About

pam_protoSoon after Pam Proto moved from Boston to Boulder Colorado she was homesick for traditional thin crust, bubbly and charred pizza. Realizing that if she wanted the flavors and smells she so missed from the pizzerias back east, she would have to do it herself. With the help of family and friends the first Proto’s Pizza was born November 1999 in Longmont, Colorado.

Not long after the doors opened, Proto’s Pizza was being recognized in many publications including Bon Appetit magazine. The Pizza experience had been elevated to table service, linen napkins, and delicious wines with a full bar to make it a true dining experience.

Proto’s has been tossing pizza for a long time now. Pam has gone on to open several more locations. No matter which Proto’s you choose as your favorite, one thing will never change, and that is their passion to create and bake for you the best pizza you will ever eat.

Menu

Proto’s does not deliver, but all items are available for take-out. If you’d like, we’ll cook your pie only half way and keep it un-cut. When you get home, simply throw it in your pre-heated 500 degree oven on a stone or sheet and wait 3-4 minutes. Watch it though!!! They cook fast, even at home.

Vino

Since we know you’re a pizza eatin’, vino drinkin’, Proto’s devotee, we want you to know about our monthly wine events. Every month, each Proto’s location “does” casual wine tastings for $15-$25 a person.

The tasting may focus on a particular country, region, varietal or some particular hair-brained notion we feel we need to address. We’re in charge and we’re funny like that. Guaranteed to you is a flight of five cool, interesting wines and the presence of our “wine-y” staff.

Servers at Proto’s are endowed with huge, cascading fonts of wine-oriented knowledge which will wash all over you and your dining experience. Towels will be provided. And wait! That ain’t all! Our pizza makin’ cognoscenti will rattle their collective brain and create a special pizza geared just towards that night’s festivities!

So get on our e-mail list. Choose your location(s) above, and Viola!! You’ll receive e-vites to the Proto’s Monthly Vino Experience (or the “PMVE in the 303) and a free monkey. Okay, no monkey. In vino, veritas.

Learn, Laugh, Love!

Abundance is good, but it’s very important to share it with others. Protos Pizza will comtinue to support local non-profits that help others in greatest need. Our 3L Foundation works with children in Thailand who have been abused, neglected, and trafficked.

Sharing is indeed very good.
