Las Vegas Edition: Now That's A Pizza Pie!

Wolfgang Puck's Postrio at The Shoppes at The Venetian
We wanted to end our Las Vegas trip on a high note with a scenic lunch at The Shoppes at The Venetian. The square features several Italian restaurants that feature "outdoor" seating. After browsing the various menus, we decided to try famous chef Wolfgang Puck's Postrio Restaurant.

We were seated in the courtyard with a nice people watching view and spot to catch the hourly opera shows.

We started out with a nice field green salad tossed with gorgonzola, pears, candied walnuts and a light balsamic dressing. I really enjoyed how the walnuts were not overly sweet and the salad was a refreshing start.

We both decided to get wood oven pizzas since we couldn't decide on one to split! The BF went with a pizza that featured salami toscana, spicy sopressata, pepperoni, and green chilies. He said it had the perfect meat-to-cheese ratio with just enough spice (even for him!).

I tried the pizza with spicy italian sausage, wild mushrooms, roasted red pepper and four types of cheeses. I was in heaven eating slice after slice. The wood fire oven provided the perfect crust that was crispy on the outside, and doughy on the inside. All the flavors were perfectly combined with the gooey cheeses and I couldn't get enough! The fresh basil on top balanced the strong flavors from the meat and cheeses as well.

Our lunch at Postrio was a perfect ending to a fantastic trip. It is not the cheapest of lunches, but if you are willing to splurge on a scenic view and even better food, it's definitely worth it. The portion sizes are huge, so I would recommend splitting entrees. I would love to go back on a future trip for dinner to try one of their homemade pasta dishes, but for now I'll settle for my memories of their amazing pizza crust! Postrio gets 4 stars for its location and hand-crafted pizzas with fresh, exotic ingredients.
