Talk about a good neighborhood pizza joint. This is my favorite. It's in a very vibrant area of the Highlands which just seems to keep booming.

Proto serves one of the better thin crust pizzas in Denver. They offer a good array of fresh ingredients, small salads and a decent little bar. The place is small and has a limited number of tables, but the patio is great if it's warm.

This is a place where you want to sit down, split a fresh green salad and have a thin crust (not too heavy) pie. Finish it with either a crisp white or a flavorful red and you have a good start to your evening. On occasion, they have wine

The pizza is light with excellent flavor. The atmosphere is young & urban & neighborhoody. My only complaint is that sometimes the staff is standoff-ish. But it's usually because they are so busy. There are only a couple of tables outside,

Best pizza I have had in long time. Was amazingly fresh. I have gone back three times in the past month. I love the concept of the "Wino Card" they offer when you purchase a bottle of wine. I also recommend the tomato salad.
