When it comes to the best pizza cities, Las Vegas could be considered a sleeper pick. It has world-class chefs and access to top-tier ingredients so it’s no wonder that great pizza continues to pop up all over the city.
There are some great places to get a slice on the strip, but today we’re focusing on some spots that are easy to get to and, for the most part, more affordable. That’s all while maintaining the quality that pizza-lovers appreciate.
While it’s hard to boil down the best spots, we’ve chosen five across town that provide very different offerings, albeit delicious ones.
#1: Terra Rossa at Red Rock Casino
Terra Rossa came back to the Summerlin dining scene in 2019 and the Italian favorite has been a hit since its return.
Pizzas play a crucial role in Terra Rossa’s recently revamped menu lineup. To take advantage of all Terra Rossa has to offer, we recommend ordering a pizza as an appetizer or an extra alongside some of their other offerings.
When it comes to Italian, the less complicated, the better. So try out a margherita pizza with fresh maromato, mozzarella di bufala, and basil. For something slightly different, their “verde” offering is a delicious combination of Italian greens, garlic oil, burrata, chili flakes.
#2: Shakin’ It at Sunset Station
Blink and you might miss this brand new offering at Sunset Station. Sharing a space with Wingin’ It, Sunset’s quick stop for wings, Shakin’ It works as a choose-your-own-adventure meal.
Simply fill the ingredients of your choice up into a cup and Shakin’ It cooks you perfect pizza for you.
Shakin’ It also has a few ready-to-order specialty pizzas for your enjoyment and has to-go boxes so you have dinner taken care of on your way out of the casino.
#3: Pizza Rock at Green Valley Ranch
Frequently recommended as one of the best pizza spots in Vegas, the award-winning Pizza Rock gets plenty of attention, and for good reason.
The place is rocking on weekends due to their fun atmosphere, countless craft beer taps, and the quality of the pizza.
What do we recommend? That’s easy: the New Yorker. It’s a massive pie with sliced mozzarella, tomato sauce, house-made fennel sausage, pepperoni, garlic, oregano, romano, and ricotta.
But don’t take our word for it: that pizza was the winner of ‘Best Traditional Pizza in the World’ at the Las Vegas Pizza Expo.
#4 Little Tony’s at Palace Station
A little-known fact about Little Tony’s inside Palace Station: the creator is also the mastermind behind Pizza Rock. And Tony Gemignani knows his pizza.
This spot is a bit quieter and more casual than the previously-mentioned Pizza Rock, but it doesn’t slouch on the pizza. Guests can order a specialty pie, create their own, or grab a slice to go (hours vary).
#5 Side Piece at Palms
Part of a$690 million renovation at Palms Casino Resort, Side Piece is the go-to fast-casual spot for traditional hand-tossed New York City pizzas.
Of course, pizza, cravings are as unpredictable as a night out in Vegas, so their late-night hours make it easy to grab a slice after a late night on the town.
Having a pizzaiolo background, Side Pieces’ Chef Enzo showcases his pizza craftsmanship and Italian roots with a big city-certified and straightforward menu.
Whether guests are looking to enjoy pizza by the slice or as whole pies, Side Piece is the go-to spot for pizza in a New York minute.
And weekend warriors can rejoice! Side Piece is currently offering a $10 whole pizza on Sundays exclusively through Grubhub delivery.
