What kind of pizza is your favorite? New York-style? Chicago-style? New Haven-style? Denver has them all, along with many commendable versions of the traditional Neapolitan. Yesterday Mark Antonation ticked off ten different kinds of pizza you can find in metro Denver, including those that defy categorization, like the pies at Hops & Pie. With a list that extensive, you'd think there would be something for everyone. But you'd be wrong.

I do not think ANY quality pizza can be produced with Denver water in this dry climate. Period. End.

But is that the end?

What do you consider the best pizza in Denver?
