Blackjack Pizza is a pizzeria in Las Vegas, Nevada, that specializes in blackjack pizza. The pizzeria was founded by Nicholas Pappas and his wife, Christina Pappas, in 2009.
The pizzeria is located in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
The idea for Blackjack Pizza originated from Nicholas Pappas’s love of playing blackjack. He and his wife decided to open a pizzeria that would specialize in the game.
The pizzeria has two main dining areas: the casino area, which features a large blackjack table; and the restaurant area, which has a small blackjack table and several other games playable by guests.
The Pappas’s have been credited with popularizing blackjack pizza in Las Vegas. Prior to their establishment, blackjack pizza was mostly found only in casinos and restaurants in western states such as Nevada, Arizona, and California.
Since opening Blackjack Pizza, the Pappas’s have been credited with bringing the game to mainstream restaurants throughout Las Vegas.
