Dough. Sauce. Cheese. Toppings. Making great pizza may not sound tough, but it’s a tightrope walk: The grease must add flavor without becoming drippy; the sauce can’t be too sweet or too spicy; and the crust needs to be crispy without tipping toward dry and crumbly. The Walnut Room excels at all of these elements. And the RiNo location’s newly expanded kitchen—double the size with two new pizza ovens—means we can enjoy our heaping-with-toppings Mile High pie with some welcome elbow room. 3131 Walnut St., 303-295-1868; 2 Broadway, 303-736-6750.
