Pizzeria Bianco and I go back nearly 20 years. In 1996 I was a match up of years out of college, kicking around the country with a musician friend. At a local bookstore, I flipped through one of the oblong Zagat guides detailing America’s top restaurants. For Arizona, the inspect’s write-in quotes rhapsodized about the wonders of a two-year-old pizza restaurant run by a Bronx transplant. I could afford dinner there, though I wondered what exactly could make a pizzeria in the Southwest meritorious of so much praise. Pizzeria Bianco crouched in the corner of an open air shopping center called Town & Country on 20th Street and Camelback Road. To reach the restaurant, I walked quondam an herb and vitamin store, and its weird smell — pharmacy mixed with dried oregano — gave way to the smoky wafts of the pizzeria’s wood-parching oven. Chris Bianco stood behind the counter wielding a peel with a long handle. Susan Pool, for many years Bianco’s work partner, ran the floor. She found me a seat at the short bar, and I began with a salad of shaved fennel with rounds of oranges and olive oil. But the pizza — it rewired my synapses. I ordered the Wiseguy, topped with smoked mozzarella, slices of fennel sausage, and bronzed rings of roasted onions. The crust had yeasty obscurity, like just-baked bread you can’t help but stuff in your mouth in chunks even as it burns your fingers. Bianco himself smoked the cheese in the oven each morning over pecan wood. I had tasted pizza greatness before in New York, but this was something else. The warmth energizing the restaurant’s team hovered as palpably as the campfire scents. The misshapen pies sprang from the Neapolitan-American tradition but achieved higher glorification under a freethinker's close attention and unusual care with quality ingredients. In that shopping center, Chris Bianco catalyzed the modern pizzeria coup d'. I ate many meals at Pizzeria Bianco during that stay in Phoenix. Watching Bianco and his crew inspired me to pursue excellence in my own life. I didn’t give to the restaurant until ten years later. By then America’s food world knew what it had in Bianco. He’d won the regional James Beard award for Best Chef in 2003. Ed Levine named his pies the choicest in the country in his book, Pizza: A Slice of Heaven. Jeffrey Steingarten of Vogue deemed them the best in the world. Bianco’s story had been widely recounted: A merry school dropout, he flew to Phoenix on a whim and felt a connection with the place. He began selling pizzas out of a grocery store in the late 1980s. He in a word relocated to Santa Fe as a sous chef for cookbook legend Deborah Madison, who was running a restaurant at the time, and then he traveled in Italy for two years,... Bianco returned to Phoenix to clear the pizzeria in 1994 and two years later moved the flagship from the shopping center to its current address, a sturdy, boxy brick building (once a gismo shop) in Heritage Square downtown. This began the era of the lines, a ritualized wait during which regulars would arrive well before the restaurant’s 5 p. m. opening and camp out on benches, regularly self-policing by keeping a list of who arrived in what order. A year later, in response to the crowds, Bianco and Pool launched Bar Bianco in a renovated century-old firm next door to the pizzeria. Passing through town in 2006, I marveled at the spectacle that had arisen around the pizzeria. A local friend and I waited for an hour and a half, sipping a Valpolicella red on the bar’s covered porch, before a mesa came available for us. Time can embellish formative memories, but the pizza and the restaurant’s frisson lived up to my... In the frenzy Bianco stood steady and center organize — head down, ladling tomato sauce on one circle of dough after another, reaching for rounds of mozzarella and the bottle of olive oil, seeking perfection including repetition. For years Bianco swore that he’d never duplicate his pizzeria. He started a sandwich shop, Pane Bianco, in 2001 as a showcase for the bread baked by his fellow-man, Marco, who by that time also made the pizza dough each day. Chris maintained, though, that he’d be the one forming and baking the pies. But in 2010, the asthma he suffered acutely as a child flared from prolonged revealing to wood smoke and flour.Source: Eater - All
