Pizza, Pizza, Pizza
Mary Zaepfel and Kathryn Jensen opened Mi Pizza (pronounced "My Pizza") at 4558 E. Broadway Blvd., Suite 100, six months ago, but only recently got their sign up.

Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and noon to 8 p.m., Sunday; 322-5865; mipizzatucson.com.
Macaroni-and-cheese pizza? It's a novel concept, and officials at Tucson first CiCi's Pizza Buffet, at 2912 W. Ina Road, say it's rather tasty.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday; and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday; 408-3266.
A new Marco's Pizza (10550 N. La Cañada Drive; 297-6500) has opened in Oro Valley, says owner Jack Ziegler. The buzz last year was that 11 Marco's locations were slated to open in Tucson, but the first one, on South 12th Avenue, closed after a few months (sources say it may reopen), while another at 6330 E. Golf Links Road appears to be doing fine. The Oro Valley location is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., daily, with delivery available.
