    Benny Blanco's in Capitol Hill lives up to its name with ample slices of thin-crust pizza. The hole-in-the-wall establishment offers a counter with no seating, but the delicious slices make up for a lack of ambiance. Slices are available with your choice of a wide variety of toppings for reasonable prices. Benny Blanco's pizza is also available for delivery. The pizza counter, which can be hard to spot for first-timers, is sandwiched between Wax Trax and the Snakepit on 13th Ave.

    Lala's Wine Bar and Pizzeria offers authentic Italian-style pizza, along with a wide selection of wines for accompaniment across from Governor's Park in central Denver. Don't miss the lunch special from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. from Monday through Friday, which offers a personal pizza, salad and soda for $7.95. The one drawback to Lala's is the lack of service, as I've had to flag down the inattentive wait staff more than a few times to order. Lala's also offers gluten-free pizza, as well as limited delivery.
