Who knew? Judging from the response to our story that Godfather's Pizza is coming back to Colorado after a twenty-year absence, people are hungry for the pizza you can't refuse. Says Leonard:
About time. I've been waiting for Godfather's Pizza to come back to Colorado. I used to work for Godfather's back in the '80s, so I know how good they were then; I hope they come to the Denver and Aurora area soon. Welcome back.
Even though Denverites insist they will welcome the Godfather, will he make the finals of the Best of Denver Readers' Poll in 2017? You can still vote for the finalists in the Best of Denver 2016 Readers' Poll; the deadline is tomorrow night. And those Best Pizza finalists are:
Denver Deep Dish
Blue Pan Pizza
Hops & Pie
Remember, Westword food writers will also make their own pick for Best Pizza. But you can vote for your favorite finalist now on the Best of Denver 2016 Readers' Poll — and then watch for all the winners on March 31, when the Best of Denver 2016 hits the street...and this website.
