Rocco's Little Chicago was just named one of the state's best pizza restaurants by Best Things Arizona. Specializing in deep dish pizza, Rocco's also has thin crust, wings, salads and sandwiches.

When it comes to pizza, most Tucsonans have their favorite spots, despite the dozens of restaurants, types and pies across town.

Best Things Arizona, which clearly specializes in identifying the best in the state, filtered through hundreds of pizza parlors to come up with the list of the state's 10 best.

Two Tucson spots landed on the list, both of which could arguably considered Tucson classics.

Coming in at number six is Rocco's Little Chicago, 2707 E. Broadway, which has been a favorite for many going on 20 years now.

"Deep dish pizza lovers will be at home at Rocco’s Little Chicago," the article says. "Their buttery deep dish crust pairs well with massive pizzas like the fungus humungous, great Chicago fire, and the angry Samoan."

A few spots down on the list at number 10 is 1702, located (shockingly) at 1702 East Speedway Boulevard.

Opened nearly a decade ago, 1702 has 46 different types of beer on tap and specializes in epically-sized slices of pizza.

"One slice of the decadent Italia, meat, or buffalo chicken is enough to send you into a food coma," according to Best Things Arizona. "1702 mixes good wings, salads, and sides to complete an already stacked menu for pizza lovers."
