Serious Pie

After a disappointing pizza experience at a highly recommended local favorite, we were starting to worry about when we'd have good pizza again. Having had good experiences at Lola and Palace Kitchen, I suggested a third Tom Douglas restaurant: Serious Pie. We are thrilled to report that it's now one of our favorite thin crust pizzas!

The menu is small with a concentration on seasonal ingredients, but the reduced list of choices certainly didn't make it any easier to choose! Based on our server's recommendation, we started with the pork belly, apricot mostarda, arugula, and pistachios. The pork belly was expertly prepared - crisp on the outside and tender porky flavor on the inside.

Since we couldn't narrow it down to one pizza, we ordered two: roasted corn, walla walla onions, ricotta, and summer herbs; sweet fennel sausage, roasted peppers and provolone. The roasted corn pizza was fully loaded with ingredients and taste. The ricotta was rich and creamy on the crisp pizza crust. The sauce on the sausage pizza had that recognizable sweetness of san marzano tomatoes.

On a previous dinner at Palace Kitchen, I opted not to get their signature coconut cream pie. Fortunately, it was on the menu at Serious Pie, which made dessert a no-brainer even though we were full! 


  1. Wow. Having coconut pie fantasies now. Looks amazing.

  2. Drooling over the pictures - especially dessert! Hope you guys are well.
