Oregano’s Pizza Bistro
If you’re looking for great pizza, pasta and salads, look no further than Oregano’s in Phoenix AZ. Large portions, great food, fresh ingredients and unique combinations – it’s all here. The traditionally dark pizza joint interior is brightened by ductwork painted red, and lots of 1950’s era memorabilia everywhere. You won’t be bored while waiting for your meal (there is way too much to look at), and you won’t be bored by your meal either!
Oregano’s Pizza Bistro in Phoenix offers three styles of pizza, all made with fresh Wisconsin cheese and housemade dough. Their Chicago-style Thin Crust Pizza choices include the ‘Numero One-o’ (housemade sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, green peppers and Wisconsin cheese), and the ‘Puerto Penasco Carne Street Pie’ (marinated carne asada, cilantro pesto, Wisconsin cheese, onion, Poblano peppers, four cheese blend, topped with Pico de Gallo, cotija cheese and cilantro, served with hot sauce).
For a Pan Pizza, you make your own, choosing from their 24 toppings. Or go right for their “pizza de resistance” – a really deep dish pizza with a thin crust topped with sauce. Just pick at least one topping for the filling and you’re set.
The Rest of the Menu at Oregano’s Pizza Bistro in Phoenix
Appetizers include the usual choices (fried zucchini, calamari, bruschetta, wings etc.), as well as some not so usual choices. The Mexican/Italian marriage continues with the ‘Huge Guaca-Tony’ (Italian guacamole on pizza crust chips), the ‘Lots O’ Broccoli’ (When did you ever see sautéed broccoli as an appetizer?), and the ‘Tree Hugger Skillet’ – more veggies!
There are eight salad options, including the ‘Big Beefstro Salad’ and a customer favorite (one of many), the Pablo Picasso Mexican Salad (fajita chicken, romaine, cotija cheese, four cheese blend, tomatoes, cilantro and onions with a spicy chipotle ranch and corn strips). You’re not going to go hungry with these salads; they’re huge!
Six sandwich choices round out the menu, and these are big too. They come with ½ pound of meat (give or take)! Oregano’s also has ten pasta selections including ‘The Alfredo the Dark’ (imagine a very spicy Alfredo with a decidedly Mexican twist).
