Las Vegans have long known that Metro Pizza offers some of the best pizza in the city but according to the editors of Food Network Magazine the local chain is also the best pizza in the state.
The Mulberry Street is the best pie according to the magazine. The pizza features breaded eggplant and ricotta cheese. The editors spent six months trying to find the best pies around the country from the basics like sausage and cheese to more elaborate concoctions like the Wild Nettle and Pecorino Pizza in California. All that mattered was that the pizza was delicious. The entire list is available in the magazine's September issue which goes on sale August 9.
Many restaurants have suffered in our economy but Metro Pizza has done well, in July it started work on its eighth restaurant in the valley's northwest side. That new location is expected to open next year.
