Live Basil, the buid-your-own-pizza concept restaurant and brainchild of the inimitable, Tom Ryan, is a welcomed addition to the culinary scene in the Mile High City! So, when Yelp Denver was fortunate enough to team up with the highly rated business – Denver Elites went into full Pizza Party mode.
Rounds and rounds of Live Basil's signature pizzas, like The Hot One, The Mediterranean Chicken, and the Classic Marghertia, were passed while owner, Tom Ryan walked us through the menu. Eight different pizzas were served with complimentary pours of Coors Light, New Belgium Beer, and Red and White Vino. For Tiffany W, "this event did a great job showcasing Live Basil's products and concept: fresh, quality, often organic ingredients, and for really real (you guys) live basil..." And for Christopher B The Hot One was his favorite, "but some of the other types were also very good. It's great to know what Live Basil has to offer."
And what's a party without a little healthy competition?! In order to size everyone up in their pizza making abilities, we asked every guest to submit the pizza of their dreams based off all the delicously fresh and organic ingredients available at Live Basil pizza. From there, the anonymous pizza council voted on the top three finalists to be revealed at the event. Once the top 3 pizza finalists were unveiled, elites were welcomed to judge and then vote for their favorite. And, of course, in this case judging included their taste buds. Congrats to Tiffany W, Doug Y, and Dale Z for your 'Pizza Pro' skills and delicious pizza creations! Those custom made chef hats sure look good on you!
