Tony Gemignani, 11-time World Pizza Champion, brings his unique concept, Pizza Rock, to Las Vegas. Pizza Rock features gourmet pizzas in a variety of styles, hand-crafted artisan cocktails and an extensive imported beer and wine list; all served up in an artistic and energetic atmosphere.
The 185-seat restaurant offers a variety of Italian and American pizza styles, all cooked in one of the restaurant's four different ovens, including Neapolitan, Classic Italian, Classic American, Sicilian, Roman and gluten free.
Menu highlights include Gemignani's award-winning pizzas such as the Sicilian-style burratina di margherita (burrata cheese, cherry tomatoes tossed with basil, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic reduction), which won the Gold Cup Pizza Championships; Napoletana-style margherita (San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella fior de latte, basil, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt), which won the World Pizza Cup and Cal Italia (asiago, mozzarella, imported gorgonzola, sweet fig preserve, prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano-Reggiano and balsamic reduction), which won the Gold Medal in the Food Network Pizza Champions Challenge.
Additionally, a selection of pastas, calzones, stromboli, antipasti and salads are offered. All fresh pasta is made on-site, as will the Sicilian and Calabrese link and bulk sausages. Pizza Rock also offers an array of New York slices, calzones, paninis, grinders, meatball subs and house-made vanilla soft serve (with toppings from olive oil and sea salt and Fernet reduction to seasonal berries, hazelnut and Valrhona chocolate) that can be ordered and served from the sidewalk walk-up window.
Pizza Rock's full bar focuses on hand-crafted artisan cocktails, an extensive draft and bottled beer list and a collection of wines with a focus on California and Italy. An acoustic Sunday brunch features specialty breakfast pizzas but also a twist on classics like meatball hash and eggs, eggs Benedict with pancetta and French toast made with focaccia bread.
The restaurant features an impressive light and sound system with DJs Thursday through Saturday nights.
