People love Giordano's, they hate Giordano's. They love the Detroit-style pizza at Blue Pan, they hate Blue Pan pie. Is there really any good New York-style pizza in Denver? Any good pizza at all?
I've had some good circular cheesy bread in Denver but no pizza.Comments Matthew:
There isn't a NY style slice in Denver that doesn't taste like a Manhattan dollar slice. Your pick included. (This is not a good thing.)Explains Chris:
"NY style" IS Neopolitan. What differentiates it are subtle differences in quality of the hand-tossed crust (which, like the bagels, has a lot to do with the water), a sweeter sauce and rich (high fat) mozzarella cheese (which is what makes it drop grease).Notes Amanda:

Blue Pan Pizza is far from what I would call the best Detroit style. It's okay pizza at best. There's an actual Detroit (area) pizza chain called Jets. Go there. Get two. Extra ranch. Eat the second while hungover and thank me later.Argues Stefanie:
Crush Pizza and Tap is not Chicago Pizza. Too flat. Go to Giordano's. They wouldn't even open in Denver until they conducted a number of tests on the water and in the altitude to ensure authenticity.Adds Kathleen:
What about Beau Jo’s? They INVENTED mountain pie!Offers Christan:
Pizzeria Lui, White Pie and Blue Pan are delish. Shout outs to Black Shirt Brewery, Gozo (depending on what chef is cooking) and Vero Italian.And Allie concludes:
I want to try them all!Keep reading for more on different pizza styles in Denver.
