The Best Pizza in Sedona


Since mid-July, Rotten Johnny’s Wood-Fired Pizza Pie establishment in The Collective has offered Villagers and visitors alike high-quality thin-crust pizza.

Rotten Johnny’s is a nice complement to the fine dining J Wine Bistro, not only because of the different menus and styles of service but also the hours and days of operation. Choices are what we like.

The hours for Rotten Johnny’s are: 7 days a week 11am to 9pm (J Wine Bistro is open Tuesday-Sunday 4-9 p.m.)

We suggest to first order the Antipasto Salad –good and almost a meal in itself.

Rotten Johnny’s has other interesting ingredients available as an extra for cost or part of the general menu offerings: Genoa salami, hot soppressata, capocollo, pancetta, fennel sausage, caponata, Calbrian chiles, ricotta, arugula, wood-roasted mushrooms, black truffle and Mediterranean olives.

There are seven 13-inch Red Pizzas and seven 13-inch White pizzas to choose from. Half & half is possible for no extra charge.

There is cheese-less pizza, more than one vegetarian pizza and several loaded pizzas.

The Pancetta Pizza includes caramelized onions. It was served timely and more than satisfied our appetites.

Deciding on beer for our beverage, some choices are Deschutes Black Porter, Mother’s Road Tower Station IPA, and local Huff Brewing Company Orange Blossom. Many other beverages, soft and alcoholic, are available.

John is known for keeping an excellent wine menu and that is available by the glass or bottle.

Good use is made of the wood-fire as shrimp, olives and vegetable of the day are offered, along with burrata and chili peppers stuffed with tuna.

Desserts, locally made, are also available. Pizzas take only a few minutes to bake in the hot oven, so wait time isn’t an issue. Call in orders take 15-20 minutes.
