Best Of 2013: Local Pizza Joint
Shortly after moving to the Springs, I asked a buddy of mine where the best pizza was hiding. Borriello Brothers, he said. How many brothers are there? I asked. His response: "We're all Borriello Brothers, man." I was skeptical. But Borriello does cater to all, whether you're a pizza traditionalist or prefer your pie a little post-modern. The Colorado Green Chili Pie, which features King's Chef green chili, is highly recommended. The one that converted me, though, was the Godfather, with roasted tomato, crisp ham and Provolone cheese. One bite turned into one slice. One slice turned into a whole pie. I wiped my face with a napkin. Pushed back my chair. Let out a grunt of satisfaction. And considered myself a Borriello Brother, man. —Joshua Hutton
