Seattle >Serious Pie
This pint sized pizza joint is part of the Tom Douglas empire and I contend one of his better restaurants even though you can dine here for a fraction of the price of a meal at Dahlia. Fresh and delightful pizzas, salads and a cold beer are the reason to visit.
Go-to greens (this salad is a crowd favorite!): Marinated lacinato kale, chillies, pine nuts.
Thanks, Tom, for the Serious Pie.
This place is wonderful. It's cozy and friendly. So, if you aren't cozy and friendly, stay the heck out of it. The communal tables let you meet your neighbors and have a great time. If you are friendly, go there. If you are not, stay away so I don't have to sit by you.
Oh yeah...the pizza is totally great. It's not exactly what you'd expect, but if you wanted plain pizza, just go to pizza hut. Here, you get great pizza, different ideas, cozy environment, and an overall good time.
The pizza dough needs more salt. I am a big fan of TD but this Serious Pie pizza was good but not great. The dough that is so good at his bakery is not that good on the pizza. It has no flavor and needs more salt. My wife and I went to the restaurant and enjoyed our "pizzas" (more like flat bread sandwiches) but were left thinking that it could have been better especially at the prices charged. We will go back, but they need to add more taste to the crust.
Seriously Yummy. Great pizza, had us trying to figure out if we could build a brick oven in the back yard. Had mushroom and truffle cheese pizza, rhubarb with meyer lemon for dessert. Great service. Only - wish I could have had a Coke. Izzy doesn't cut it with pizza. Dinner time, I'd have wine, but lunch...
awesome pies. We were greeted promptly and cordially. We only waited 2 minutes to be seated.There was communal dining which was wierd at first but then it was fun.be sure to sit on the end,theres little wiggle room.skip the fishy celery saladand go for the pizza.the mushroom truffle cheese was heavenly mikes summary:awesome!lite,crisp,popcorn like crust. No condiments are presenton the table.we will definitly try more SERIOUS PIE in the future.The service was fantastic. The bathrooms was cool . Fun and great pizza . THE PEAZZAEATERS
Seriously Good. Tom Douglas, my hero. If you have been to any one of his restaurants, you won't be surprised by the amazing place that Serious Pie is. Good pizza, good people, good ambiance. The price wasn't bad, the pizza was fabulous. I will go back again and again.
Darn you Tom...you got me again.. Tom Douglas is like that frustrating boyfriend who you KNOW is bad for you, but you just can't stay away from. Like his other places (I'm a fan) Serious Pie will not give you exactly what you expect, but an open mind and an adventurous palette will be greatly rewarded. You can't get pizza by the slice. You can't get pizza with any traditional toppings that you might be used to. There are only a few selections, and they only come in one size. But MAN OH MAN are they good!!! I have now tried every pizza on the menu more than once (no, I'm not over 300 pounds--yet) and I promise you that even the ones with ingredients you've never heard of in combinations not found in nature are absolutely delicious. (The "green eggs and ham" is my favorite though.) The service has been consistently great. The non-pizza items on the menu did nothing for me. Everything is just a wee bit overpriced, but oh baby is the pizza worth it. Darn you Tom. Darn you, I say.
A welcome addition to the local pizza scene.. I'll admit that I'm an East Coaster who always complains about the lack of decent pizza in Seattle and even after two visits to this place I am still complaining...but I love Serious Pie! It's more of an artisan flatbread than a pizza but it's still fantastic. The crust is thin and the toppings are inventive but not scary. The traditional tomato and basil pie is great but the specials are really outstanding. I would never consider some of the toppings to be acceptable pizza toppings but Tom Douglas makes them work together and they are delicious. The house Chianti is great, too. On my first visit, everything was perfect. On the second, they were out of the house Chianti, the salad was way too salty and the waitress terrible - boring and unapologetic, not to mention uninformed about the menu. The pizza was so good that I will give it another try, though.
Seriously...Okay pizza.. I really was looking fwd to Tom Douglas's latest but it was just okay. I thought that the fennel sausage pizza that I selected was okay but overly charred underneath and overpriced. The place is almost take-out casual. I'd try them again but maybe get the pizzas to go. Skip the desserts here and go next door to the Dahlia Bakery (also Tom Douglas owned) and get the coconut cream pie. It's a local favorite.
Good, not great, Pizza. I went with some friends to Serious Pie a few weeks ago. he biggest problem I had was with the pizza crust ? they?re using cheap flour, flavorless yeast, and they?re not letting the dough sit long enough. The taste and texture was consistent with regular old all purpose flour, fast-acting yeast, and a two hour rise time with a punch-down half way through. I thought the toppings were decently tasty but the crust really ruined the whole pie for me. We had a rosemary and new potato pizza and a less-good butternut squash pizza. Great wine selection, but I think that?s because my friend is great at pairing wines and picked out just the right thing to go with what we?d ordered. We tried the cannoli, honey ice cream, and fruit pie for desert. Again, all were good, just not great. Which would be fine if Serious Pie didn't charge "great" prices.
Seattle foodies salivate for Tom Douglas' wood-fired pizzas, loaded with gourmet toppings..
This comfortable space keeps things cozy by only offering a limited number of shared wooden tables for patrons lucky enough to snag a seat. Diners can watch the inner workings of the Dahlia Bakery through a wall of glass or observe chefs prepare their pizzas in the open kitchen. The exposed wood beam ceiling and wrought-iron candle chandeliers cast a romantic glow over the entire scene.
The oblong, eight-slice pizzas come loaded with gourmet toppings--one featuring a perfect blend of barely spicy cherry bomb peppers and house-made sweet fennel sausage is a favorite, while the traditional house mozzarella and cheese variety satisfies. The crust is thin, chewy and, at times, tastes almost sweet. Starters and desserts change depending on what's in season but are suitably light; most diners order a large green salad, which comes in a large bowl perfect for sharing.
