The pizzeria originally opened in January 2013 with Napoli pies cooked fast in a 900-degree oven. A second location opened in Henderson and Sgrizzi planned three more pizzerias in Las Vegas at the time. The Henderson spot closed in late 2015 on Eastern Avenue, replaced by Sushi Hiro.
Sgrizzi uses San Marzano tomatoes from Napoli, 00 Caputo flour, and fresh mozzarella from Campania, Italy, on his pies, cooked in a stone oven that burns almond wood at a temperature just over 900 degrees. Each pizza cooks in about 90 seconds. Pizzas are hand shaped into 11-inch pies.
Sgrizzi still has Chef Marc’s Trattoria in the Lakes neighborhood.
