Readers' Choice: Anthony's Pizza
There's something to be said for a place that does pizza and nothing but pizza. No pastas, no hoagies, no chicken parm sandwiches or slices of up-from-frozen cheesecake. Although the Oven doesn't quite rise to that level of obsessive focus -- you can get apps of olives and fresh mozzarella, still almost liquid, and there are a few other slight departures -- it comes close with a menu that has pizza as its heart and soul. Really good, really consistent, really rustic pizza served with love and pride. The Oven crew makes everything to order (including the dough, cheese and sauce) for a house that is almost always full, shuffling pizzas around in the big, exposed wood-fired ovens and boxing takeout requests with shocking speed. Every neighborhood should have a pizza place as good as the Oven.

I don't quite understand how the oven can be best pizza? First of all the oven is gourmet cracker pizza which should be in another catagory. Real pizza is a big foldable slice of NY Pizza. This only one place that is not a chain and has the best pie in Denver. Virgilio's Pizzeria in Lakewood in the place.
