Where to Find Fine Pizza Toppings--PHX

modthyrth | Dec 16, 2008 09:29 AM

I've just completed building a wood-fired pizza oven in my backyard, and will be conducting the curing fires over the next seven days. That means I'll have an insanely hot (800+ degree) oven ready for making fabulous pizzas in just 7 days. Time to find out where to get the best ingredients in town so I'll be ready to go the first time the oven gets up to temperature!

Obviously, Queen Creek Olive Mill olive oil. Pork shop pork products. Herbs from my herb garden.

But really good fresh mozzarella? Caputo typo 00 flour? San Marzano tomatoes? Other high quality ingredients? I'm in Gilbert, but I'm willing to travel for fine foods to make my pizzas. I'm keenly interested in finding the basics, but am a cheese fiend and would be delighted to experiment with all sorts of toppings.

My mother is a professional pastry chef, so feel free to suggest commercial-only sources. We can get in.
