Pop Up Pizza at the Plaza Hotel & Casino has rolled out its refreshed menu in resurgent Downtown Las Vegas inspired by a brand new Brooklyn- influenced mural by local mixed media artist SNIPT.
Pop Up Pizza at the Plaza Hotel & Casino opened six years ago as the first gourmet pizzeria in downtown Las Vegas. The new mural unifies nostalgia with a hip-hop vibe, according to the artist.
Handmade pizzas using the highest quality ingredients, many from artisanal vendors, including California tomatoes, pepperoni from the famous Ezzo Sausage Company of Cleveland, Ohio, and mozzarella directly from Brooklyn, New York, highlight Pop Up Pizza’s new menu. All of the pizza dough is made fresh and cold rises for three days before baking.
The venue continues to offer its popular Vegan pie with roasted artichokes, red bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach and Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese.
The mural, entitled “The New Style,” is the creation of Derek Douglas, professionally known as SNIPT, a Las Vegas based artist who has become best known for creating mixed media Pop Art mashups. The mural’s title references one of the artist’s favorite tracks from the Beastie Boys’ “Licensed To Ill” album.
