Since day one she has been a Rockstar and has mastered everything we’ve thrown at her. Last month when we sold desserts to raise money for Phoenix Children’s Hospital, she was one of the top sellers in the company! Lizzie is super smart (she wants to study Organic Chemistry and Chemical Engineering – yikes!), and an absolute pleasure to work with. We are so grateful to have her on our team and it won’t be long before she’s cross trained in every other Front of House position.

Thank you, Lizzie!

Kristopher Schmid

Our Heart of the House Employee of the Month is Kristopher Schmid.

He can work any position flawlessly and helps train our new staff because his food is always on point and takes so much pride in putting out a perfect product for our guests. He’s currently going to school for a degree in Chemical Engineering (yep, he’s crazy smart too!) but we hope we don’t lose him once he graduates, Kris is definitely one in a million. He makes everyone laugh and after a stressful shift he’s the one high fiving everyone and keeping spirits high.

We love you Kris and thank you for all you do for us!

Hannah is full of great questions and questionable trivia (mostly regarding the life and times of cetaceans). In addition to being a stellar coworker and all-around good person she’s a mean one at teaching a Rubik’s Cube who’s boss. If see her working in the lobby and have the nerves of steel, it would take to challenge her to a Rubik’s Cube solve-off…. try it. She will destroy you.

Thank you for all you do Hannah!

Thank you for all that you do Adriana!!

Jay Garcia

Central Phoenix Location (Front of the House)

EOM for FOH is Jay Garcia! Jay joined the family just over a year ago when his girlfriend (and now fiancé!) recommended him for hire and it was one of the best decisions we made! Jay started with us as a cashier and even though he is still rocking it out over there in our pick-up area, he is now one of our main bussers that you’ll probably see running circles around the restaurant on Friday nights.  Jay is currently going to NAU for exercise science to hopefully be a physical therapist one day and has a passion for cars so if you’re ever in the store and spot him, feel free to pick his brain about Tessla’s, anatomy, or his flame-covered crocs that he insists on wearing.

Thank you so much for your hard work Jay, we love you and your ridiculous shoe choices. 

Hunter Novak

Central Phoenix Location (Heart of the House)

Hunter has been working in the Heart of House for about three and half years now and is one of our HOH Leads. If you come eat at our Central Phoenix location, there’s a good chance Hunter opened the kitchen that day. He balances two jobs, going to school, and still shows up with his game face on to cut pizzas with laser precision no matter how fast they’re pouring out of the oven. You will seriously lose a finger if you get in Hunter’s zone…. but that’s OK, because he’s studying to become an EMT, so he can patch you right back up afterward.

Thanks for being a part of the Spinato’s Family, Hunter!

Erica Mayer

Scottsdale Location

Erica has been a part of our Scottsdale family for about 2 years!  She is a 2nd grade teacher and her kids love her.  She works so hard shaping our future leaders and then comes in to help all her regulars out!

Welcome to the Spinato’s Family Kitchen

A place to create, cook and learn.

Spinato's Kitchen
We don’t have just any old kitchen. We have one that plays many roles in our process. We see it as our road to a brighter, better-tasting future. This includes 4,200 square feet of prep and kitchen space where we can make our own ricotta and fresh mozzarella, as well as fire-roast locally grown vegetables and carefully cook slow-roasted Italian beef. Methods like these come from time-honored traditions passed from family member to family member, like our Italian cousins who will teach us the authentic recipes they use in their two Verona gelaterias. We will also be making our own pasta, adding a fresh twist to the classic Spinato’s dishes that guests have loved for decades.
These delicious coming-soon opportunities are just a few ways our new Family Kitchen will make your Spinato’s experience even better. We will also be adding a quick-service marketplace where you can purchase some of our handmade ingredients and off-menu items to bring home to your family and prepare in your own traditional ways.

Beyond the dishes you know and love, our new kitchen acts as a laboratory—allowing us to experiment and diversify our menu offerings. We know we have to keep up and evolve with the fast-paced lives of our guests. Just like you never settle, neither do we in our pursuit of the best that pizza has to offer. Along with making the well-loved standards (dough, sauce, desserts, etc.), we have a dedicated test space for trying new recipes and the tools to whip them up. Our kitchen is equipped with advanced pizza-making machinery: a dough divider rounds and cuts 1,200 dough balls per hour and containment units cold-ferment our dough for 48 hours, leading to an airy, more flavorful crust. With the room and resources to try new tricks and make some magic, we’re excited to bring you consistent, delicious, family-made food.

The Spinato's Kitchen
The kitchen is a classroom. It teaches our family and our guests about where our food comes from and the process it goes through to become the delicious slice of heaven that ends up on your plate. It’s where we pass on classic techniques that started with Ken Spinato’s first pizzeria. But just as we learn from our origins, we know what we need to do to protect our future. We pride ourselves on practicing sustainable behaviors to reduce waste. Since everything we make in the Spinato’s Family Kitchen has your satisfaction and the wellbeing of our environment in mind, we know you’ll enjoy what comes out of it. Chow down, guilt free.
