If you have no obligations for the rest of the day, you should probably take a drive along the lake to get a margherita pizza with no shortage of chili oil. For a big step above a heat lamp-warmed slice, head south to Pizzeria Pulcinella, a little neighborhood spot in Rainier Beach that serves excellent Neapolitan pizzas and baked pasta dishes. You should also grab some spumoni ice cream for the ride home.
