Best of Vail: Best Pizza
1. Pazzo’s Pizzeria
3. Pickup’s Pizza
Vail Valley’s local pizzeria has locations in Vail, Avon and Eagle. Stop in for homemade pie selections such as the Pizza de Roma, with sun-dried tomatoes, fresh garlic, fresh red peppers, kalamata olives and fresh basil.
“It’s made consistently every time,” says Emile Vasquez, manager of Pazzo’s in Eagle, of their pizza. “You always know what you’re going to get when you come here; we have had the same recipe for 20 years, and it’s never changed.”
Choose from two types of crust — regular hand-tossed, which is think, and the Sicilian, a little thicker.
“The dough is made every singe day,” Vasquez said, “so it’s always fresh.”
Other food is available, as well, such as salads, cheese garlic bread and mozzarella sticks, plus a variety of calzone, pasta and sandwich selections.
