First of all, I have to say that I have always been a big fan of "AUTHENTIC NEW YORK PIZZA" - not New York (style) Pizza (in disguise) as many places profess, and I've had my unfortunate taste of those. Obviously, everyone has their own definition of what New York pizza is to them, but my personal findings based on "multiple sacrificial tastings" in NYC are as follows:

1.) Pizza is a "highly personal experience" for those who have been to the NY hangouts (especially near NYU and/or uptown Manhattan) and have dined on that which the college youth dine on - that to me sets the standard, i.e. the good places are good, the other places are merely pretenders.

2.) The crust must be thin - no, not paper thin, but thick enough to hold the toppings and yet light enough to enjoy both the toppings and the ENTIRE CRUST without feeling as though you just "swallowed an elephant" and cannot finish THE WHOLE THING.

3.) The toppings must not be dominated by the marinara - the key to exceptional NY Pizza is BALANCE - the "marriage" of all ingredients on a "super-edible crust" as mentioned earlier.

4.) If you ask for extra mozzarella, they honor your request, i.e. if you want to tilt the balance slightly in favor of the cheese, THEY DELIVER.

The answer to the above in Beaver Creek Resort is BLUE MOOSE PIZZA - give yourself the gift of TRUE NEW YORK PIZZA in the beautiful frontiers of Colorado!!!

VERY unpleasant hostess and marginal pizza. Surely there are better ways to relax in BC. The staff seemed to resent the restaurant, guests and their job. Very disappointing, given all the hype about the place.

Very tasty pizza, nice staff, plus they give you crayons to write on the tablecloth - what's not to love? Hard to believe this is owned by the same group as Chophouse (which we gave 2 stars)

Nothing better than a great spot and only game in town. Pizza and food was good, but had to wait 70 mins for two pizzas and salad to go...would suggest getting there early or late, 6-8pm and they essentially stop taking orders, I saw more people come in and leave than stay to eat.

come in off the slopes and avoid a long wait by getting there before 5:00; usually packed; white paper table tops with crayons so you can draw anything, including 'blue mooses'
