The Making of an Award-Winning Pizza
What makes their pizza so amazing? It could be there pizza sauce, which is made from a secret recipe. It could be their handmade mozzarella cheese, their fresh ingredients, or their handmade dough.
Their attention to detail when it comes to creating the best pizza experience for their customers goes beyond that of most restaurants.
The perfect example of that dedication is in the water they use to make their pizzas. To make sure that you get the same pizza experience no matter which of their pizzerias you visit, they hired a special chemist to analyze the water used to make their Brooklyn pizzas.
Once they knew what made that water so unique, they were able to recreate it exactly for use in their pizzerias across the country.
The environment at Grimaldi’s is upscale, but it maintains as casual feel that makes it a comfortable place for gatherings with friends and family. This friendly atmosphere is just one more reason that people choose Grimaldi’s as their top pizza choice in Las Vegas.
