I had dinner at a new pizzeria located just up the street from me a few nights ago. And, when I say "up" the street I do mean up. My street heads up the mountain toward the Phoenix Mountain Preserve and this new place is at the very top with the preserve just across the road. That made sitting on the patio facing the mountains a great option.
The place is called Base Pizzeria and they pride themselves on organic ingredients that have been locally sourced. My pizza with crushed tomatoes and spicy sausage was delicious! I'll be back for the view and the pizza.
I was there until after dark and I noticed all the flashlights I could see very high up on the mountain. It always amazes me the number of people who go hiking up those mountain trails after dark.
