Reader: Denver is being flooded with pizza places

Yesterday's news that Fired Up, a new pizza joint, will soon be opening in the Golden Triangle inspired this comment from Manfrenjensen:
WTF is up with all the new pizza joints opening up all of a sudden?? I thought the upscale burger, cupcake, and DIY frozen yogurt trends were something, but I think the influx of pizzerias has surpassed all of them. That said, I'm all for new GOOD pizza places, and I am hoping that more than a few of these new ones prove out and survive. What's next?

More pizza?

An hour later, in response to the news that Toppings, a new pizza joint, is opening in LoDo, Manfrenjensen says:

Ha! Apparently, a new pizza joint opened in the time it took me to comment on the previous article about the influx of new pizza joints!

Can there ever be too much pizza? What neighborhoods are over-pied, and which could use a slice?
