History of El Greeko & poker

This pizza earned its namesake from one of America‚Äôs all time most famous gamblers, Nick "The Greek" Dandolos, who perhaps most well known for the poker match that is said to have inspired the creation of the World Series of Poker. In 1951 Nick "The Greek" approached Benny Binion, notorious American mob boss and owner of the Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas with the desire to play heads up high stakes poker against the best player Binion could find. Seeing the match as an opportunity to increase tourist traffic, Binion set up the game between Nick "The Greek" and Texan poker star Johnny Moss right in the front window of the casino.The Greek had busted every big name poker player that came his way, but this time was different. After five months of nonstop play (taking only short sleeping breaks) and having lost over two million dollars, "The Greek" rose from the table and simply uttered some of the most infamous words in poker history "Mr. Moss, I have to let you go." Over his career Nick "The Greek" claimed he had gambled with over $500,000,000 and gone from rags to riches at least 73 times!†He donated more than $5,000,000 to charity and more than $2,000,000 to 'friends' in need including putting 29 children of friends through college, paying hospital bills for more than 1,000 people, and helping 300 or so to launch businesses of their own.

So, you might ask, "How exactly does this have anything to do with pizza?" Well, legend has it that during that famed poker match at the Horseshoe, a very hungry Nick "The Greek" would order up none other than a special order "El Greeko" pizza! It seemed every time Daniel and Cynthia visited Las Vegas someone told them this story of Nick "The Greek" and his legendary pizza, so they figured why not give it a try!
