This blog has had a lot of pizza. We’ve had it in just about every major U.S. city, and in pizza joints around the world. And we can say, without a doubt, Martorano’s restaurant at Rio Las Vegas is currently serving up one of the best pizzas on the planet.
The restaurant’s Thin Crust Pizza ($18) hasn’t been on the menu for about a year, but we’re happy it’s on there now! Get the full menu here (.pdf format).
Each component of the pizza is made in the restaurant, from the dough to the sauce to the mozzarella cheese.
How many restaurants make their own mozzarella? We don’t know. That was a rhetorical question. All we know is that Martorano’s does.
The pizza goes into the oven, bippity-boom (the technical culinary term), and when it comes out, it’s topped off with Pecorino Romano and Parmigiano Reggiano, two cheeses we would not have known how to spell were it not for the assistance of the Internet.
We think you’ll agree it’s like this pizza is making moves on your taste buds. Bottom line: World-class deliciousness!
Also new on the menu, the homemade meatball with hot and sweet peppers. We didn’t actually try it, because of the whole “hot peppers” thing, but other people seem to like it.
Honestly, we could just keep posting photos of the food at Martorano’s all day.
But it’s probably best if you try it for yourself.
And please let us know if you don’t think the pizza is one of the world’s best. We will ignore what you say, but feel free to tell us, anyway.
