Dedicated to Pizza, Community, and Activism
Sexy Pizza is the fuel of a revolution. More than just your typical by-the-slice eatery, we aim to combine high quality pizza with social activism. 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 our three Denver locations. And our unwavering commitment to philanthropy and the arts has strengthened our relationship to the community we serve, and our reputation as a force for good in the state of Colorado.
This model of people-over- profits continued when Sexy Pizza opened our second location in the South Pearl neighborhood, which hosted after hours cannabis and comedy events. These parties were the germination of what would become Sexpot Comedy, a network of local comics producing live shows, videos, and podcasts which have gone on to achieve national acclaim. Thus began our tradition of supporting local arts projects like Birdy Magazine, The Colorado Youth Symphony Orchestra and Girls Rock Denver, as well other nonprofits like Denver Homeless Out Loud, Freedom Service Dogs of America, Harm Reduction Action Center, and Students for Sensible Drug Policy.
As Sexy Pizza and Denver continue to grow (we opened our third location in Jefferson Park in 2014) 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 see our success as dependent on the success of our community, as opposed to the hit-it- and-quit-it attitude of so many businesses and developers the city of Denver has endured in recent years. So you can be sure that when you’re enjoying a delicious slice of Sexy Pizza, a hearty portion of your dollars are going to support the city we all call home.
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 2009. This humble pizzeria quickly became a gathering spot for activists, artists and business entrepreneurs looking to collaborate on community projects.
