Crazy Elk Pizza
Address: 565 Mountain Village Blvd, Telluride, CO (next to the gondola/Tomboy Tavern)
Crazy Elk Pizza is your hometown pizza shop. They have all the tropes of back home, starting with convenience of location. This is a great place to hit during all times of the day with the family or on your own. Need a quick bite to maintain your blood sugar levels without eating away the last few hours of daylight? Then, you’re looking for a place that’s just steps from the gondola.
And if pizza while skiing isn’t your thing, you can get delivery during late night when you don’t want to leave your lodge. There is also a wide selection of beers, wines and cocktails for later in the day as well. They tout friendly service, fun and fantastic food in the form of pizza, salads, and heros made on the spot. They use fresh meats, cheeses, and veggies on their pizzas.
What They’re Known for: Their pizza is town all over Telluride. They also have Gluten-free options for those who are sensitive. For larger groups, this is the place to go.
What to Watch for: Thinking that you’re going to get upscale, exotic, and/or how-they-make-it-back-home pies. It’s simply consistently good pizza. Also, remember the “Order at the Counter” policy. If you walk in and just sit, you will likely be ignored.
