Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Last year, Denver Deep Dish moved out of Bar Car and into its own space at 1200 West 38th Avenue, on the edge of Highland, where it's creating pies good enough to snag the Best Chicago-Style Pizza award in the Best of Denver 2017.  But readers have been quick to slice our pizza picks. Says Benjamin:  

I feel too many pizza places have opened in Denver. So much saturation in the pizza market that I have literally become sick and tired of pizza. I mean, in the Highlands alone you have about eight pizza places! Too much pizza, it's time to get a little more creative.

Adds Chris:  

Regarding the Best Chicago-Style Pizza choice, I've NEVER had a "soupy mess" pizza in Chicago. I've had plenty of shit-style wanna-be Denver ones, though. It is always good when someone does come up with a fairly decent deep-dish pizza (read: Patxi's).

For the record, Patxi's was the Readers' Choice for Best Chicago-Style Pizza. What do you think of the pizza options in Denver?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
