

Mulay’s menu pick is always the “Simple Pizza” and it’s topped with fresh arugula and prosciutto. But LAMP does not just offer pizza, it also has an extensive list of appetizers, antipasti, salads and beverages.

Guest Navid Askarinya ordered their eggplant parmesan and beef meatballs that he described as “juicy.” Drenched in tomato sauce, it’s a flavorful bite that is simple yet satisfying.

For dessert, guests tried creamy-based cannoli and crunchy hazelnut gelato made in-house and to perfection.

It’s safe to say this inviting restaurant is a dine-in spot that caters to all and ensures that everyone gets a true taste of Italy.
