There’s nothing quite like the perfect pizza, but what makes the best pizza is a matter of opinion. So, we asked Las Vegas residents where they go when they want delicious pizza. We think you’ll have a marvelous time exploring these pizza restaurants in search of your perfect pizza!
Before you go running off on your pizza adventure, let’s take a look at the different types of pizzas.
The Neapolitan Pizza is often considered the original pizza that was brought to this country by Italian immigrants. The dough is made with a special wheat flour that makes the crust crunchy and thin. Unlike many other pizzas, this pizza doesn’t pile on the toppings. The addition of minimal toppings is done to keep the crust crisp. Typical toppings include tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and basil.
Chicago Deep Dish Pizza is thick with toppings and has a medium crust thickness. This pizza requires additional cooking time because of the thickness. The fun things about this pizza is that the cheese is usually placed on the bottom and the other toppings added on top of the cheese. The sauce is placed on the top layer. This is one pizza you might want to grab a knife and fork to eat.
Sicilian Pizza is normally made in a rectangular shape. The crust is thick, and the pizza is a great choice for a crowd because it’s often large. It’s popular to top a Sicilian pizza with a stronger cheese than one would normally see on a pizza. Alternately, some Sicilian pizzas are topped without the use of cheese.
California Style Pizza is known for the out of the ordinary toppings. If you’re interested in toppings that include things like pate, duck, BBQ chicken, broccoli, or salmon… this is the pizza for you! Dessert and breakfast pizzas are considered California styled.
New York Style Pizza is made to be folded in half, which makes it easier to eat for people on the go. Because it’s made to be folded, the toppings aren’t piled on like some pizzas. The crust is typically thin and crisp.
While there are several other pizza types, they are variations of one of the above styled pizzas with a change in toppings or crust design.
