You know the saying about sex and pizza. But have you heard the one about the mysterious “2 Eggs Gondola Pizza” ($6.99)? It may look like word soup, but it’s one of the specialties at Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizzeria.
- Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizzeria
- 1370 E. Flamingo Road., 733-9499.
- Daily, 10 a.m.-midnight.
The business started in 1974 and has grown into a franchise with many California locations, but there’s only one in Las Vegas. Shaping thin crust dough into what looks more like a fat canoe, the pizza artists sprinkle mozzarella, feta and butter inside. Then they crack two eggs on top, plus any toppings you desire ($.70 each) and bake until bubbling. With fresh tomato, red onion, Greek olives and pepperoncini, mine was a delightful mash of mostly intense flavors. The eggs come medium, but you can request well done or scrambled, and delivery is an option on orders of more than $10.
So what’s the saying? Breakfast is always better with cheese.
