Pizza Restaurant In Las Vegas Named Among Top In The Country
Some of the best pizza in Las Vegas is now some of the best pizza in the country.
There’s not really a cuisine you can’t find in Sin City, on or off the Strip. And now, one of our local pizza places landed on a list of top 50 pizzerias in the entire country. 50 Top Pizza just released its list of the 50 best pizzerias in the U.S. in 2023. And coming in at number 18 is Pizza Rock.
50 Top Pizza, a guide based out of Italy, said that Pizza Rock’s owner Tony Gemignani “conquered Las Vegas” with his pizza style (50TopPizza.it). Or styles, as it were. Gemignani’s menu offers Classic Italian Pizzas, Classic American, Roman and more. And fans love the maxi pizza, a huge pie meant to be shared by many people.
Pizza Rock has been in Las Vegas for ten years, when their first location opened in the downtown area. It was the brain child of three friends, one of which was Gemignani. With his 13-time world pizza champion expertise with him, Gemignani brought his gourmet pizzas to the first location in Sin City in 2013.
In 2015, Gemignani opened another Pizza Rock in Green Valley Ranch in Henderson. And now he also has two locations in Allegiant Stadium. Locals have said that what sets Pizza Rock apart has a lot to do with the ambiance of the restaurants. It’s not your casual pizza joint. It’s more of a nightlife vibe version of your favorite artisan pizzeria. In fact, they have DJs spinning music every Thursday through Sunday night.
Pizza Rock was the only pizza place in Las Vegas to be named on the 50 Top Pizza list. Another honor for Gemignani. New York dominated the list, taking four of the top ten spots, including number one. Jersey City, Portland, San Francisco and Phoenix also had locations that landed in the top five.
