For my family’s second night in the Evergreen State, and knowing that my little boy is a certified pizza monster, my bro decided to just take out some pizzas for dinner.
And his choice for pizzas? Pagliacci Pizza!
First opened in the University District in 1979 by an Italian family who just “wanted a place where we can get good pizza,” it eventually grew into a place where people gather for a good pizza meal.
It is also among the first restaurants in the area to make strides in growing greener by composting in its kitchens and dining areas, as well as ensuring that most of the packaging it uses are either conpostable or recyclable. Its operations also uses green power sourced from renewable energy sources in the Pacific Northwest.
However, Pagliacci Pizza’s claims to fame are the pizzas it serves which make imaginative use of local and seasonal ingredients to come up with specialty flavors and variants.
To satisfy the pizza cravings of everyone in the group, my bro took home:
The Original (USD13.99 for 11″). Pagliacci’s signature cheese pizza made with whole-milk mozzarella and our seasoned tomato sauce on hand-tossed dough, baked on bricks. This is perfect for my little boy (who’s crazy about all-cheese pizzas).
Extra Pepperoni (USD24.99 for 17″). A blanket of pepperoni covers a layer of mozzarella and Pagliacci’s seasoned tomato sauce.
Parma Primo (USD29.99 for 17″). A layer of prosciutto, mushrooms, goat cheese, mozzarella over olive oil, and finished with tomatoes and basil after done baking. Then flavors of the prosciutto and goat cheese go well together and are further enhanced by the earthy taste of the mushrooms and the fresh flavors of the basil leaves.
Well, we can definitely say that our pizza cravings are satisfied! My little boy, in particular, happily wolfed down his cheese pizza slices.
