Serious Pie Seattle.

Serious Pie My MIL and I went to Tom Douglas's Pizza place Serious Pie, in Seattle during her visit. We were there during 'happy hour' from 3-5 (I think!) and a 1/2 sized pizza was $5. We sampled what I have highlighted in bold. It was really really good! The crust was the typical wood fired oven crispy with air pockets. However, the dough seemed to have a fair amount of cornmeal in it which loosened up the gluten in the crust and gave it a very easy 'bite through'.

The house made duck prosciutto was truly amazing! The texture was identical to Jamon and the flavor was all duck. This was a real treat! We also had a salad that was on special that has roasted baby beets and turnip and snap peas.
I wish I'd written down all of the ingredients because I'd love to try and replicate it. The peas tasted of anise or fennel. which was a really nice summer combo that I am going to use myself!
Starter Menu
baby lettuces, radish, muscatel vinaigrette 8
duck proscuitto, pickled apricot, arugula 9
asparagus, anchovy, pecorino salvatore 7
fava beans, local radishes, miner's lettuce 8
artichokes, proscuitto, baked egg 9
house lomo, arbequina olive oil 8

Again the pizza in bold are the ones we tried. The concierge at Nordstroms recommended the potato pizza and just as she said it was really wonderful. A simple rustic no brainer if you think back to the basic economics of Italy when pizza evolved.
I was really excited to try both the egg and the clam pizza's because I had just watched Jamie At Home ant the pizza episode a few days prior. I was not a letdown and I will say it's a tie between these two combinations for the best artisan pizza ever!
