Scarfing Mountain Pies in Idaho Springs, Colorado
In its historic building on Idaho Springs’ Old West-style main street, Beaujo's Pizza has been a favorite among skiers and locals since 1973. The stars of the menu are the “Mountain Pies"—thick-crusted beauties smothered in toppings and a choice of sauces that includes non-traditional options like smoky barbecue. For a sweet finish, every table has a bottle of honey for drizzling on those wedges of crust which, at other pizza joints, are so often left on the plate. The atmosphere may be antique, but eco-friendly Beaujo’s keeps up with the times: it’s powered by wind and solar energy.
