Metro Pizza, 35 Years of Great Pizza in Las Vegas
Our friends at Metro Pizza, in Las Vegas are celebrating an anniversary…
They have been making pizza at Metro for over 35 years…
John and Sam, the owners have pizza in their blood. They grew up making pizza at the family run pizza business.
Here’s the story:
Thirty five years ago, two young men from New York saw an Ad in an Italian newspaper. The ad was for the sale of pizza place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
After much discussion, they packed their bags borrowed a car and headed to a new life in Las Vegas to start a pizza business.
Things were not easy, but both were determined and dedicated to make their pizzeria work.
They named the pizzeria, Metro in honor of their New York roots.
They struggled. They worked. They tried. And they made pizza…
And more pizza. And more pizza!
They held onto the dream… and expanded their pizza vision
Along the road, they influenced other would be pizzeria owners in their own pizza journey…
They freely share their love and knowledge of pizza to anyone who asks. They continue to make pizza, teach pizza share the spirit of pizza …
They are known simply as:
“The pizza guy and the other pizza guy!”
John and Sam, We thank you! We praise you… We salute you!
Here’s to Metro Pizza and to you both.
The pizza guy and the other pizza guy!
Keep on doing what you do….

From the Metro website, here is their philosophy:
We believe that a true Pizzeria should be a gathering place for family and friends to relax, share great food and enjoy each other’s company. We have visited hundreds of Pizzerias across the country, learning and gathering recipes to bring our guests a taste of home, wherever home might be.
Which city has the best pizza? At Metro Pizza we celebrate all of the great traditions of the pizza experience and we Thank You for choosing us as your neighborhood Pizzeria.
