Denver may not have its own signature pie, but it’s a thriving pizza town nonetheless, representing the full spectrum of regional American — not to mention traditional Italian — styles. From Detroit and New York to Naples and Sicily, there’s something here for everyone. In fact, there are so many stellar parlors in metro Denver alone (including the brand-new, much-buzzed-about Red Tops Rendezvous) that there’s no room for their Boulder metro counterparts below; to offer a quick rundown of the most notable up north, then, consider Pizzeria Alberico, Basta, New Yorkese, Westbound & Down, and Rosalee’s Pizzeria. Also worth tracking down is mobile vendor Outside Pizza, whose schedule can be found here.
As for these 20 spots, they’ve either long defined the local scene or are quickly proving themselves indispensable to it: Here’s a true slice of the Mile High City.
