Magpies specialty pizzas are the best! Much better than any frozen or store bought pizza. Very worth the money!

I've only eaten here a few times, mostly when I'm with people who are too snooty for Brooklyn's pizza. Magpie's is certainly good enough to merit a positive review, but to be honest the prices are too high for pizza, in my opinion, and the preparation is done with a heavy hand, which leads to a pizza that I find texture-ly unappealing.

Pros: Many, many options

Cons: Pricing, and pizza is too thick for my liking

This place has gone downhill over the years. The pizzas are no longer good and they have horrible customer service. If you say anything bad about the pizza to them, they start to lie and give a bunch of excuses.

This pizza place is losing customers left and right because of their fallen quality. Papa Johns pizzas are now much better than this place (and cheaper).

The selection of toppings here is immense! I love this place and I've loved it since I was a little child. It's fresh and simply amazing. Last time I was there I got artichoke hearts and green chillies and it was so delicious and filling I even had a couple slices for the next day's lunch!

Horrible pizza... expensive price... horrible employees

The pizza was cold and didn't even have the right toppings. The manager insisted they didn't make a mistake even though the menu said that The Giant had this and that toppings. Refused to give money back for their mistakes and had a horrible experience. To top it off, the pizza was cold, soggy, and tasted gross.

We used to love Magpies, with its whole-wheat crust and soy cheese. Then we started ordering the build-your-own pies and that's when we started running into problems.

Despite paying for double - and eventually triple - artichokes they consistently skimp on them.

In addition, they somehow screw up order about half the time. More often than not, when we call they give us a discount or sometimes a free pie, but it's getting frustrating.

This quaint little pizza joint in the heart of the University of Arizona is a perfect place to go after a long day of shopping along University street. They have really good homeade pizza.

At Magpies you either get a good pizza or a horrible pizza. I had some good pizzas from Magpies, like the ones from the Cortaro Farms site. But, I've also had HORRIBLE pizzas, like the ones from the Speedway site. When I say horrible, I mean the pizza didn't have the right toppings, the pizza missed a few toppings, the pizza was cold, the pizza was very soggy, the managers (like the one at the Speedway site) were rude and don't understand proper customer conduct, and bad customer service.

Magpies has a guarantee that if you don't like their pizza, they will give you a refund. That's a COMPLETE LIE. Its just a marketing ploy they will not stand by. That tells me there's a lack of integrity at Magpies.

Anyways, when I had those bad pizza, where the pizza missed some toppings, the pizza was completely cold (I arrived when they said it would be finished), the pizza was completely soggy, and the manager refused they made a mistake, I asked for the refund, but they said because the transaction already went through, they couldn't do that. I asked about their guarantee, but they said that they just "IGNOR IT."

So, at Magpies, if you're lucky, then you will get a good pizza, otherwise, it will be horrible and you lost your money.

Magpie's offers great pizza and is thankfully located all around the city.

Their menu is especially impressive because it offers a wide range of vegetables from artichokes to fresh roasted eggplant. You also have your choice of regular, sourdough and wheat crusts.

The 4th Avenue location offers pretty quick seating on the weekends. However, you can get a cheaper pie elsewhere in the city.

The staff is nice and prompt, and the kitchen turns order overs quickly.

You can even order your pizza for "take and bake" meaning, they deliver it (or you pick it up) unbaked, and take it home and pop it in the oven at your convenience.

Overall really great pizza to people who love their vegetables. My favorite: The Greek.

PROS: Awesome pizza, nice staff, nice selection of toppings, dough
CONS: A little pricey

Despite placing my pizza order 2 hours in advance, and asking that it PLEASE not arrive any later than 12:30pm, my order arrived 15 minutes late. Both pizzas (I ordered 2 jumbos; the white pizza and the mediterranean) were cold and barely edible, certainly not worth the $50+tip that I paid. The white pizza was flavorless and the mediterranean was soggy. I can't believe this pizza passes as 'gourmet.' Please....I've gotten better pizza at the grocery store! Maybe Magpies was having a bad day. I suppose my experience could have been a fluke but I'm certainly not going to purchase pizza from there again.

The pizza at Magpies is good, but it doesn't live up to Eclectic Pizza... I thought the crust wasn't very flavorful, saw the options after we ordered. The topping were unusual and high quality. The sauce had great flavor. We ate the pizza at the speedway location. Two small tables made it not enjoyable to eat there. I would definately take it to go next time, if I couldn't get to Eclectic that is.

I recently moved here from New Jersey... The pizza at Magpies isn't bad, but it doesn't live up to real NJ Italian Pizzeria pizza, and Magpies is much more expensive than anywhere else I've ever had pizza... (Over 16 dollars for a large one topping pizza which isn't really all that large.)..... I can get a steak dinner for that much, so I had to give Magpies a below average rating... To me, 16 or 17 bucks is way too much to pay for an average pizza with one topping, made by local high school kids... Maybe they raise their prices during the high tourist season, since those are January prices, but as far as I'm concerned, those prices are ridiculous.

This is the place to go if you're in the mood for exotic flavors and filling pizza. The greek pizza with mozzarella, feta, spinach, pine nuts, basil, garlic, and sun dried tomatoes is to die for and the spicy jc pesto with jalapenos, nuts, and cheese combos is a southwest treat. Roasted veggie salads are great too and your order is ready fairly quick. Yes the prices are higher than your ordinary pizza but you get what you pay for and this is worth it!

This really is some delicious, gourmet pizza. I strongly suggest going with one of their creations or coming up with something creative yourself because a plain old one topping with regular pizza sauce won't do this place justice. The pesto is delicious and a delicious and healthy alternative is the whole wheat pizza dough. And a little hint....if you give them another pizza company's magnet, they'll take $5 off your order! Makes Magpies much more reasonably priced.

Loved the unique choices. Checked out the Houghton location in person before ordering and found it very clean and appetizing. The home delivery prompt as promised and pizza hot & fresh on arrival. We'll order again.

Amazing! Wide variety of toppings, great sauce - even the soy cheese pizza is to die for! Also one of the cleanest places I've eaten in - A- (could go a little heavier on the toppings).
