There’s plenty of great pizza in Las Vegas, lots of different styles to sample. But only recently has a restaurant arrived that claims to make Vegas-style pizza—the four-month-old High Roller Pizza just south of the Strip.
So exactly what does Vegas-style pizza taste like? High Roller’s dough is quite distinctive, with a flavor that reminds me of homemade pizza and the ability to crisp into a light, almost flaky, kinda biscuity texture. The house marinara sauce also has that homey taste, a thick mélange of roasted tomatoes and spices.
High Roller’s namesake pie ($15.99 for 8-inch, $25.99 for 14-inch, $30.99 for 16-inch) piles on mozzarella, small discs of crispy pepperoni, sausage, bacon, ham, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, banana peppers, mushrooms and black olives. Another compelling flavor combo is the BBQ Pit Boss ($10.99, $22.99, $26.99), stacked with pulled pork, onions, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses and a house-made barbecue sauce, with a side of spicy coleslaw.
I don’t know if I’m ready to make High Roller our city’s official pizza, but it’s definitely worth a taste. Maybe we should have a vote?
High Roller Pizza 8174 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 702-960-7788. Daily, 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
