Reader: Patxi's looks like it does Chicago-style pizza right

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.

And it's about time, says one reader: See also: - Chef and Tell with Patxi Azpiroz, chef of Patxi's Pizza - Patxi's Pizza will start flipping pizzas in Cherry Creek - Patxi's Pizza opens in Englewood

Says monopod:

Very excited to see an underrepresented pizza style (Chicago deep dish) making an appearance in Denver, and from a place that does it right (according to friends in San Francisco). Now we just need a true New Haven-style place, a Detroit pan pizza place, and a really good bar pie and I'll be a happy man.

Have you eaten at Patxi's? What do you think of its Chicago-style pizza? What other kinds of pies would you like to see in Denver? And watch for the second half of our Chef and Tell interview with Patxi Azpiroz on Cafe Society later this morning.
