Este Pizza has moved. Now at the corner of 900 East and 2100 South, Este has increased their slice of the pie in the Sugar House pizza scene. According to food critic Ted Scheffler, Este offers the “hands down the most authentic New York Italian style pizza in Salt Lake City.”

“We needed room for another oven.” co-owner Anthony “Stu” Steward said. “Our wait times were too long.” Este has also added a second delivery car. Their new location offers about three times as much seating, but the large space does not feel empty. Murals created by local graffiti artists dress up the walls.

The biggest challenge of the new location was building a “Zion curtain,” the barrier the state requires for an establishment be able to pour liquor. But the curtain became a nice surface for an additional mural. “I think it all worked out for the best,” Stu said.

The new Este has more local beers on tap including Squatters and Uinta brews. While basic pizza recipes stay the same, sometimes Este and nearby Sugar House BBQ team up to make specials such as a recent beef brisket pizza— yum!

Este Pizza is expanding. There will be a new location in Cottonwood Heights this summer, and another location is planned in Park City.
