Colorado - Idaho Springs: Beau Jo's Pizza - Pork Green Chili Cheeseburger Pizza
The Pork Green Chili Cheeseburger Specialty Mountain Pie is topped with pork green chili, seasoned ground beef, roma tomatoes, red onions, fire roasted green chilies, and Monterey jack and mild cheddar cheeses.
Beau Jo's Pizza, at 1517 Miner Street in downtown Idaho Springs, was first opened by Chip Bair in the Miner Exchange Building 1973. What started out of a tiny, 18-seat store has expanded to seat nearly 600 in a small town with a population of 1,800, and included seven other locations in Colorado and one in South Dakota. Beau Jo's legendary Colorado-style Mountain Pies is served by the pound, not by the inch. The High Altitude pizza features thick hand-rolled edges and is topped high with fresh toppings. Pies are offered in honey whole wheat grain or standard honey white crust, and each table includes a squeeze bottle of honey for crust dipping purposes.
