A Look at Pizzeria’s Across America
Sexy Pizza | Denver, Colorado
Sexy Pizza opened its first location in 2008, growing to three stores by 2014 with a fourth on the horizon. “We are more than just your typical by-the-slice pizza eatery, we aim to combine high-quality pizza with social activism,” says owner Kyle Peters. “Our hand-tossed, deck-oven pizzas are always made from scratch with fresh ingredients, making them a neighborhood favorite at our three Denver locations. And our unwavering commitment to philanthropy and the arts has strengthened our relationship with the community. We currently have four ‘Donation Pies’ where we give a portion of our profits to four different non-profit organizations.” Its pizza menu of 15 New York-style pies is accompanied by pastas, subs, salads and sides. “Our best-selling specialty pizza is the Sexy Sheikh,” he says. “Hand-tossed dough with freshly made sauce and shredded mozzarella topped with pepperoni, fresh jalapeños and cream cheese — it’s like a pepperoni jalapeño popper on a pizza!”
