A Guided Tour of Best Pizzerias
Tuesday, March 28
5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Join pizza expert Scott Wiener as he takes you to three outstanding Las Vegas pizzerias. You’ll sample the food, take in the customer experience, tour the kitchens and meet the owners for questions and answers. Internationally know for Scott’s Pizza Tours in New York City, Scott Wiener has gained an encyclopedic knowledge of the industry. He has selected Pizza Rock (hosted by co-owner Tony Gemignani), Metro Pizza (hosted by co-owner John Arena) and 800 Degrees (hosted by 800 Degrees founder Anthony Carron) for the tour on Tuesday evening at Pizza Expo.
A bus departing from the Las Vegas Convention Center will transport tour-goers to the three pizzerias, with Scott leading a seminar-on-wheels between destinations. All tour participants will receive a copy of Scott’s Pocket Pizza Journal.
Pizza Rock is best known for the multitude of styles on its menu — as many as 10 at one time — everything from California to New York, including Detroit and Chicago pan pizzas, plus Neapolitan, Romana and Sicilian pies from Italy. With six locations, Metro Pizza is a Best of Las Vegas winner where dough is made fresh daily and fresh-ingredient pizzas are baked in hearth ovens. The Los Angeles-based 800 Degrees fast-casual concept — with locations in California and Nevada as well as Japan and Dubai — features a pizza maker hand-tossing dough balls and high-end ingredients chosen at a counter by the customer. The tour will visit the location at the SLS Las Vegas hotel and casino.
