We ordered the pesto pizza although nobody seemed to notice that there was salad in the description. It was family sized and gigantic. My sister couldn't figure out if there were mushrooms on the pizza or anchovies. If they were mushrooms they were very ripe....More

Yes, our Pizza Verde begins with a pesto base, black olives, mushrooms and tomatoes baked in the oven, then topped with chopped romaine, mozzarella cheese, red onion and fizzled Italian dressing. This description should be clear on every menu we display. I will review these...More

This place is lovely. Friendly and great food. I'm here for lunch, and will undoubtedly return for drinks! There is plenty of outdoor seating in the enclosed patio.

You will not find a larger slice of pizza anywhere in Tucson. So if big is your thing then you'll love the slices @ Mama's. It's not the best,but it will satisfy your pizza craving.

We came to Mama's for lunch. We found the staff were very friendly. We only ordered pizza slices, as we knew from past experience how big the slices were. Good taste, hot, good prices, very casual environment.

Are you ready for a New York-style 'slice' bigger than the average 'personal pizza'? One bite and you're back in 'the old neighborhood' - if your old neighborhood was around Sheepshead Bay or Howard Beach. Thin crust, hand-seasoned tomato sauce and plenty of cheese, with...More

This has become our favorite place to go for pizza, far superior to any of the chain pizzas ie Pizza Hut, Dominoes, etc. The pizza has a very good taste flavored with plenty of cheese and Italian spices. Last night the restaurant was very busy...More
