Bringing San Fran's famous deep dish 'za to Denver, Patxi's serves their slices up right, baked to perfection on a rotating oven to give you that optimal bite. Add whatever toppings your little heart desires and choose from one of their many craft beers on tap.
Some of the best pizza in Denver can be found in Five Points at Buenos Aires Pizza. Six dollar lunch specials are a must-have, and in addition to Argentine-influenced sandwiches, pizza, and appetizers, they also have great gelato.
Ian's Pizza is located across the street from Coors Field and it’s open past the last call and prides itself on using only locally-sourced, high-quality ingredients. This spot serves thick-crusted pie topped with options like pasta, black beans & rice, specialty combos like fish & chips or brats & kraut, and more. You'll also find house-made dipping sauces like green chile ranch, and side salads with 40 different ingredients.
Converting a former art gallery into a neighborhood haunt highlighted by a bar built from a recycled bowling lane, H&P is run by husband & wife chefs intent on bringing elevated brews and classical cooking techniques to the old-fashioned pizza joint, something even Escoffier wouldn't scoff at, and not just because he's dead.
Located inside The Bar Car, Denver Deep Dish offers traditional Chicago-style deep dish pizza with seasonal options and standards like The "505" (Schlereth's hatch-roasted green chile, chicken, onions, cheese & pork green chile sauce) and Pepperoni & Pineapple.
Here're 3 reasons to consider cruising by this approachable LoDo staple: a menu full of great Italian eats, a sick patio, and an appealing happy hour with cheap meatball sliders. Stop by and try one of their incredible handcrafted pizzas, cheese plates, and cured meats. Why aren't you there yet?
Proto's Pizza in Highland is known for thin crusted, traditional Italian pizza at a reasonable price.
Pizzeria Locale is a fast-casual gourmet shop that offers knockout Neapolitan-style pies made with house-made dough, which is then slapped thin and quickly cooked by the flames in their oven. We suggest ordering the Mais with crème fraîche, ham, and corn -- along with beer or wine on tap, a couple of salads, and the famous butterscotch budino for dessert.
Pizza Republica plants its cheesy roots in the CBD, offering 100+ bottles of vino and upscale, wood-fired Neapolitan 'za.
