Wood fired, thin crust Neapolitan pizzas are what Veraci is all about. Veraci Pizza features a delicious ultra-thin artisan crust made from their secret recipe.
Pizzas cook for a blistering 90 seconds in their kiln ovens, and come out supremely bubbling and smokey. Pizza just how it should be.
They call themselves “a pizzeria with a bread baker’s soul” and you get what they mean as soon as you walk in the door.
They serve up pies with blistered crusts, lightly textured with just enough structure and bite. The real beauty is how much confidence they have to keep the toppings simple and fresh. With dough, sauce and cheese this good you don’t need too much more.
Now with three locations in the city the good news is you are never too far away from one of Big Mario’s slices.
The pies are classic New York-style although they do have a slightly thicker crust which adds a wonderful texture and chew. With ice cold beer, a great wine list and chilled customers enjoying the good vibes you couldn’t ask for much more.
Ballard Pizza Company serve whole pies and fat slices in Old Ballard, Frelard, and T-Mobile Park.
The best bet? Mix and match a few of their toppings and wash it all down with one of their ice cold beers. The portions are big though, so come with an appetite; or if you are feeling lazy the good news is they also deliver.
Southpaw has been open since 2016 and already have a loyal and passionate following.
The name comes from boxing. As they explain, “all things wonderfully unorthodox, like a left-handed boxer’s stance and pizzas that are somewhere in-between Neapolitan and New York style”.
Truly epic pizza that you’ll get hooked on as soon as you have that first bite.
Tutta Bella opened their first store in 2004 and are still going strong making world class pizza 15 years later.
With five stores and two food trucks you have plenty of opportunity to chow down. The real beauty is their open kitchens allow you to see your pizzas being made in front of you. A big treat for kids and grown ups alike.
Their pizzas are super traditional in style and taste absolutely divine.
Windy City Pie is one for those who prefer their pizza served deep dish style. This is about as good as it gets outside of Chicago itself with wonderful authenticity.
Some wonderfully original toppings and specials that will keep you coming back on a regular basis.
Make sure to keep a little room for their wonderful desserts.
