When Patzi Azpiroz decided he wanted to introduce authentic deep-dish, Chicago-style pizza in California, he spent two years experimenting with recipes in his San Francisco kitchen. Today there are a half-dozen Patxi's Pizza outlets in California, and this fall Azpiroz and his partner, Bill Freeman, opened the first Colorado Patxi's on South University. On Monday, they opened a second in Cherry Creek.
