The Velvet Elvis Pizza Company was voted one of Arizona's best 25 restaurants by Arizona Highways magazine, and it only takes one visit to this pizza bar and cafe to understand why. Colorful and kitschy, the Velvet Elvis stems from the imagination of Owner and Executive Chef Cecilia San Miguel, whose artful vision of pop idolatry and spiritual devotion are captured in the large, hand-made shrines dedicated to the King of Rock & Roll and the Virgin Mary. Don't let the playful decor food you, though. The menu is dead serious about crafting great pizza and calzone creations from scratch, all loaded with fresh, organic veggies and specially-prepared meats. There's also a fresh juice bar on-site, as well as a good variety of microbrews and wines on the drink menu. And yes, there is a Velvet Elvis painting on the premises.
