As usual, I’ve grabbed a front-row seat at a pizza joint, this time the heralded Delancey, a casual, friendly spot in Seattle’s trendy Ballard district. I get to watch smoke curling from the brick, wood-fired oven as thin, sparingly adorned pizzas are carefully lifted out with a long-handled paddle. I also get to see passing starters I wish I’d ordered: gorgeous mounds of romaine, red cabbage and shaved-grana salads or small plates of local tomatoes with sheep milk’s feta and preserved Meyer lemons.

But I’ve saved myself for a Zoe’s bacon and onion pie, with fresh and aged mozza and scattered arugula. It’s simple, and simply delicious, with most of the ingredients locally sourced. All the pizzas are reasonably priced, ranging from $12 to $15 for a pie that can easily be shared by two.
