Ballard area pizza delivery

Responding to another thread, I realized that I had a question that I've given up on: Pizza delivery in Ballard. We've tried a bunch of the places in the 6+ years that we've lived in the area, but nothing has stuck out as a go to. I know that there is a Pagliaci's that is close, but I've never been a fan of $25 pizzas. When we lived in the Wedgewood/Maple area, we were big fans of Jet City's beer batter pan. At this point, we will occasionally pick up from Veraci, but that style of pizza steams in the box and loses its crunch (and thus it's soul). Any thoughts?

  1. Quite right that the Veraci style doesn't travel well, but we got delivery of a cheesesteak pizza from Stacia's a couple years ago that was quite good. It was more of the Pagliacci style - chewy, tastes like caramelized wheat... Check their website for coupons.

    1. Have you tried Snoose Junction or Soprano's? You're probably too young to remember Andre's.

        Andre's! When it was in the little brick building...where is he now?

          The last time I saw Andre, earlier this year, he was working in meat dept of the Roosevelt Whole Foods. I have known him since he had the little brick pizza place in Ballard. I have always enjoyed conversation with him. He enjoys Seattles cool cloudy weather after his stint in the French Foreign Legion when he was young.

            Ah, I can still taste Andre's "extra garlic" sauce (and it's probably still on my breath)!

              Now that I think about it, wasn't he actually in Greenlake before Ballard? The memory of garlic and pepperoni pizza brought it back!

                Hi, tsquare:

                I dunno about Greenlake, but Andre was in two locations in Ballard: the "little brick place" not far from Swedish, and then next door to what is now a Tully's. Good, honest pizza, that was.

                  Tully's is gone, but the location he was in is Sam's Sushi. But I don't think Andre delivered.

                    True, he did not. But I would drive the 1/2 hour it would take me to have his pizza again. At the time, I worked down the street (from the little brick building) and working dinners were made bearable by those pizzas. Lunch too, when he felt like being open for us.

        2. I've ordered from Palermo's, and their crust holds up pretty well.
