    Looking for suggestions for good pizza NOT in casino, a good non chain local place. I know pizza opinions are very subjective but we like thin crust FWIW. :)

    Great question!

    Second question and most important - where is most NV / LV pizza influenced from? NY Style? Chicago style? Like Buffalo and kinda a cross between the 2?

    Sauce sweet (Sicilian) or salty (mainland) or neither (not Italian) ?

    Pizza is to be taken very seriously.

    I like a variety of sauces/toppings. But the crust needs to be thin, I don't like the thick and chewy crusts.

    I know there are several pizza places in casinos that are highly rated but we're staying off strip and I don't want to head to the strip or downtown for good pizza.

    This thread will go off the rails. I put the over/under at post #32. Pizza is one of those evergreen train wrecks around here! lol

    Very true and I know there have been previous pizza threads but figured I would start a new one since I only am interested in non casino joints :)

    Someone throw down about $600-800 in materials - point me in the direction of the closest Home Depot or Lowes and Masonry shop. I'll need a grinder, a shovel, a wheel barrel, access to fresh cold water, mortar trowel and some Makers on the rocks.

    I'll build a brick pizza oven in 4 days while I'm there - and then we'll make my pizza and see who has the best pizza in LV hahahah.

    I have been making Amore Taste of Chicago on Durango a regular stop on our last several trips to Vegas. They make a great Chicago Thin Crust Pizza.

    Amore long has been (was) a good spot. We've not been in eons, but in our Vegas heyday we were there a lot.

    Bambino's on the corner of Sahara and Durango. It's next to the Subway on Durango. Real New Yorkers, this is a family operation that makes the best pizza in Vegas.

    Grimaldi is good I think. But I think it's a chain? Same with Pizza Rock and I love their pizza. My expectations must not be as high as others though. I enjoy Secret pizza too. Gotta have pepperoni and hot peppers and I'm happy. Of course those are almost all in casinos. Lol My friends live in LV and I could ask them for a local place with great pizza.

    Metro Pizza on Tropicana and Maryland has excellent pizza and has 1/2 price weekdays from 2:30 until 4:30. They also have a location on Flamingo at Durango. Haven't tried the other places but we will.

    Pizza rock has all the styles. Pizza to me is like bbq... depending on the hour.... good or better or best. I'm old school so no chicken.

    Naked City Pizza is pretty good, we l liked it. Crust was thin, but not cracker thin.

    Have heard good things about Sammy's Woodfired Pizza also but haven't tried it personally.

    Good luck in your quest!

    In March I went to a place called Novecento that makes the whole pizza in front of you and then puts it in the oven for 90 seconds. Not super thin crust, but pretty thin. It was delicious. It's up off the 95 at Ann Road.
