With a signature pizza size called the Monster, you’d expect Pudge Brothers Pizza to be more focused on quantity than quality. But in fact, the chefs create their signature varieties of hand-tossed pies by blending together the flavors of three sauces, a range of meats, and fresh veggies. From within sizzling ovens, chefs pull out creations such as the Jersey Girl—a pizza featuring italian sausage and green peppers—or the White Delight—a ham, chicken, and garlic-sauce combination. Pies range in size from 10 inches to 18 inches, with a range of garlic bread, wings, and cinnamon bread to fill in a meal. The shop also offers delivery service, ensuring clients can have a hot, hearty meal when time is short or when the paparazzi won’t leave their front yard.
Denver Pizza Company offers a menu overflowing with thin-crust and gluten-free base layers for topping mountains of spice blends and flavorful ingredients. A personal pie ($4.99), like a studio apartment, offers the freedom to arrange toppings however you'd like within 8 inches of personal space. The popular 5280 tops its upper crust with mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, and a 5,280-spice blend crushed together by the local Spice Boys of the Rockies ($14.99). The Hero pizza flattens toppings from its homophone—the gyro—including tzatziki sauce, lamb meat, kalamata olives, tomato, and fresh basil leaves onto a foldable pizza slice ($17.25).
The Saucy Noodle's trademark red-and-white canopy has been welcoming locals with piping hot platters and Old World Italian charm for more than four decades. Drop in for lunch and demurely dine on crisp caesar salad ($6.95) sprinkled with fresh romano cheeses and homemade dressing. Italian meatball sliders ($7.95) bubble with caramelized onions and mozzarella cheese, and tempting pastas ($7.95+) and specialty plates such as eggplant parmigiana ($8.95) inspire formerly recalcitrant taste buds to sing Billy Joel's greatest hits.
Every pizza at Kaos is freshly prepared in true Neapolitan-style, gently coaxed into the wood-fired oven using soft compliments and pheromone trails before being fire-baked to crispy perfection.

Sate on standard flavor combinations or perform magic tricks to lure more exotic pizzas into your stomach such as the garden, packed with an olive oil and garlic base, mozzarella, provolone, tomatoes, arugula, fresh egg, and shaved parmesan ($10–$16), or the sopressata salami ($15–$20), built for carnivore cowboys with pesto, potato, mozzarella, provolone, and farm-fresh egg.

Since 1987, Buffalo Bill's has been whisking boxes of hot wings to the doors of Denver. Before delivery, the wings are tossed in one of 15 sauces, which range from mild and sweet to absolutely fiery, depending on if the customer wants to decimate piles of napkins. Pleasant lemon-herb and sweet-and-sour sauces share space with three types of barbecue sauce and seven different levels of hot sauce. Buffalo Bill's also delivers Pudge Bros. pizza, custom-made or in specialty variations.
With aged dough and Wisconsin whole milk mozzarella the chefs at Willie's NY Pizza make stone oven-baked pizzas. They heed customers' requests for more than 20 toppings, adding bell peppers, jalapenos, and artichoke hearts before shoveling it carefully into the stone oven. The kitchen staff also prepares other pub-style food such as wings and garlic knots—which are what Vampire Boy Scouts fear above all else. Willie’s can also host special events and parties, and it can even accommodate groups for fundraisers.
