Colorado has its own mountain pie pizzas that has had a loyal following since 1973. Beau Jo’s put Denver on the map when it was featured in an episode of Man vs. Food on the Travel Channel for the Beau Jo’s Challenge. The Challenge consists of downing a 14-lb pizza in an hour and you’ll get it for free as well as notoriety.
Aside from the fun and fantastical Beau Jo’s Challenge, Denver loves the healthier options that customers can choose from in their pizzas. Beau Jo’s Denver restaurants also offer delicious options for those with dietary challenges such as those who require gluten-free meals. Besides the ability to eat healthier and choose between white, wheat and gluten-free crusts, warm honey is included in the meal to turn the crusts into a yummy dessert.
Beau Jo’s has a commitment to operate in a socially and environmentally friendly manner. They use Xcel Energy’s Windsource program and is the 16th largest user in the state of Colorado, New Mexico and Minnesota. Each restaurant works hard to recycle, conserve water and electricity while providing biodegradable to-go containers and buying local.
There are currently nine locations in Colorado: Denver, Arvada, Boulder, Fort Collins, Idaho Springs, Evergreen, Steamboat Springs and Durango. Head over to this Denver restaurant soon and get yourself a slice of Colorado’s mountain pie.
