More than just your typical by-the-slice eatery, we aim to combine high-quality food with civic and community engagement. Our hand-tossed, deck-oven pizzas are always made from scratch (including the dough and sauce) with fresh ingredients and hand-cut veggies, making them a neighborhood favorite at all our locations for more than a decade. Our unwavering commitment to philanthropy and the arts has strengthened our relationship with the communities in which we operate and our reputation as a force for good in the state of Colorado.
The team behind Sexy Pizza originally met in the summer of 2005 while working on the campaign to decriminalize cannabis in the city of Denver (the first of its kind, the measure passed and opened the floodgates for legalization nationwide). After a long process of experimenting with recipes, discussing our ethics and values, and making the most of a shoe-string budget, we opened our first Sexy Pizza location in Capitol Hill in 2008. This humble pizzeria quickly became a gathering spot for activists, artists and business entrepreneurs looking to collaborate on community projects.
Our second location on Old South Pearl opened in 2012, our third in Jefferson Park in 2015, and we currently have plans on opening in Park Hill in 2020 and Kansas City, Missouri in 2021. As Sexy Pizza and Denver continue to grow it is more important than ever that we, as a business, remain engaged with the community that we not only serve but live, work and play in. We’ve spawned other businesses (Birdy magazine, Sexpot Comedy), have been a leader on the topics of homelessness, drug policy reform, and employee ownership, and offer our employees one of the best benefits packages in the city (fully compensated health and dental, 401k retirement plan match, PTO, and more).
