I love pizza. I’m very picky about my pizza, but it’s been one of my favorite meals for as long as I can remember. If you’re in Las Vegas, and looking for a place to get a slice of pie (or a whole one), check out some of these spots around the city:
Pizza Rock is a fun place to go with friends, on a date, or out with the family. With multiple locations throughout the city, including one in downtown Las Vegas, it’s a convenient spot to go try no matter where you are. This particular pizzeria sets artisan pizza against a backdrop of fun, nightlife energy that thrives in a city like Las Vegas. Start your night with Italian fries or the woodfired asparagus, before moving on to one of the famous in-house pies, like the Papa Gino, the Butcher, or their take on the classic Margherita. Pair your pizza with one of their famous cocktails, like the Fitzgerald Martini or the Coconut Cooler.
Pizza Rock also has gluten free and vegetarian options available.
Pin-Up Pizza is located inside the Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops. It’s open late, so it’s a perfect place to visit after a late-night show or a night of clubbing. With ingredients flown in directly from Italy, Pin Up Pizza promises an eating experience you won’t find anywhere else in the city. This cute little spot only offers pizza by the slice, but one slice is big enough for two people.
If you’re a fan of the “Build Your Own” option at restaurants, try Grimaldi’s. This New-York style eatery has multiple locations throughout the city, including one inside the Fashion Show and one in the Palazzo, it’s a great place to go if you’re staying on the Strip. You can choose the size, the sauce, and the toppings for your pie, or you can pick from one of the house creations, like the White Pizza with Garlic or “The Don”.
If you’re looking for something familiar, try Metro Pizza. With kid-friendly menus, large booths and family-size entrees, Metro Pizza is a good option if you’re going out with family or traveling in large groups. The Nuclear Fries are perhaps my favorite thing on the menu, second to the South Side pie. If you’re looking to try something different, check out the Milano on the Specialty menu, or the Old New York.
The Pizzeria, also known as Secret Pizza, is inside the Cosmopolitan. Located next to the Blue Ribbon Restaurant on the third floor, this is a “grab and go” kind of joint. The prices are what you’d expect for Vegas, but it’s a great place to go if you’re leaving the club and need something (sort of) cheap to soak up the alcohol.
