For one night, The Strip will be home to two meat-free concepts. On Friday, June 25, Pizza 108 is popping up inside ARIA Resort & Casino at Moneyline Pizza & Bar from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.
The occasion marks the first time an MGM property will offer an entirely vegetarian/vegan experience.
According to Pizza 108 owner Chris Dodigovic, an MGM pizza-lover tried the pizza and fell in love with it.
The rest is history.
“They love Pizza 108’s philosophy and the fact that every ingredient is handmade and not store bought,” says Dodigovic. “And obviously, the taste is on par with their world class standards.”
When the shop pops up at Moneyline, they’ll serve a variety of vegan ‘zas and debuting a new vegan pepperoni pie.
Popular pizzas include their Italian sausage and pesto artichoke varieties. In addition, Pizza 108 is also featuring pineapple/jalapeño and BBQ chicken. Customers can also build their own pizza.
The event also has vegan wine and beer.
“This is a huge opportunity to send a message,” he says of the pop-up’s chance to show casinos meat-free concepts are sustainable and profitable.
Roughly translated: if you’re free that night and hungry, show up at the pop-up. Show the resort there’s a demand for vegan eats.
Currently, the only vegan restaurant on The Strip is Truth & Tonic at Canyon Ranch inside The Venetian. When Resorts World opens later this month, Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream debuts in Las Vegas. It marks the first all-vegan ice cream shop in town.
Pizza 108 is a ghost kitchen in Downtown Las Vegas. Opened in late 2019, they serve vegan Neapolitan-style pizzas topped with homemade soy and nut cheese.
Everything at Pizza 108 is handcrafted — you won’t find any processed or store bought products here. The dough, sauces, vegan meats, and vegan cheeses are made in-house.
If you can’t make it to the pop-up (but we hope you can!), you can order Pizza 108 directly. Or, order through onlinerestaurants.com, DoorDash, or GrubHub.

While Pizza 108 does carry dairy products, the kitchen keeps its ingredients separated to avoid cross contamination.
