Marco’s Pistachio Pizza

February 2013

Order the pistachio pie at Marco’s Coal-Fired Pizzeria and watch as a pizzaiolo transforms a dough ball into a disk, paints it with an herby pistachio pesto, adds fresh rounds of mozzarella, and tops it with cubes of fennel sausage. In the oven it goes for 90 seconds before it emerges with the cheese bubbling. There’s a quick pause while the pie is cut into sixths, and then it’s sent your way. When it arrives, claim your piece(s) immediately for a bite of the slightly nutty, perfect slice of pizza. 2129 Larimer St., 303-296-7000; 10111 Inverness Main St., 303-790-9000, marcoscoalfiredpizza.com
