"Thank you for calling Pizzicato Gourmet Pizza in Capitol Hill, Denver. Due to the economic times, we have decided to close this location."
That's the message I got when I called the only Colorado outpost of the Oregon-based pizzeria earlier this afternoon to check on a rumor that the joint was shuttered. The sleek pizzeria, which opened just under a year ago at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, still has 22 operating locations in California, Oregon and Washington, but it seems that the Denver pie hole couldn't rise above the local crust.
