Jaime's Local Love: My Slice of the Pie

Randy Bortin is a fourth-generation Phoenician with 25 years of restaurant experience.  After five years of managing a family restaurant called "America's Taco Shop" alongside brother Terry Bortin and sister-in-law America Correles Bortin, Randy Bortin rolled the dice, sold his house and went all in with "My Slice of the Pie Pizzeria," even before a lease was executed.

Randy Bortin collaborated with a long time friend, Josh Mason, to create the foundation of great New York style pizza: great dough and great sauce.  Heavily influence by the teachings of America Correles Bortin, Randy Bortin infused his sister-and-law's style of cooking into pizza.  From this point forward it became, "Where New York meets the Southwest." 

You'll find house made dough, sauces and dressings, meatballs with a Southwestern twist and good, old New York style pizza. While there, you can also try the Al Pastor pizza or the Carne Asada pizza. And check out the brightly painted wall featuring the Valley's iconic Camelback mountain.

Jaime Cerreta

If that Cerreta name makes visions of little green mints dance in your head, you're onto something. Yes, Jaime is “one of those candy people." Her grandfather started the Cerreta Candy Company in 1968, and her father worked there for 45 years. Many of her aunts, uncles, and cousins, as well as her grandfather -- Mr. C. himself -- are still making candy at the Glendale-based factory. Jaime's favorites are the Peanut Butter Pizzazz and the famous French Mint Truffles.

Jaime is a graduate of Arizona State University and the Walter Cronkite School of Broadcast Journalism.

She left the Valley after college for her first TV job as a one-man-band reporter in Joplin, Mo. She then produced and anchored a morning show in Springfield, Mo. before moving to Beaumont, Texas, where she worked as the morning anchor/reporter.

Before returning to the Valley in August 2013, Jaime spent the past seven years in Oklahoma City, where she served as the evening anchor at the local Fox station. Jaime anchored Oklahoma Associated Press award-winning newscasts for Best Newscast and Best Election Coverage. She was named one of Oklahoma Magazine's Best of the Best. Jaime stayed on the desk for up to 12 hours at a time when the deadly tornadoes hit in May 2013. She has covered hurricanes, hail storms, blizzards, flooding and droughts.

Some of her favorite experiences in Oklahoma include shooting one-on-one basketball with Blake Griffin and talking football with Sam Bradford.

Jaime considers herself a "total foodie" and strongly believes in supporting local businesses. She's an advocate for the Alzheimer's Association, a reluctant exerciser and a positive thinker. Jaime loves spending time with friends and family and any patio with a view of Camelback Mountain. Mostly, she loves being back home sweet home in the Valley of the Sun.
