Dining Pick of the Week: Custom Built Pizza



4165 S. Grand Canyon Drive, 473-9918

Larry DuLittle, owner and co-founder of Custom Built Pizza Co., describes his artisan pies as “made-to-order Neapolitan pizza cooked in an authentic Italian wood oven at 700 degrees with the customer selecting their sauce, cheese and toppings. It’s a whole new concept for Las Vegas.” Sauces include crushed tomato, spicy diavola, Alfredo and pistachio pesto. Among the cheeses are mozzarella, Gorgonzola and Asiago. Meat choices are meatballs, applewood bacon, roasted chicken, chorizo, Italian sausage, pepperoni and Black Forest ham. The list of veggies has artichoke hearts, jalapenos, roasted garlic, mushrooms, sweet onion, bell pepper and sliced tomatoes. Top it off with fresh basil or cilantro, pineapple, arugula, black olives or banana peppers. Specialty pies include Pizza Blanco, Pizza Roma with pistachio pesto sauce, roasted onions, peppers and artichokes, and the 1889 Pizza Margherita with mozzarella di bufala imported from Italy. Create your own Custom Built salad as you would a pizza. Pizzas start at $8.95. Custom Built Pizza is open from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. – Jack Bulavsky

Movie posters might soon be based on your clicks

You may have thought you left Blockbuster behind, but the basic way we browse movies hasn’t changed all that much.
