With all due respect to multiple-time Best of Tucson® Best Pizza winner Brooklyn Pizza Company, downtown Tucson's Empire Pizza and Pub has the best order of garlic knots (and garlic bread in general) in this city. No other knot in this city has the same combination of a crisp exterior with a doughy center. Empire's knots also have a healthy amount of garlic sauce slathered over them, with a healthy amount of Parmesan cheese scattered on top. But the selling point is Empire's superlative marinara dipping sauce, which ties a bow atop the entire delicious experience.
