If pizza can be healthy, Sazza, a sustainably minded eatery in Greenwood Village, has found the formula. Portion control is managed by the small (personal) and large (feeds two) sizes, and the thin-crusted pies can hold only so many organic toppings before drooping.

There are menu staples, but specials make creative use of what’s in season. Right now, that means a roasted-pumpkin pizza made with local organic pumpkin from Stewart Farms, garlic oil, Gruyère, mozzarella, organic caramelized onions, bacon, fresh Colorado organic sage, and toasted pumpkin seeds.

Bonus: The mismatched styling further reflects Sazza’s green mantra: Glasses are recycled wine bottles, and customers donate the silverware and employee’s T-shirts.

2500 E. Orchard Road, Greenwood Village, 303-797-2992
