Known for its inventive pies and large slices, Mr. Moto has been serving pizza to San Diegans for over a decade. And while owner Gibran Fernandez may be a San Diego native, he’s officially ready to cross state lines. He got the idea from a friend and Phoenix local, who was frustrated by the lack of pizza-by-the-slice options in his neighborhood. “We have lots of customers who travel to San Diego from Arizona,” Fernandez said. “Now, finally, we can come to them.”

Arcadia’s vibrant population and picturesque scenery was also a draw for Fernandez. Located at the foot of Camelback Mountain, the area is lush with citrus groves and leafy streets, and is home to many of Phoenix’s luxury resorts.

The newest Mr. Moto Pizza is set to open in Arcadia Village, at 3923-3967 E Camelback Road. According to Fernandez himself, you should be able to order a face-sized slice in about six to eight months.
