Sicilian Family Owned & Operated.

Our family dough is very soft and creates a flavorful crust with optimal hydration. 
This results in high-quality protein and low gluten content in a consistent long-rise traditional dough. This is because our flour is the Gold Standard for real Italian pizza.
 It is additive free, all-natural, and milled slowly for optimal water absorption. So enjoy!

All Wines by the bottle or glass are HALF OFF 
ALL NIGHT RESTAURANT WIDE! Starts 6pm right after Happy Hour!

 Brugos Pizza, lovingly owned and run by Troy and myself, Christina Luisa (Cefalu) McDonald, Cave Creek residents! Growing up the way I did, I want our place to feel like you are coming over to our house for dinner! You see, my Dad really did come over on a boat from Sicily. My mother was the first American to marry into my father’s otherwise all Sicilian family! She learned to cook from my Aunt who didn’t speak any English, and Mom didn’t speak Italian! Which is why all the recipes are authentic. Some were never written down until now. I come from a long, time honored line of Italian family owned restaurants some who are very famous, more then we will ever be! Hint. If you’ve been to Alioto’s on the Wharf of San Francisco, Swirl in Santa Rosa, or Balistreri’s in Milwaukee then you know who I am related to! 
But it’s more than traditional and the not so traditional food here. We want you to feel at home, and hope you do. 
Here’s how. Our people will become your friends. Attentive without being overbearing, or arrogant. You’re not, were not. We want you to enjoy yourselves and consider it a blessing to take care of you. That’s how I was raised. So welcome to our gorgeous bistro, built just for you. Order a fabulous glass of wine, or a famous Italian Margarita while you peruse the sumptuous menu. Then, relax among great friends and family as you listen to Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, and Rosemary Clooney, inside the bistro, or dine on our patio. Also, let me tell you about our Wednesday Wine Night. All of our wines by the glass or bottle are half off when you dine. We are proud to carry on the small, traditional, neighborhood restaurant here. Just like the ones we all grew up with. 
Now decide if you are wanting homemade lasagna or if you're in the mood for pizza. Ours is a secret Roman style recipe, additive free, high protein, low gluten, optimal water absorption, traditional dough that takes time to proof. We make it right here every day. Next we hand spin into pies that are both chewy and crispy. Toppings are seasonal and procured locally whenever possible: savory cured meats, fresh, real, imported cheeses, homemade sauces, local produce and greens. After trying us, we hope you will agree and find it among your favorites too! Prego! 
Heading into our 17th year! Were so glad to live in our home of Cave Creek! Grazie Troy & Christina. Open every day at 4pm.
(exceptions: Closed Christmas Eve. Christmas Day. New Years Day. Superbowl Sunday. July 4th.)
