We’ve ordered a lot of takeout and delivery meals from Boulder County restaurants over the last two months, but we must say, our recent experience ordering from Carelli’s of Boulder was exceptional. We were greeted with a friendly conversation on the phone while ordering and, at a distance, when they delivered our meal to the car. Looking at the flowered and shaded patio made us long for a time — which is coming quite soon — when we can dine outdoors there, but getting the babbo pizza to-go was good enough for now. It’s a thin-crust pie with well-apportioned basil, organic tomato slices, garlic, mozzarella and fontina cheeses, and an olive oil glaze. The crust is unique — gentle folds create more surface area for crispness.
