Metro Pizza (Multiple Locations)
Survey after survey, Metro Pizza is repeatedly mentioned by multiple experts as one of their favorite Las Vegas pizza spots. That’s because, since long before Las Vegas’ current pizza renaissance, they’ve consistently offered multiple styles of truly exceptional pizza, at outposts throughout the valley.
Metro’s roots date to the East Coast in 1928. But even its Las Vegas presence brings a lot of history. Co-owners and cousins John Arena and Sam Facchini made the move west in 1980 and became beloved to Las Vegans, eventually expanding to five locations. Arena’s continued pizza education has been so extensive, he was asked to teach a college course in it.
The New York-born cousins, and their protégé Chris Decker (one of our Neon Feast experts), celebrate numerous styles of pies at their shops. So you’ll find thick, thin and ultra-thin pizzas here. Many are named for famous pizza-making centers, such as The Gotham (pepperoni, mushrooms, sausage, green peppers, ground beef and cheese), The Milano (white pizza with mozzarella, ricotta and garlic) and The Bleecker Street (Italian sausage and garlic), while the signature Metro has a thick crust and extra cheese. Appetizers, salads, subs and calzones also are served.

Try our Sicilian pizza, which brought home a Bronze Medal form the International Pizza Expo. The secret? Well, five days of cold fermentation on the dough creates a crust like nothing you’ve experienced before.
