When you need the very best pizza that Las Vegas has to offer you will find some gems on the Las Vegas strip but you might need to venture just a tiny bit from the bright lights if you want to be blown away by a great pie. Metro Pizza is just a few minutes from the strip but what they do with their pizza and their passion for the craft of pizza making will make the diversion worth it. If you are in Downtown Las Vegas try Evel Pie and not only will you get a great dive bar experience you will also get a high quality slice of pizza making love. Both of these spots deliver a quality product however, if you want to stay on the strip, that is understandable. The pizza joints below will deliver a pretty good product.
Before you rant about how my selections are way off, understand that I eat a lot, way too much, and I probably drink far more than most people, so take a seat and consider my selections. After you do that, realize that I'm opinionated, I can be a blow hard and the truth is I... have no allegiance to anyone, if you suggest a better a pizza I'll probably go and try that as well. These are my best pizzas and I think you'll like them, but I'm pretty sure that you'll have a list of your own after your Las Vegas vacation. Send it to me and I'll crumble like a stale cracker.
Can you live on pizza alone? Well, I guess you could because I could but you should also check out the best affordable restaurants in Las Vegas as well as the must do restaurants in Las Vegas. Frankly, with so much good food available on the Las Vegas strip you don't want to miss out. Blow up the diet and eat!
01 of 09The pizza should make you excited but it's the small plates that will take you over the top. Shawn McClain of Sage brings his idea of pizza to Las Vegas and then tempts us with plenty of outstanding options to have along with our pie. The pizza is a combination of VPN style and New York pizza combined with just a bit more crust and all baked at 550 degrees. Great ingredients contribute to pretty impressive flavors. The beer list is noteworthy and the bar area will tempt you to stick around longer. They also have a pizza counter that should feed your late night cravings.
02 of 09Slice of Vegas is doing a decent job of delivering a good pie to the table but I'm more impressed with the pastas. However, it is on this list because my children are sold on the pizza, my wife is sold on the salads and the beer list is impressive. Toss in a take out counter and plenty of good desserts and you'll find yourself here having an affordable family meal.

It's cheap, it's in a nice hotel and it doesn't feel like you are going out of your way to spend less money. Instead, it is as if you are one of the cool kids who just happened to know where to go for a slice. Bring a date and you'll feel like the insider who know Las Vegas better than the rest. If I'm you, I get it to go and head to the pool deck where you can lounge with a view of Las Vegas.

For the money there is no better pizza in Las Vegas. It is the best cheap meal on the Las Vegas strip right now and it happens to be very good. You might find a better pizza but you will not find it at a better price. Simply speaking, some of the other pizzas on this list will taste better because they use better ingredients, however, the difference is not worth double the cost if you are on a tight food budget in Las Vegas. Now open at SLS Las Vegas
06 of 09I really do love the pizza here but I love so much more that I often don't mention the pizza. The wine list is enough for me to get excited about and an afternoon of pasta and a an overflowing glass of red is enough for me to get excited. However, Mario Batali does know a thing or two about pizza and he does a very good job of delivering a pie with some good char and a zesty sauce that will make you eat the entire thing and realize just how selfish you can really be.
07 of 09Wolfgang Puck practically invented the idea of having a pizza that costs a little more and tastes a little better than the cardboard thing that is usually delivered to your front door. I should preface that with a statement that explains the gourmet pizza on the West Coast before every East Coast reader sends me the hate mail about the place on Steinway off the R train or the little place that has been making pies since the 50's in their neighborhood. Wolfgang Puck made it okay to have a nice tablecloth, a decent wine list and a pizza while in a classy place. Spago is still that place and if you have an afternoon on your Las Vegas vacation you might as well treat yourself to great people watching and a pizza at Spago.

Pizza at La Cave at Wynn Las VegasYou'll be heading to La Cave because they have some decent flatbread but if you are having it on the patio with a few friends and some wine it is an alternative to some stuffy meal elsewhere on the property. The place is casual yet slightly upscale and it is open late. If you are gearing up for a night at XS or Tryst you'll find that La Cave will help in getting the party started.Continue to 9 of 9 below.
