As a younger, cuter Macaulay Culkin once showed us, ordering pizza delivery is a good way to make a night-in feel special. Since most nights (if not all) are nights in at the moment, getting some excellent pizza helps break up the monotony, and supports local restaurants at the same time. Below, you’ll find a list of great options all over Seattle, and all of them offer online ordering.
For more ways to support the restaurant industry right now, you can find some ideas and resources here.
This New Jersey-inspired pizzeria on Capitol Hill serves our favorite pies in town, so getting some delivered to your front door is like having your own personal pizza stork. They sell round and square pies, so what you choose depends on if you want your crust thin, crispy, and foldable, or thick, crusty, and covered with caramelized cheese edges (we prefer the square). Toppings range from spicy salami and charred onion to a white pie with ricotta and garlic.
Windy City Pie is our first choice in Seattle for Chicago-style deep dish. Their pies have the structural integrity of birthday cake, travel and reheat well even if you store the leftovers in your freezer, and come with toppings you won’t see anywhere else in town, like candied bacon and giardiniera (we recommend both).
Breezy Town Pizza on Beacon Hill is from the same team as Windy City Pie, and their Wisconsin brick cheese-covered pizzas are just as terrific. The main difference is that the crust is a little bit thinner, and it’s more of a pan-style pizza opposed to deep dish. Also, if you’re avoiding meat and dairy, they have a vegan pie with meatless sausage and lots of vegetables.
South Town serves some of our favorite New York-style pies with topping combinations ranging from classic cheese and basil to wild boar ragu, fried sage, and Funyuns. The stranger the pizzas sound, the better they are - particularly the pastrami pie with caramelized onions, pickles, an everything-bagel-spiced crust, and creamy gruyère fondue.
Rocco’s is a good option for delivery pizza if you live in or near Belltown. It’s a cocktail bar that also happens to serve a wide variety of New York-style pies, from classic pepperoni to “banh mi” (with pulled pork, sriracha, and hoisin sauce, among other things). Our favorite is the lasagna pizza, covered in sausage and dollops of creamy ricotta.
All of Mioposto wood-fired pizzas are great, but their brunch pie is the standout. Topped with spicy Calabrian chile sauce, pancetta, runny eggs, and crunchy breadcrumbs, this pizza is proof that you can have a pizza party delivered to you in the morning. Beyond that, they have a ton of options, from clam pizza to one with salami and honey, and have locations all across the city - in Ravenna, Mt. Baker, West Seattle, and Mercer Island.
Princi is a bakery chain from Italy that’s located inside the Starbucks Reserve Roastery. The square-shaped focaccia pizzas here are great, whether you go for a margherita or a potato-and-pancetta-topped pie. Delivery-wise, you can order slices on their own or an entire pizza, but just know that the full sizes cost upwards of $70 since they serve ten people.
This sister spot to Ma’Ono Fried Chicken is open for delivery and takeout orders for New York and Detroit-style pies, with toppings ranging from spaghetti and meatballs to Portuguese sausage and pineapple. If you love ranch, we recommend adding a few cups on the side to dip your pizza crust in. Their University District location is temporarily closed.
We’ll admit that a pizza topped with pepperoni and mac and cheese sounds maybe like something a toddler would eat, but trust us when we say that it’s our favorite pie at Petoskey’s, a great pizzeria in Fremont. And after a brief hiatus this past spring, they’re open again and offer delivery. Make sure to also add an order of fried Wisconsin cheese curds.
When you’re dealing with thin Neapolitan pies fresh from a searing oven, cutting it into slices can prove to make the middle soggy and messy. Cinque Terre, a great pizza spot in South Lake Union, handles this issue by refusing to slice up their takeout pies. That way, the bottom stays crisp and dry. To maximize on this, we recommend a pie with not too many toppings, like a classic margherita.
Lupo’s chewy and fermented Neapolitan pizzas travel well in transit, particularly their cacio e pepe pie. With an olive oil base and a ton of cracked black pepper and pecorino romano, it also tastes excellent if you add on crispy cubes of pancetta.
Mercato Stellina’s pies are less like pizzas and more like elegant flatbreads topped with cheese and sauce, but they still count to us. Order from here if you’re having a date with your live-in significant other and want to supplement a couple of these smaller, oval pies with tasty appetizers like castelvetrano olives and marcona almonds or burrata with honeycomb and crostini.
Pizzaiolo is an excellent pizzeria on the Eastside to keep in mind. They serve a variety of Neapolitan pies, from a classic margherita to one with pear, gorgonzola, walnuts, and balsamic. But unlike a lot of Neapolitan spots, they also make family-sized pies that are a bit larger than you’re used to. Your only challenge is to make sure everyone agrees on what to order.
The thick Roman-style pizzas are the best thing about Willmott’s Ghost, and what you order depends on how lazy you feel. You could opt to have your pie fully cooked, from a margherita topped with cold mozzarella to a potato pizza with fresno chile, thyme, and feta. Or, order a kit, which comes with a par-baked crust and all the toppings you need to assemble a fresh Hawiian, sausage, or pepperoni pizza by yourself. It’s $5 cheaper for the kits, so if you’re feeling like you want to put something in the oven, go for it. Just don’t forget an order (or three) of their insanely good olive oil cake for dessert.
Central Pizza’s cheese pie is straightforward, downright delicious - perfect if you just want a reliably good pizza. The slices are even better leftover, too, so don’t feel bad about ordering a whole pie for yourself.
Queen Margherita is more than just the alter-ego you’ve given yourself after eating pizza on the sofa with a blanket draped over your shoulders like a cape. It’s also a terrific Neapolitan pizzeria in Magnolia. They have the usual suspects, like pies with arugula and prosciutto or tomato and buffalo mozzarella, but also a few fun ones with toppings like smoked mozzarella, chorizo, and soft eggs, or spicy coppa, thyme, and lemon zest.
Sometimes, your heart wants pizza, but your body wants fresh produce from a local garden. If you order delivery from Humble Pie, you can get both. They grow most of the vegetables that top their tasty pizzas in their own garden. And those eggs on the prosciutto and arugula pie? Those come from the chicken coop on the patio. Our favorite thing to get here is the “whole hog” (with three different types of pork), but you also can’t go wrong with a margherita or a pizza with Beecher’s, sliced apple, and walnuts if you want a cheese plate on top of bread instead of with some bread.
Maybe instead of pizza, you’d actually just prefer a calzone. Nine Pies makes really good calzones, with a crust that’s dry and chewy (in a good way) and loaded with plenty of ricotta and cured meats. We also recommend adding an order of pesto breadsticks for the cannellini bean dip that comes with it. And because the pesto breadsticks themselves are pretty great, too.
The square pepperoni pie is something that pretty much everybody loves, and Slice Box in SoDo makes a phenomenal one. Their other pizzas are great, too, with enough customization to put Animal Crossing to shame (you can even add sunflower seeds on your pie), but make no mistake - the square pepperoni is king.
Bambino’s bakes all of their pizzas well-done by default, giving each pie a dark crust. We’re a fan of their margherita for the way that the creamy mozzarella swirls with the tomato, making a pink sauce underneath.
Veraci is a popular pizza sold for lunch at farmer’s markets, but they offer delivery from their permanent locations in Ballard and Wedgewood. We’ll never understand how their smoky, cracker-thin crust holds up to toppings like Beecher’s cheese, fresh mozzarella, and ancho-cinnamon salami, but luckily we don’t have to. Veraci’s pies are like the potato chip of the Seattle pizza scene - they’re so light and flat that it’s very easy to eat a lot of them.
Pizzeria Pulcinella is a Neapolitan pizzeria in Rainier Beach, and if you ask them to bake your pizzas for an extra minute, you’re in for a delicious pie. Order the Diavola, which is a pepperoni/tomato/ricotta/basil-topped pizza that’s covered in spicy chile oil.
