Whenever we’re feeling saucy, we like to dig into a slice of local pizza. Seattle’s pizza scene is bubbling with options — and we keep finding ways to top ourselves. If you’re on the quest for the perfect slice, we’ve pie-oneered a list of 25 places to grab pizza that are definitely worth the dough.
Spark Pizza, 8110 164th Ave. NE, Redmond
Maybe stay closer to downtown Seattle for a slice, but don’t count out this family-owned spot that earned a mention as one of the top 50 pizza restaurants in the US by a major Italian food blog.
Think outside the pizza box
MOTO, Various locations
It’s maybe best known as the pizza place that you have to make reservations three months in advance for (yes, it’s that good), but MOTO’s new Belltown location also has robots to help churn out those Detroit-style pies.
Rocco’s, 2312 Second Ave.
Look for creative flavorss like Banh Mi with pulled pork and cucumber, or loaded baked potato with potato (naturally), bacon, and a ranch base.
Not to sound cheesy
Razzi’s, 8523 Greenwood Ave. N. + 1314 Howell St.
“Savor without sacrifice” is the motto for this restaurant’s extensive gluten-free and vegan menu. Enjoy vegan BBQ “chicken” or NW Mex pies — along with countless other appetizer and pasta options.
Pi Vegan Pizzeria, 5301 Roosevelt Way NE
This spot bills itself as the “oldest vegan pizzeria,” but we’re mostly impressed by combos like the Shroom Truffle Shuffle with mushies and truffle oil and the Green Monster Mac with mac n’ cheeze and bac’n.
Elder Gods Pizza, 9629 16th Ave. SW
Tucked away inside White Center’s Full Tilt Ice Cream, this vegan kitchen has offerings like the pickle pie and a “just cheese” pizza.
My Friend Derek’s, 3601 Woodland Park Ave. N.
This restaurant can be a little tricky to order from since they’re not open on a regular schedule, but they’re worth the effort. Make your mix from toppings like Mama Lil’s Peppers and cheap sausage.
The Pizza Coop & Ale House, 13317 NE 175th St., Woodinville
A solid choice if you’re craving those chewy square slices — give the cubano pizza or the Ste Michelle (inspired by the WA wine company) made with a chardonnay butter sauce.
Windy City Pie, 5918 Phinney Ave. N.
Here’s a longtime favorite for folks looking to dive straight into a pool of chewy delicacies. It may be tempting to get the classic Mama Mia, but don’t pass up more adventurous combos like the Brussels sprout made with veggies and candied bacon.
Delfino’s Chicago Style Pizza, 2631 NE University Village St.
This deep dish spot has been serving pies for almost thirty years. Its large apple pie is also served in the Midwestern format with Granny Smith apples, cinnamon, caramel, brown sugar, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream (should you please).
Johnny Mo’s, 3272 Fuhrman Ave. E. + 558 Main St, Suite 200, Edmonds
This restaurant highlights its imported tomatoes and “dollops of homemade sauce” on many of its pizza combinations — we want to curl up under a throw blanket just thinking about it.
West of Chicago Pizza Company, 3770 SW Alaska St.
Before it’s full-on sit-down restaurant, this favorite was just a take-out window in Delridge. But regardless of how big its operations were, we’ve always been dying to take a little swim in these tiny little lakes of tomato and cheese.
New York nibbles
Big Mario’s, Various locations
Expect flavors for every palette here with options ranging from classics like pepperoni to the Williamsburg with rosemary potatoes, mushrooms, and goat cheese.
Post Alley Pizza, 1123 Post Ave.
If it was a snake it would’ve bit you — this spot tucked away in the depths of Pike Place Market offers many of the classics along with options like bacon + red onion and Philly surf and turf.
Ballard Pizza Company, Various locations
This local restaurant chain really takes Seattle to heart with options like “The Troll” featuring Italian sausage, red bell pepper, and spicy coppa.
Brick oven beauts
Bruciato, 236 Winslow Way E., Bainbridge Island
You’ll have to take a ferry in order to enjoy one of these pies if you’re in Seattle, but you certainly won’t regret the journey when you tear into a chewy slice. Check out on the exceptional cocktail menu, too.
Delancey, 1415 NW 70th St.
The dough is made from Washington wheat and its toppings consist of seasonal fruits and vegetables — it’s all very homegrown. But don’t miss out on creative pies like the wood-fired Alvarez corn with basil compound butter, and a variety of herbs.
Serious Pie, Various locations
This restaurant’s Ballard location was to-go only, but is now open to indoor dining — plus cocktails and other libations. But also enjoy some fun flavors like yukon gold potato and delicata squash regardless of whichever location you end up at.
Bar del Corso, 3057 Beacon Ave. S.
You may not be able to easily find this restaurant’s menu offerings online, but rest assured — it’s worth braving the mystery for with chewy crusts and bright, zesty tomato sauce just waiting for you.
Lupo, 4303 Fremont Ave. N.
A favorite amongst our local craft beer drinkers, this pizza joint uses a tart sourdough crust to round out its robust flavors and deliciously salty cheese.
Cascadia Pizza Co., Various locations
What began as a food truck has now expanded into a serious Eastside brand with locations in Enumclaw, Maple Valley, and Bellevue. Also, hot tip — the Maple Valley location is situated directly next to a river, giving it some distinct PNW vibes.
