Onward with the pizza! Again, if you don’t know what’s going on … read here to get caught up!
Next up on The Great Neapolitan Pizza Quest …
Settebello Las Vegas
Having just eaten at Settebello in Salt Lake City, we were excited to see how these two locations may differ. Settebello in Las Vegas is located in the District in Henderson at 140 Green Valley Pkwy.
Once again, we sat as close to the oven as we could!
We arrived at pretty much the prime of dinner service, the beautiful pizza oven was roaring, and our pies cooked in approximately 58 seconds. And just as every other pizzeria on our quest, we ordered two very classic Neapolitan pies; the Marinara and Margherita.
Margherita, DOC version (above): “Crushed Tomatoes, Bufala Mozzarella, Basil, Parmigiano Oregano, Extra Virgin Olive Oil"
Marinara (below): “Crushed Tomatoes, Garlic, Oregano, Extra Virgin Olive Oil”
I just have to stop here and say … Settebello Las Vegas has been our absolute favorite pizza so far … we absolutely loved every bite of it!
The Quick Stats
Cook time: Approximately 58 seconds.
Dough: Appears to be made from 100% Caputo blue. Shon (the sous chef, who studied under Pepe Miele, VPN president) commented that they don’t go by an exact hydration ratio but more by touch. (Side note, he also said he’s working on a wood fired pizza food truck so if you’re in the Vegas area … be excited! I know I’m excited for it, and I don’t even live there). Dough rose very nicely, crust very light and airy.
Taste: This was the best pizza we’ve had so far! The cheese was extremely fresh and flavorful. Every component, from sauce down to olive oil was executed perfectly making for a wonderful pie.
We love you, Settebello Las Vegas!
