Sure, Sin City's not the first city that comes to mind when you think of pizza, but with the recent explosion of sweet 'za spots, it should probably be... the fifth! Or even possibly fourth! To help make sure you're eating the absolute best pie in this fifth-or-even-possibly-fourth-city-that-comes-to-mind-when-you-think-of-pizza, we picked seven slice-slingers you should totally patronize the hell out of. They're below:
That's not Vegas's best pizza. This is Vegas's best pizza.
Tucked away inside the Plaza Hotel & Casino, Pop Up Pizza is serving up a bevy of speciality za's, like the The Newport, which's got artichoke, ricotta, peppers, eggplant, and mushrooms drizzled in a garlic-infused olive oil.
They like to call themselves "THE destination pizzeria in Vegas", but we prefer to think of them as the place where gourmet za's, speciality cocktails, plus a shton of delicious desserts meet. So. They might have a point there.
The Cosmopolitan features dual 50-story spires, a 100,000sqft casino, and ~3,000 rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows (including suites with Sub Zeros, a washer/dryer, and massive wraparound terraces). And because you're just plain sick of staying in rooms that don't have their own private jacuzzi, give one of their five Premium Suites a try...
Having made NY's #1-rated pie for four decades, Dom is bringing his expertise (and, somewhat more surprisingly, New York's water) to Vegas, importing all of his non-aqua ingredients from Italy and making two styles of 'za: NY thin crust, and thick, cast-iron-cooked, square-cut Sicilian, with options including the Big Apple (pepperoni, sausage, meatball, ham), and the Di Fara, covered in handcut 'roni, fresh & aged mozz, Grana Padano, and basil.
With a dozen TVs (incl. an 8ft projection), an iPhone-controlled jukebox, and 50-plus beers from PBR to Big Sky Moose Drool, Slice revolves around NY-style 'za like a four-cheese number drizzled w/ white truffle oil, and perhaps the only pie more meat-filled than your mom's: a veal/beef/pork Bolognese joint topped with pepperoni, pancetta, sausage, bacon, mortadella, and capicola. Dude, remember that time we insinuated your mom has lots of sex?!
