Is Denver the Next Big Pizza Town?


Don't ask me why, but I used to get, and continue to get, inquiries about "the best pizza in Denver" and/or Colorado. I don't know what it is about the Mile High City that has pizza lovers asking for advice, but damn if the Centennial State isn't adding pizzerias at a good clip. Yesterday, the Denver Business Journal listed a number of new places opening there:

myPie: 3928 Wadsworth Boulevard, Wheat Ridge CO 80226 (at Vance Street; map)
The Rock: 7395 West Alaska Drive, Denver CO 80033 (39th/41st avenues; map)

That's in addition to Organic Pizza Company in Denver and Pizzeria Locale and Pizzeria da Lupo in Boulder.

Could the Front Range be the next pizza hotspot à la San Francisco?
