Las Vegas offers a vast array of high-end cuisine and culinary delights, but sometimes all you want is a slice of pizza.
Sin City is known as a place for culinary indulgence: celebrity chefs, buffets, seven-course tasting menus. But sometimes, all you want is a pizza. Whether you want a whole pie with everything or just a quick slice, here are Las Vegas‘ best pizzerias.

The cartoonish mural featuring the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building and the lights of Times Square give you the first hint of Broadway Pizzeria‘s New York cred. The proof, however, is in the pie and they’ve been putting out old-school-style pies for over two decades. There are two kinds of white pie, a host of specialty pizzas and a full menu of Italian specialties and hero sandwiches. Also, the pepperoni-stuffed garlic knots are killer.
Yes, that’s Evel as in Knievel, the guy who tried to jump the fountains at Caesars Palace on his red-white-and-blue motorcycle. Evel Pie takes its theme seriously, from the Evel pinball machine and Evel action figures, to Evel Ale beer and rattlesnake sausage pie. Check out the action figures and other memorabilia, dig the classic rock soundtrack and get yourself a slice and a beer.
Master pizza maker and New York native Vincent Rotolo serves his pizza “grandma style” at Good Pie. Pizzas can be had in round or square shapes, Detroit or Brooklyn style, by the slice or by the pie, and there are even vegan and gluten-free options. The Johnny Be Good pie with caramelized onions, sausage and mushrooms is a standout, but you can’t go wrong here.
With several locations around Las VegasNaked City Pizza Shop has no doubt satisfied many pizza cravings. The first spot was opened in 2010 by chef Chris Palmeri, but the one attached to Moon Doggie‘s bar has become the mainstay. There is a wide array of pizzas, from bacon and eggs to the “Guinea Pie,” as well as Buffalo, NY standards like chicken wings and “beef on weck” sandwiches.
Headed by pizza maven Tony Gemignani, Pizza Rock serves almost two dozen types of classic and creative pies, from straight-up pepperoni to quail egg with chorizo and goat cheese. There is also an extensive menu of craft beer and cocktails. A limited number of Margherita and Sausage & Stout pizzas are made each day—grab one if you can.
More commonly known as “Secret Pizza,” this semi-hidden pizza spot gets crazy crowded after concerts and club nights. Record sleeve-adorned walls and a pinball machine keep the nightlife vibe going, with a range of New York-style pies for fuel. To find it, go to the third floor and look for the narrow hallway to the right of Jaleo.
