Top 10 Pizzeria in Seattle
Why is pizza so popular and loved by so many people? What is it with pizza that gives a drool to people? Some say that pizza is life, because there's nothing better than catching a nice cheesy pizza and a couple of your favorite drinks with your friends or family.
The other reason why pizza appears to be so addictive could be even simpler: cheese. If you like cheese, you are definitely going to love pizza! Goat cheese, mozzarella, ricotta, name it, you can surely put it on a pizza.
The cheese's craving - inducing properties come from an ingredient called casein, a protein found in all dairy products. When we digest this protein, the receptors involved in pain control, reward and addiction release casomorphins that stimulate opioid receptors. Too much for a scientific explanation, huh?
Depending on the ingredients, the size and texture, pizza comes in a very large variety of flavors. Unlike many other foods, it is most likely that everyone will find something they like. Pizza is not that much expensive dish. It's quite affordable for the vast majority of people in many countries. You can buy a piece or two, or a whole box just for you!
Pizza is everywhere. In Seattle, pizza places are throughout the city. These are not the only whole restaurants dedicated to the favorite food of everyone; there are also restaurants that serve pizza every day.
Pizza is versatile. You can go to a lovely restaurant and order a scrumptious fancy, decked out pizza of forty dollars. But you can also stay home and order a pizza of twenty dollars with bread-sticks and enough fat to fix your kitchen cabinet.
Seattle may not be famous for its pizza, but the pizza situation in the city has changed tremendously. And most people are super glad about these half - dozen new places.
In view of the huge pizza developments that have been experienced by the city. Even great Moguls such as Tom Douglas, with three Serious Pie branches, and Ethan Stowell, with three Ballard Pizza Company editions, are entering into the process. Capitol Hill had 5 new pizza spots in the past year. Here are the Seattle’s top 10 Best Pizzerias.
1. Italian Family Pizza
1028 Madison St., Seattle
The interior is not fantastic, but with this good pie, it doesn't need to be. The tomato sauce isn't too salty, not too sweet. If you are not a fan of white pie, clams, or garlic, this is no good for you but if you are, then you have to try the combination here and definitely this place is just right for you. In just right amounts of toppings are used: not too crowded, not too scarce. The crust, which is somewhat thicker than Neapolitan, is pretty perfect with just the right amount of salt and blackened bubbles.
2. Dino’s Tomato Pie
Capitol Hill 1524 E. Olive Way, Seattle
This trapezoidal bar and pizza on olive doles with traditional round pies, but you will definitely want to go for the square cut pieces of the New Jersey-inspired Sicilian-style thick crust, but the inch of crust is bubbled with air, not heavy. The base is burnt and the outer edges of the caramelized cheese give a bonus.
3. The Masonry
20 Roy St., Seattle
A small range of quality classics and a wide selection of vinyl records
Who doesn’t love Pizza with beer? The pie in The Masonry is just the size of a bicycle tire with delightful toppings sitting in a puddle of pepperoni grease and the pitcher is usually a watered-down lager. Opened almost four years ago, The Masonry offers a wide range of handmade beers with three classical pizzas, including a margherita, sausage and mushroom, as well as seasonal snacks, such as bacon, tomato beef steak, roman roast, asiago, grana Ted Danson and the like. Making it the so called “The Good Place” in the neighborhood.
4. The Independent Pizzeria
4235 E Madison St, Seattle
Tiny beach side spot with epic Neapolitan pies. The toppings are almost attractive, but also too good to eat, with their perfect charred crust and skillfully assembled toppings; go ahead and order the number of their prosciutto, Grana, fiore di latte, which has a crisp, summery feel from the mound of rockets. Given the location on the Indie beach, this pizzeria is the perfect choice.
