For decades, the dedicated pizza purveyors behind Magpies have woven together appealing pies that burst at their dough-seams with ingredients made fresh on-site every day. The expansive menu presents an appetizing array of options. Specialty pies—such as the Godfather, which manages a tightly knit family of mozzarella, swiss, cheddar, and romano cheeses and a meaty gang of Italian sausage, Canadian bacon, and capicola ($2.99 slice, $14.99 12", $17.99 14", and $20.99 16")—carry out quick, efficient digestive hits. Culinary constructioneers, meanwhile, can design their own doughy disc ($2.99 per slice, $10.99 12", $12.99 14", $14.99 16"). Starting with a foundation of New York–style regular, wheat, or crispy-sourdough crust, add a decorative daub of fresh sauce such as house red, tomato pesto, or barbecue sauce. From there, add on cheeses, veggies, and meats (extra ingredients cost $0.50 per slice, $1.49 each for 12", $1.79 each for 14", and $1.99 each for 16")—or indulge your mad scientist by piling together anchovies, fresh cilantro, pineapple, piñon nuts, and feta cheese and then bringing it to life during an electrical storm.

Since 2005, Steve and Renee Kreager have garnered abundant acclaim for their pies and pastas, which they concoct with locally sourced, organic ingredients.

Free-range chicken adds protein to any vegetarian or gluten-free salad, and housemade sauces and meatballs top hearty pastas. Organic wines or brews from the sustainable New Belgium Brewery wash down each tasty dish. In addition to its environmentally conscious cooking, Renee's Organic Oven observes green-minded business practices such as its oil-recycling program, which converts unused olive oil into trees.
