Two of Camp Verde's favorite restaurateurs are back.
It's been almost three years since Steve and Kim Buysee sold the Dash In sandwich shop on Main Street and opened Famous Pizza & Craft Beer in the Village of Oak Creek.
One need only stop at Famous Pizza on a Friday night to understand the move has been a huge success.
Now, trusting that success begets success, Steve and Kim are coming back to Camp Verde, this time bringing Famous Pizza with them.
Earlier this month, Famous Pizza opened its Camp Verde branch at the intersection of Interstate 17 and State Route 260 between Starbucks and Quiznos (in the former Cold Stone suite).
The Buysees' success has always been based on the two pillars of a great restaurant -- great food at a fair price.
They bring with them a menu of specialty pizzas that includes white (olive oil based white garlic sauce, tomato, spices and cheese), Greek (like a white, only with feta cheese) and Mexican (pepperoni, meatball, onion, jalapeno and hot sauce).
And dare we say it, Famous Pizza offers anchovies, for those who understand what a great (or is it Famous) pizza should be.
Sandwiches on fresh-baked bread are available as are sandwiches served on fresh bake croissant rolls.
If you are not in the mood for a whole pizza, Famous Pizza serves it by the slice every day along with a half-dozen salads.
You won't have to muddle your way through six different crust options, because Famous makes theirs the right way, a little crust and a whole lot of "stuff."
Famous delivers, too.
And one more thing -- they offer appetizers including chicken wings, garlic bread with marinara and spanakopita (spinach pie in phyllo crust).
For delivery, or just to say thanks for coming back, call (928) 567-7200.

Famous pizza is good pizza. The other pizza offerings in town are mediocre to just plain bad. What Camp Verde really needs is a good size restaurant that offers a healthy, creative menu - not another drug store selling soda, candy, and Chinese made knick knacks. Pizza is an occasional food, although to look around town at all the overweight people you'd never know it. Anyone else think the Walgreens going up was sited poorly? I see plainly one side of this drug store with a wall feet from Finnie Flat that is too high and out of proportion to the buildings nearby. Driving down Cliffs Parkway toward the post office, all you see is another high wall blocking the view. Thanks for approving that siting plan Camp Verde, you shot yourself in the foot once again and ensure that our Verde Valley reputation as most clueless town around continues unabated.
