More than 2 feet across and weighing as much as a bowling ball, the Beast is a formidable pizza. Any pair of gastronauts who can tackle the monstrous mega-pie in 45 minutes or less gets their $45 back, plus $100 for their trouble.
The Beast is hardly the only signature item at Simple Simon's Pizza, which opened at Woodlawn Shopping Center on May 8.
Also on the menu: “Calizones,” calzones brimming with creamy Italian-style “Alpine sauce,” and specialty pizzas, including the Cheeseburger, topped with beef, onions, pickles, mustard, mozzarella and cheddar cheese. If that's not enough, throw in some chicken wings, oven-baked sandwiches and stromboli.
General manager Dylan Ramos said he hopes Simple Simon's stands out.
“Hopefully people think we're a step up from the rest,” Ramos said. “Nobody else does it like we do.”
The Littleton pizza joint joins more than 200 other locations, mostly in Texas, Oklahoma and other points southeast, and is the second one in Colorado after Pueblo.
Ramos, who previously ran the Pueblo location, was summoned to Littleton to get the new location just right. He said the store will deliver in a roughly 2-mile radius, though he said he's still adjusting his anticipated delivery times against Littleton's congested streets.
“Traffic's a lot worse here than in Pueblo,” Ramos said.
Ramos said it's clear locals are eager to try it out.
“People keep calling to order pizza,” Ramos said on May 2. “I have to tell them they've got a few more days to wait.”
