“What the Fearless Critic books and apps have that UrbanSpoon and Yelp don’t is a complete lack of bullshit.”
“I’ve spent years driving around with Zagat...but I think I’ll replace it with this Fearless Critic guide.”

Veraci Pizza
Neapolitan slices from applewood-fired ovens—nothing wrong with that

Veraci offers a rarity: Neapolitan-style pizza by the slice. (Most Seattle pizza joints pick one side of the fence or the other: full Neapolitan pies or sloppy standard slices.)

The crust is ultra-thin, perhaps thinner than the real Naples style, with minimum char but a nice smoky flavor. The classic three-cheese and margherita pizzas really let the crust and slightly spicy sauce shine, but Veraci also offers some solid toppings. Seasonal vegetables (zucchini, yellow squash, and spinach, for example) often find their way into the mix, as do piles of cured meats and sausages from CasCoppio Brothers, a local Ballard company.

The space used to be occupied by a Domino’s Pizza, so the folks at Veraci didn’t have a good starting point as far as décor or ambience. Still, they’ve managed to make the family-friendly space comfortable, if a bit small. We prefer take-out, or checking the website to track down Veraci at local farmers’ markets, where they bust out a wood-fired oven on wheels.
