Status: Certified Open
Wicked Pizza takes a page from the Naked City Pizza playbook, opening inside another restaurant. Step inside the heavy metal Underworld Bar & Grill to find this window for pizza and burgers.
Owners David and Alicia Ivy, who do the Pub Crawl review show on the Vegas Video Network, fly in dough from Boston to make their pizzas. Look for East Coast-style pizzas made with homemade tomato sauce. The Dantes Inferno features an extra spicy tomato sauce, hot Italian sausage, jalapeños and crushed red peppers while the Angry Tiki comes with that same spicy sauce, ham, pineapple, island spices and Sriracha. Note that the pizzas take 30 minutes to cook.
On the burger side of the menu, try the Wicked Burger or the over-the-top Texas Cheesesaw Massacre topped with mozzarella cheese, blue cheese dressing and Texas barbecue sauce, all served on two grilled cheese sandwiches for the bun. The menu also includes sliders, served in pairs, such as the PBB&J with peanut butter, bacon and an apricot-pineapple jelly, a BBQ Ranch and crispy grilled cheese.
The restaurant within a restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 a.m.
