Celebrating the recent opening of Las Vegas’ newest resort and casino, SLS Las Vegas, world renowned chef José Andrés took to the kitchens of 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, temporarily trading in his chef’s coat for a pizzaiolo paddle.

The resulting pie was truly chef-caliber: a Bianco base (mozzarella, parmesan, garlic, oregano, olive oil, no sauce), topped with fresh burrata, caviar and basil. It was so good, 800 Degrees Chef Anthony Carron added it to the menu to christen the new location.

‘Lo Spagnolo’ (Italian for the Spaniard) will be running on special, while supplies last, only at 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza at SLS Las Vegas. The price is $50.

800 Degrees honors Old World tradition with an ingredient-focused menu of Neapolitan pizzas where guests can customize their own pie with more than 40 different fresh toppings. Pizzas are made fresh to order and baked in just 60 to 90 seconds in the restaurant’s 800-degree wood-burning ovens.
