Since last autumn, we have had the chance to work with and represent Jason McGovern and Crush Pizza + Tap (formally Denver Deep Dish). To put it lightly – Jason and his team are CRUSHing it! They have successfully gone through a name change and rebranding, and have expanded their menu to include a broader array of pizza styles.
The Lower Highland pizzeria, which has won awards and loyal fans for its deep-dish pies, now offers a hand-tossed variety and a Sicilian, thick-crust style. Dining Out highlighted the restaurant’s unique offerings in its recent round-up Denver pizzerias.
Jason McGovern, the owner of Crush Pizza + Tap, has graciously hosted fundraising events including a Girls on the Run dinner for a group of students from the University of Denver and a non-profit fundraiser for Project PAVE. He sponsored the first HUNI Happy Hour of the year for the LoHi community. He has also provided tenant Happy Hours for the local apartments and has offered special discounts for the local schools, businesses, and the neighborhood.
The new name Crush Pizza + Tap has been received with open arms from the food media and local broadcasts. Jason has become a regular on the Modern Eater Radio Show. He also drew some well-deserved media attention for his Pizza Challenge, eating pizza every day for over 90 days and he is still going! Check out these pieces in Westword and on the Everyday Show about his pizza-eating adventure.
On March 9, 2019, Crush celebrated its 4th anniversary with live music and a large crowd of loyal fans. I think everyone who experiences Crush Pizza + Tap will agree that Jason and his staff go above and beyond to make you feel special and welcomed. And of course, the pizza is something that will leave you wanting more. If you ask us, “Who is our Crush?” we would have to say Jason McGovern and Crush Pizza + Tap!
