2. Delancey 1415 NW 70th St, Seattle, WA 98117

It’s no wonder Delancey has some passionate fans—this Ballard pizzeria is home to some of Seattle’s best tasting (and looking) pizzas. The wood-fired pies come with toppings ranging from the traditional, high quality (think Zoe’s pepperoni), to the quirky and seasonal (think Padrón peppers). Pro tip: follow this bacon-y and onion-y pie with some of the D’s bourbon-roasted peaches. It also has the cookie to end all cookies: a soft bittersweet chocolate chip cookie made with gray salt.

5. World Pizza 672 S King St, Seattle, WA 98104

Fifteen years after closing their Belltown original, the brothers behind this golden-era-of-Grunge destination have reinvented it as a vegetarian-only slice-house in Chinatown. Chow down on vegan pepperoni pies inside the vintage-era digs. With seats for 20, and some well-placed nods to the old space, including some of their original vintage signage, this hip destination scores both on the aesthetic and culinary front.

There aren't many places in Seattle where you can slug an Olde English 40 and bask in the glory of true New York-style pizza, but Big Mario's is one of them. Located in Capitol Hill, this is one of the best spots for quality, thin-crust pie. Hipsters flock to Mario's for its retro style and late-night deals.

The tiny, eclectically-furnished space is cozy and quirky.
