Does Pizzeria Locale have the right ingredients for Denver?
Creativity is a good thing, except in pizza, when cooks have been known to slap on ingredients better left to other things. Peaches, for example, are great inside a fluted, buttery crust, but not so good smothered with streusel on the dessert pizza I had at a festival this summer.
At Denver's Pizzeria Locale, toppings also stray from the tried-and-true. But with ingredients such as castelvetrano olives, pork meatballs and corn to choose from, the results are far better.
