Seriously… we were salivating while writing this post. It’s the Italian treat that we’ve all come to crave. And while Colorado Springs might be thousands of miles away from Italy, the pizza scene is alive and well!
Here’s our list of the best pizza places in Colorado Springs, broken down into all of our favorite categories (New York Style, Neapolitan, and Uncategorized Deliciousness)!
Whether you’re looking to get a quick midday bite or a midnight snack, Fat Sully’s is the perfect stop for some delicious New York style pizza. You can order your meal as a slice or as a massive 26” pie, perfect for sharing among family or friends. Either way, you are going to want to come hungry!
Located near the Patty Jewett Golf Course just northeast of downtown Colorado Springs, this pizza joint is bringing the city together over everyone’s favorite Italian dish. Leon Gessi New York Pizza is a family-owned business that’s been in operation since 1974. They specialize in New York style pizza, while also serving delicious subs, salads, and more. They use fresh, homemade ingredients every day, making for an authentic slice of New York pizza.
Ruffrano’s Hell’s Kitchen Pizza is serving New York Pizza from two locations in Colorado Springs and one, the original, in Manitou Springs. If you’re craving something unique and more on the spicy side, order the flaming hot Hellfire pizza made with hot Italian sausage, pepperoni, cherry peppers, and hellfire sauce. For anyone with dietary restrictions, grab a delicious gluten free or vegan pizza. Head in for your next slice or, if you want a cozy night in, opt for free delivery!
Slice 420 is serving up more than New York style pizzas — they’re also on a mission to help children, veterans, and the sick by donating a portion of their proceeds to several nonprofits. They are a family-owned restaurant that is dedicated to delivering delicious pizza, using quality ingredients, and supporting a cause that’s near to their hearts. Stop by to grab a slice or two and learn about the work they are doing in our city.
Poor Richard’s is one of the O.G.s when it comes to pizza in Colorado Springs. Downtown residents, workers, and visitors have loved this little haven for more than 50 years now. Head in to build your own pizza, grab a glass of wine, and likely maybe catch a local musician playing some tunes. While you’re there, visit the adjoining toy store and bookstore, both full of treasures for the entire family!
Bambino’s Urban Pizzeria takes quality and transparency seriously. If you drop by the restaurant, you’ll find an “open performance kitchen” where you can watch the staff build and bake your pizza, see fresh herbs and vegetables being grown on the back wall, and peer into the shop’s “dough room,” where the homemade mozzarella and dough are created from scratch. Choose from one of their house pies or customize your own to fit your pizza craving. Bambino’s is located in the heart of downtown Colorado Springs and is the sister restaurant to the Skirted Heifer.
There’s nothing you can’t find at Basil & Barley. They offer more than 20 different varieties of pizza ranging from traditional classics to modern signatures. Whatever you decide on (it’s a tough choice, we know), it’ll be a little slice of history, as each pizza is baked in an Acunto Neapolitan oven, which was imported directly from Naples, Italy. In addition to incredible pizza, the pizzeria also serves a wide selection of beers and wines to compliment your meal.
Duca’s Neapolitan Pizza is another stop on the Neapolitan train through Colorado Springs. Bite into a slice from this local joint and be transported to an Italian village. Their pies consist of dough made from scratch each morning topped with fresh mozzarella and vegetables, baked in an original handmade Stefano Ferrara Neapolitan brick oven. With two locations in and near Downtown Colorado Springs and one off Voyager Parkway, great Neapolitan pizza is accessible to all!
Pizzeria Rustica is dedicated to providing a simple menu chock full of traditional flavors. Their award-winning pizzas contain ingredients sourced both locally, to support our farmers, and from Italy, to ensure an authentic dining experience. Walk off the streets of Old Colorado City and into what feels like “a generations-old neighborhood trattoria in Italy.” Enjoy a slice (or ten!) and then browse the adjoining art and jewelry gallery.
While it is a chain restaurant that was founded in Albuquerque, NM, Il Vicino has become a main staple in Colorado Springs. Its location in the popular University Village makes it a great spot to grab lunch or dinner after checking out some of the local shops. They have a fantastic selection of wines and bears and they offer a spread of pizza varieties.
White Pie brought New Haven style pizza to downtown Colorado Springs, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Their hand-tossed pizza has a thin crust that bubbles in the heat of the oven. While they have other things to tempt your tastebuds like roasted cauliflower, salads, and even cannolis, we recommend their signature White Pie pizza. It’s made with crème fraîche, mushrooms, bacon, garlic, mozzarella, and is topped off with a sunny-side up egg in the center – you can’t go wrong by ordering it!
You haven’t lived a day in Colorado Springs if you haven’t experienced Louie’s Pizza. With five locations across the city, there’s no reason to deprive yourself of the local chain’s delicious pies and other Italian treats. If you’re looking for delivery or to dine in, look no further than this Spring’s favorite. Don’t forget to grab a side of cheesy bread (garlic bread topped with mozzarella) — you’ll thank us later.
What’s your pizza style of choice? From thin-crust to deep dish to gluten free — Colorado Springs has a little bit of everything!
