Colorado: Blue Pan
Two-year-old Blue Pan in Denver’s West Highland area is young but hungry. The restaurant’s Detroit-style deep dish, the style it’s best known for, has already won a gaggle of awards. Perfect example: The Brooklyn Bridge pie, which took first place in 2014 at the International Pizza Challenge, comes topped with ricotta, oh-so-good natural casing pepperoni whose edges curl up in the oven, sausage, spices and even more cheese. But that’s not all: Blue Pan also serves Chicago-style cracker-thin-crust pizza and New York-style pies as well—and all doughs are made with flours unique to each style. Chef Jeff “Smoke” Smokevitch is the genius behind the business and trained under master pizzaiolo Tony Gemignani. Pro tip: Blue Pan is (not surprisingly) a popular place to be, so grab a pie to go and head to Sloan’s Lake for dinner in the park.
