This Phoenix pastry chef is opening a pizzeria on Roosevelt Row. Here’s what we know – AZCentral

Metro Phoenix pastry chef Tammie Coe is best known for her cupcakes, cookies and breakfast pastries. Pretty soon you can add pizza to her repertoire.

Coe plans to reopen her storefront on Roosevelt Row, Tammie Coe Cakes, as a bakery and pizzeria called Hot Daisy Pizza. The doors are scheduled to open as early as next month.

Hot Daisy Pizza will still offer Coe’s signature cakes and pastries, including the popular red velvet cake and almond croissants, packaged to-go. But the shop will also offer pizza, sold by slice and as whole pies. She described the pizza as “New York style meets California.”

Coe said her new concept focuses on the lunch crowd — students and workers in downtown Phoenix who want to grab a quick bite to eat, but at the same quality as a sit-down restaurant.

“I just find there’s a demand for pizza down there,” Coe said. “There’s a few places doing pizza, but not like this, the quick service.”

What to expect at Hot Daisy Pizza

The counter-order bakery and pizzeria will have a few tables set up outside for people to stand and eat, but otherwise will be a to-go shop, Coe said.

Two of her three ovens can go up to 800 degrees, allowing pizzas to bake in three minutes, she added. Since parking on Roosevelt Street is limited, Coe said she wants people to be able to call ahead of time and and pull up curb-side for a speedy pick-up.

A slice ranges from $3.75 to $5 for a quarter of a 14-inch pizza. The menu will feature along with standard cheese and pepperoni:

  • The “Italian Stallion,” a meat lover’s pizza.
  • Margherita with burrata and truffle oil.
  • Elote pizza.
  • Daily specials, such as mac n’ cheese pizza, sausage and ricotta, asparagus with spicy bacon.

Along with pizza there will also be salads and sandwiches. While Tammie Coe Cakes has two other locations, one in Scottsdale and one in Terminal 4 of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, her Roosevelt location is the only one that will serve pizza.

Coe has been in the pastry business for about 18 years. She’s had the idea of starting a pizzeria for two years and felt it was time to join the neighborhood’s food community.

“My whole intention is for it to be quick, yummy and something you would normally get at a sit-down restaurant, but you can have it in your car and be satisfied,” Coe said. “That’s my goal.”

Hot Daisy Pizza will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day.
