My adventure began with the crust. It was the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy, almost like eating a cloud. If I were being honest, that alone would’ve been enough to make me give Highlands Alehouse five stars.

But it didn’t stop there. The sauce – a homemade blend of tomatoes and herbs – gave an extra layer of flavor that was out of this world. And the cheese? Forget about it! Flawlessly melted into the pizza, it provided just the right amount of creamy goodness. Aesthetically, this pie could’ve graced the pages of any gourmet magazine!

The toppings? Beyond delicious! Fresh vegetables, savory meats, and even some creative additions I hadn’t seen before added to an already-impressive palette of flavors. Not too heavy or greasy either – dried oregano sprinkled on top was a nice touch for texture contrast as well.

In short: Highlands Alehouse has earned my seal of approval for not just offering one of the best pizzas in Aspen, but one of the best pizzas I’ve had anywhere in my travels!
