You’d expect no less than pizza greatness from Seattle star chef and James Beard Award winner Tom Douglas, and at his three Serious Pie spots in Seattle (VirginiaWestlakePike) that’s exactly what you get. These are thin-crust, oblong pizzas about a foot long and imbued with serious soul (there are also huge corniciones).

Consider the pizza mission statement that greets you when visiting their website: “Serious Pie: a pizzeria with a bread baker's soul, serves up pies with blistered crusts, light textured but with just enough structure and bite. Our attentiveness to each pizza in the 600°F stone-encased applewood burning oven preserves the character of housemade charcuterie and artisan cheeses from around the world.”

The menu features seven pies with toppings like Yukon gold potato, soft-cooked free-range eggs, smoked prosciutto, truffle cheese, snap peas, StraCapra (a washed-rind semi-soft goat cheese), and clams, but you’ll want to try the sweet fennel sausage, roasted pepper, and provolone pie that was voted one of the top 50 pizzas in the country this year.

  • The blistered, slightly salty crusted pizzas are perfectly fired and come with a thoughtful list of salads and sides. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Order the roasted chantrelles+truffle cheese pizza. Brace yourself for multiple foodgasms :)
  • Tom Douglas Serious Pie for serious pizza. Fabulous service and food. Super fun and casual. -Rick Tramonto, Top Chef
  • Best pizza pie in Seattle!
  • The happy hour $5 mini pizzas are affordable enough that you can sample quite a few even all eight if you bring a few friends. We love the venison sausage with onion topping. Happy hour 3-5
  • No matter how we sliced it, these pies were knockouts: Seduced with a foraged-mushroom truffle pizza. Smoky crust with chanterelles, black trumpet mushrooms and an intoxicating truffle-scented cheese.
  • The golden chanterelle and crimini mushroom with truffle cheese pizza is a decadent vegetarian dish!
  • Great pizza. Great service. Happy hour 3-5. If you are having a late lunch wait until 3 to order the half sized pizza for $6
  • Kale salad to die for and the mushroom truffle pizza so amazing. Split both between two with a bottle of Tuscany Montepulciano for the perfect meal.
  • Tom Douglas is at his best in these casual joints that let his trademark creativity flourish. His pie crust is a masterpiece, his toppings brilliantly combined. All within two cozy, communal spots.
  • Happy hour from 3-5 Monday thru Friday! Half sized pizza for $6 each!!!
  • Never thought that i'd like a potato pizza but i guess you can't go wrong with anything at Serious Pie. One of the best pizza places i have ever been too. Worth the long wait.
  • Get the mushroom with truffle cheese. You won't be sorry.
  • Try the fennel sausage and pepper pie or, if you're feeling less traditional, the chanterelle & truffle cheese pie.
  • Tyler Florence knows what's up! You have to get the chantrelle mushrooms and truffle cheese pizza. If you don't find a college that offers the right fit, this pizza will!
  • Amazing pies.. Try the chantrelle and truffle cheese with a delicious maritime on tap. The seasonal Italian sodas are great too
  • Happy hour, 3-5pm. $5 mini pizza pies, $5 glass of wine, $3 pint of beer. Good way to sample a variety of pies.
  • Get there very early. There will be a wait. Give them your cell # and walk down the block to the Hotel Andra and have a drink in the lobby until your table is ready.
  • Had the fennel sausage, buffalo cheese, and seasoned mushroom pizzas with some friends. All great pizzas!!!
  • Every person in Seattle told me I needed to eat here. I was alone and, well, I found out I can eat an entire pizza by myself. Egg and prosciutto all the way! Take it to go and pick up Rachel's Ginger!
