In honor of National Pizza Day last Friday (Feb. 9), I created a date good for any day: a pizza by the slice tour of Fort Collins. My date for the night, Lindsey Roberts, and I went to the following restaurants serving the best food on earth: Slyce, Pizza Casbah, and Cosmo’s Pizza.

Slyce:

We started at Slyce, the cutest restaurant and best place for a date by itself. In the middle of Old Town, the picturesque restaurant did not disappoint. We sat down to enjoy a barbecue pineapple slice that we split. The cozy ambiance was great to kick back and enjoy the falling snow, a splendid conversation, and great company.

Lindsey’s Take: “I liked the venue. It was more of a cozy feel, which was good.”

Pro Tip: Ask for your slice to be warmed up extra. On a cold night like Friday, you can avoid a couple of cold last bites and ensure your meal stays full of flavor.

Next up was the most divine slice of pizza of the night: Pizza Casbah’s THE MOBSTER! Coated with meat, THE MOBSTER holds four hearty meats meatballs, bacon, Italian sausage, and pepperoni.

To top it all off, Pizza Casbah is a great place to bring a date. There was groovy music, interesting artwork, and arcade games for my fellow nerds!

Lindsey’s Take: “I really liked that one! The pizza took a little long to get us, but it was worth the wait.”

Pro Tip: Order your own slice because you are not going to want to share something this good!

Cosmo’s Pizza:

The final destination of the night is one of Fort Collins’ favorite late night snack places: Cosmo’s Pizza. We got the only topping that mattered: dollops of gooey cream cheese. We demolished the sizzling piece of pizza in a brief moments. Cosmo’s was the perfect way to end the night with the richness of the cream cheese tasting like dessert!

Lindsey’s Take: “I liked the cream cheese, but it’s a little cold in here.”

Pro Tip: Get the cream cheese for a topping. DO IT!

Lindsey’s Final Take: “I actually thought it was a very clever idea! I told my friends and they were like YES! . . . Pizza is my favorite food so it was a good date for me.”
