Delancey was born of necessity - a need for New York and New Jersey-esque pizza that Seattle missed. The recipe for the dough was played, improved and refined two years before the restaurant opened. It involves a two-day fermentation process that makes the end product thin but strong and pliable under the weight of its toppings. From the decor to the ingredients lies the same theme of simple but first class.

Pagliacci, Italian for "clowns", was opened on Ave in 1979 by an Italian family. It was about making good pizza; They didn't even get a sign for their restaurant for over a year. Since then, the pizzeria has grown into a delivery restaurant chain with 19 locations in Seattle. A note for anyone who speaks Italian: Seattleites kill pronunciation like Americans do. So the Italian pah-yli-ah-chee (where y is pronounced in "you") becomes pah-glee-ah-chee.
