I check out their website and see they have a special for a large cheese pizza for $5.99. Additional toppings are $1.75 each. I call to confirm and am informed that they always have this special, it’s just the price of pizza. I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand it’s an outstanding deal for a large pizza, while on the other hand I’m left wondering how good the pizza will be at Little Ceasars prices.
Jesse’s pizza is located in a large-ish shopping plaza at Horizon Ridge Pkwy and Stephanie St. The plaza is never too crowded– almost dead and Jesse’s sits in the middle. Interestingly, it’s in the same plaza as the Henderson Metro pizza. The storefront looks very generic, the lights of the “Jesse’s” part of their sign are out so the sign just says “Pizza”. Inside it’s very bare bones, this is strictly a takeout/delivery place, although there is a nice patio area right next to it for outdoor seating. I get a large cheese and large pepperoni pizza.
Opening the box the pizza doesn’t look bad and smells pretty good.

Take out a slice of cheese and it has a nice flop to it. Already it looks a lot better than Dominos or Little Ceasars. Biting into the cheese it has a good flavor. The crust is good and has a nice char to it and dusting from the oven.

The pizza is good not amazing. However, given the price to taste ratio this may be the best value for pizza in all of Las Vegas. Another place that has a good value is Uncle Joe’s pizza dowtown which is about $10 for a large pepperoni. The pizza is better at Uncle Joe’s but it’s also a bit more expensive and on the other side of town. Actually come to think of it Upper Crust pizza has large cheese also for $10 and it blows both Jesse’s and Uncle Joe’s out of the water. Still, at $5.99 Jesse’s is a hard bargain. Probably with Metro pizza practically right next to it they’re forced to differentiate themselves on price and it’s a smart move.
