The Pizza Files 2009 Summer Binge Part 10! I'm two over budget. In Gunnison, CO today, the motel staff gave me 2 recommendations that were in walking distance, one a "cowboy bistro" and the second was Mario's Pizzeria & Ristorante. I actually went to the cowboy bistro (I'm in cowboy country after all), but they were closed. That's how I came to part 10.
I started with a Mario's famous 1/2 & 1/2 salad (half iceberg lettuce and half rotini pasta mixed with black olives, tomatoes and bell peppers and topped with mozzarella cheese and pepperroni), and for the main course I ordered a 11" pizza with pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, meatballs and onions.
