After years of mediocrity, Las Vegas has turned into a respectable pizza town, with places such as Dom DeMarco’s, Grimaldi’s and our Best of the City runner-up, Secret Pizza at the Cosmopolitan, which makes the best—and most reasonably priced—Strip slice. But the winner and still champion is Settebello, which opened in Henderson in 2005 and now has several national locations. Brad Otton, the man who started the chain, did an LDS mission to Naples, Italy, and came back with a passion for tomato pie. This is a chewy, black-bottomed pizza best torn apart by hand, with toppings such as sopressata (a delicious Italian cold cut), pine nuts, artichoke hearts and other exotica. The thin crust, light marinara and whole-milk mozzarella still show the competition how pizza should be made.
