Best Pizza -- Connecticut Style (2003)

Papou's Pizza

Up-and-comer Papou's Pizza has cornered the Denver market for Connecticut-style pizza -- primarily because it's the only place in town making pies this way. The toppings are high-quality and laid on with a generous hand, but what really sets this pizza apart is the way it's cooked: pan-baked in a brick oven. With thick, soft, chewy crusts on the bottoms and crisp bones, Papou's pies fill that space on the pizza spectrum between the thin-crust New Yorker and the deep-dish Chicago variety.
