Traditional wood-fired pizza oven in a blog article on our website at Granite 550 in Casper, Wyoming



We’re lucky to live in a city with so many high-caliber pizzerias. With numerous inventive menus and tasty offerings out there, it’s hard to know which ones to try. Granite 550 is here to help with our recommendations for three must-try pies (plus three runners-up).

“Hell’s Kitchen” at Racca’s Pizzeria Napoletana

With so many amazing Neapolitan-style pizzas on Racca's menu, it’s hard to choose just one. We settled on the Hell’s Kitchen, a devilish mix of mozzarella, San Marzano tomato sauce, pecorino Romano, spicy salami, hot dry cured coppa, and fresh basil. This pizza joint takes the authenticity of its Neapolitan pizza seriously – owner Mark Dym and his team run the only certified Neapolitan pizzeria in Wyoming. Order online straight from their website.

Racca’s runner-up: The Butcher, featuring fresh mozzarella, San Marzano tomato sauce, prosciutto di Parma, sweet Italian sausage, prosciutto cotto, and spicy Calabrian salami.

“The Chief” at Firehouse Pizza Wood Fire’d

If you’re a fan of wood-fired pizza, Firehouse delivers with some innovative specialty pies. We recommend The Chief – a top seller topped with Firehouse’s hot honey. Yes, honey! Trust us. It works. The Chief also features red sauce, whole-milk mozzarella, pecorino Romano, world-famous ricotta, aged soppressata, pepperoni, and fresh organic basil. Taste for yourself why Firehouse devotees love this unique pie. You can order online right from their website.

Firehouse’s runner-up: Pizza Frequency, featuring vodka sauce(!!), fresh mozzarella, bacon, mushrooms, onions, and finished with prosciutto.

“Aztec“ at Ludovico Farm to Wood Flame

Featuring seven styles of pizza from around the world, Ludovico’s menu offers some creative wood-fired pies. The Aztec, with creme, roasted corn, seasoning, pecan-smoked bacon, and fresh dill, is a unique specialty and house favorite you’ll want to try. This unlikely mix of ingredients pack quite the punch in the taste department.

Ludovico’s runner-up: The Russian Roulette Detroit Pizza, which features Detroit-style crust, brick cheese, pecan bacon, bacon, vodka cream, jalapenos, and spicy extra-virgin olive oil.
