Boulder, CO; not enough time
I got stuck in Boulder last weekend due to the storm in MN. The only good thing was it afforded me a chance to try pizza. Apparently it's a mecca for WFO pizza.

Pizzeria Basta
Excellent food (using local and seasonal when possible) and atmosphere. They are doing other entrees in the WFO. (Roasted chicken was great!)
Big restaurant. May have been the best pizza I've ever had )in the short time I've been paying more attention.) It was like a thin piece of bread with toppings... very good from the first bite. Almost had 2, as the Margherita was on the happy hour list.. only $5!!
Pizzeria Locale
Thy try to keep it authentic as they don't cut your pie at all.
Bop Pizzeria
They had something called a Mezza Luna (half calzone-half pizza). The calzone had a nice ricotta with Italian pepperoni in it.

A couple more that I didn't make it too..
Pizzeria De Lupo (on Arapahoe)
The Mediterranean (on Walnut)
Trattoria on Pearl (on Pearl)

I think there's a couple in Denver and another in Louisville (or Lafayette) too.

Nice going, Terry! Did you take pictures? You covered a lot of ground in that short time. I wish I had thought of that. We dropped anchor at the first cool bar and the rest is just a foggy memory. Something about Laudisio's then eating a Scotch egg at some pub type joint then a very cool sports bar. The last morning was a decadent chocolate cupcake with bacon.
And... oh yeah... there were a lot of mobile ovens in there...somewhere.

I didn't talk a lot of pics, but I got some of the pizza.

This was the Mezza Luna.

If you're in Boulder you must go to the Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery. They don't have pizza, but there beers are brewed on site, there are no televisions anywhere, and the staff is amazing.
