Fodor's Expert Review Delancey

$ Ballard Pizza Fodor's Choice

Brandon Pettit spent years developing his thin-but-chewy pizza crust, and the final product has made him a contender for the city's best pies. Pettit himself is occasionally manning the wood-fired oven at this sweetly sophisticated little spot north of downtown Ballard that he owns with partner Molly Wizenberg (author of the popular "Orangette" food blog). Neighborhood families and far-flung travelers alike line up before opening time for seasonal pizzas topped with anything from fresh sausage and local clams to blistered padron peppers and crimini mushrooms. The small wine list is well edited and elegant; desserts are simple but inspired—the homemade chocolate chip cookie with sea salt is delish. Long wait? Pop next door to charming Essex, the couple's artisanal cocktail bar.
