Seattle hasn’t always been a great pizza city, but in the last few years, local pizzaiolos have been baking perfectly crafted pies from diverse pizza traditions, taking the scene to the next level. During the pandemic, pizza pop-ups flourished, and reliable (but historically unexceptional) standbys like Post Alley Pizza improved recipes to serve doughs with complex flavors and higher-quality toppings. Now, local shops offer pizza in countless styles, from thin-crust pizza with naturally leavened dough to delightfully greasy New York-style slices to Detroit-style square pies layered with creative toppings, and more, with some of the standouts listed here.
(Though there is a robust pizza pop-up scene, this list sticks to fixed locations.)
