Cheese. Carbs. Meat. What’s not to love about pizza? It’s no surprise that it’s one of the world’s most popular foods. Even a bad pizza is still pretty darn good.

Pizza fans tend to be loyal to a specific type of pizza and no matter what you’re looking for, we have it in Vegas. Whether you want Chicago-style, New York-style or just a pie with unusual toppings, you can find it here.

Here’s a list of five places where you’ll be happy you grabbed a slice on the Strip:

Giordano’s at Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s Las Vegas

If you’re from Chicago, you know Giordano’s. It has been a favorite in the Windy City since 1974 and is famous for stuffed deep dish pizza.

If Chicago-style is your thing then you definitely want to try a slice here. The deep dish pizza has a flaky crust, delicious fillings and Wisconsin mozzarella cheese that’s made especially for the restaurant. You can enjoy the pizza with just cheese, lots of meat or veggies. We love the Chicago Classic with pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers and onions.

If deep dish isn’t for you, Giordano’s also serves thin crust pizzas. Try the bacon barbecue chicken, chicken sausage deluxe or the super veggie.

We also love the crispy extra thin crust, which is almost like a cracker. Our favorite is the spinach, artichoke and feta.

Pin-Up Pizza at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

If size matters to you, look no further than Pin-Up Pizza. They boast the largest slices on the Strip. Each pie measures 30 inches across and uses 4 pounds of dough, which means each slice of pizza is a staggering 15 inches long by 6 inches wide. If that sounds daunting, don’t worry. You can ask to have the slice cut in half.

Pin-Up Pizza serves New York-style hand-tossed pizza and as the name suggests, the wait staff is dressed in rockabilly, pin-up style uniforms inspired by women like Bettie Page and Jayne Mansfield.

You can carry out or dine in on several varieties of pie: cheese, sausage, pepperoni, big meat, margherita and chicken with spinach.

The chefs here make dough flown in from Naples with low-gluten flour and a seven-year sourdough starter that gives the crust a little something extra.

GIADA at The Cromwell

Emmy Award-winning celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis knows a thing or two about making great Italian food so you know her pizza’s got to be good.

For lunch you can grab a variety of pizza like spinach and buffalo ricotta with roasted garlic purée and porchetta; margherita with herb roasted Campari tomatoes, basil and mozzarella; salumi piccante with spicy dry sausage, San Marzano tomato sauce, mozzarella and oregano or carbonara with cripsy pancetta, sunny side up egg, fontina and gruyère.

For dinner you can order appetizer pizzettes (basically mini pizzas). Try the spicy sausage or the pea and prosciutto.

Flour & Barley at The LINQ Promenade

Brick oven pizza fans will want to try Flour & Barley. The pies here are made with fresh whole milk mozzarella, San Marzano tomato sauce and house-made toppings.

The pizzas are unique so if you like to experiment with unusual toppings, this is the place to do it. Try the butternut squash with mozzarella, butternut squash, caramelized onions, spinach and goat cheese or the spicy shrimp with roasted tomatoes, shrimp, cherry peppers, caramelized onions and chili oil.

We also recommend the bacon blue with smoked bacon, gorgonzola cheese, potato and grilled onions.

There’s no better combo than pizza and a cold beer, so pair your slice with a refreshing, cold craft brew.

DiFara Pizza at Forum Food Court at Caesars Palace

New Yorkers happily stand in line to get slices of legendary DiFara Pizza in Brooklyn. Now you can get that East Coast Italian taste here in Vegas at the Forum Food Court.

Dominick DeMarco and his family have operated the Brooklyn location since 1964 and his restaurant in Vegas uses the same recipe as the New York original. There’s even a custom water filtration system to closely match the mineral content of the Brooklyn water.

The pizzas are made with imported ingredients like Italian buffalo mozzarella, Grana Padano Parmigiano cheese, fresh-cut basil imported from Israel, and sauce made with imported Italian tomatoes.

Choose from pepperoni, cheese, meat lovers, mushroom and Bianca.
