Gold: Angelo’s Pizza

A taste of East Coast cuisine fused with local flavors is found at Angelo’s Pizzeria, which boasts the best pizza pie in town. Founder Rich Foresta oversees the full-service pizza parlor and has been concocting tasty creations since 1992. Foresta has come far from partaking in a small family business in Brooklyn to currently owning Angelo’s in Pueblo. Hundreds line up at Angelo’s each week for a slice of the pie. The pizzas are always fresh and feature special local ingredients like Pueblo chilies and ricotta cheese. Locals love the traditional thin and crispy crust pizza with flavorful topping combinations or the hearty, thick-crusted Sicilian pies on the menu. The signature brick oven flavor, laid back and quaint atmosphere and excellent servers make Angelo’s Pueblo’s favorite pizza place.
