Proto’s Pizza Menu and Prices updated 2021


Proto’s Pizza Menu

Pam Proto was nostalgic for classic thin crust, bubbly, and charred pizza after moving from Boston to Boulder, Colorado. She realised she’d have to make her own pizza if she wanted the flavours and scents she missed from the pizzerias back east. Proto’s Pizza was founded in November 1999 in Longmont, Colorado, with the aid of family and friends.

Proto’s Pizza was featured in a number of publications shortly after it launched, including Bon Appetit magazine. To make it a genuine dining experience, the pizza experience has been improved to include table service, linen napkins, and great wines with a full bar.
