So, in case your head has been under a rock since birth, I would like to inform you that pizza is awesome. We recently had the joy of eating at Beau Jo’s pizza, which is a local pizza chain with several locations in Colorado and other nearby states.
We started off with salads from the salad bar. Salad bars are generally pretty standard, but this one had the joy of being able to create a salad potentially as fattening as your pizza. Hmm, albeit, any salad bar that stocks Ranch dressing (i.e. all of them) has this ability. There was pepperoni to pile on you pizza, as well as mozzarella cheese that looked hand-shredded (or at the least, not dumped out of a bag). The salad that I made was indeed salad-tastic.
Their menu was very extensive, with various Italian options, including a number of vegetarian and gluten-free options. Of the pizzas, you could get a Mountain pie (thick crust) or a Prairie pie (thin crust), either in white or wheat crust. We went for the wheat crust mountain pie, and piled it with a range of toppings – pepperoni, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes.
The pizza was quite tasty, and I regret not having taken a picture at the restaurant itself. I blame this error on whatever I got during Happy Hour. Anyhow, I took a picture of the leftovers when we got home:
Why yes, that is honey that you see! They do this thing where they serve your pizza with a bottle of honey, so that when you’re down to the crust, you can squirt honey all over the crust. It’s really good, so good that I decided it would be a brilliant idea to squirt honey all over the leftovers, as we are quite tragically lacking in honey at home.
Our meal did end up being a bit pricey. Not that I can remember off the top of my head how much, I just remember thinking at the time it was a bit pricey. The price on the toppings adds up fast. Of course, our meal included two beers, two salad bars, plus the pizza we got. And, for that matter, you definitely get what you pay for when it comes to pizza, as the Beau Jo’s pizza was quite magical.
