Brava Pizzeria Della Strada - Website
I found this spot because it happens to be the best reviewed spot in Denver on Yelp. Now, we all know Yelp can be a fickle mistress, she can mislead you, she's a temptress. . .
and this time she's damn right. No offense to the other spots in Denver that I may have missed, but what we have here is high-class, fresh, and affordable Neopolitan pizza in downtown Denver. They operate in front of a tower, with their trailer parked on a patio, burning up wood and pumping out 'za.
With their pedigree (just read their website), wood oven, and Yelp reviews, I had to test them as we do all contenders: with the Margherita.
The Queen - San Marzano tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella fior di latte and the freshest organic basil.
See that? That's a mf'ing Margherita pizza. Those whole leaves of fresh basil, big lumps of fresh mozz, and a fine layer of tomato goodness. If I had a complaint about this pizza, I would say it could have stayed in the oven another 10 seconds, but that's about all folks. Brava would be a top 5 or 6 pizzeria in Austin, right now. Especially given the best part: they charge a reasonable price for this small lump of dough, sauce, cheese, and basil - 7 bucks. Some folks need to take notice - I'd love to pay a few bucks less for our best Neopolitan pies here in ATX.
PS: I spoke with David while I was there for a while about process, prices, and pizza. He's a very nice guy!
