New Seasonals: Celebrating Local Ingredients, Big Flavors

The Bacon Leek Pizza.

Since opening in 1979, premium toppings have been a cornerstone of Pagliacci Pizza. Local products are our favorite. We scour the Pacific Northwest to find some of the finest ingredients available anywhere. In addition, buying locally boosts the regional economy, creates jobs, and reduces fuel consumption. 

This month, we are celebrating Beecher's Handmade Cheese, located in Pike Place Market, with our Bacon Leek seasonal pizza. Beecher's Flagship is a nationally renowned, award-winning sharp cheddar cheese with a subtle sweetness, a velvety texture, and an assertive flavor that melts beautifully, perfect for pizza. Our Bacon Leek pizza also features crisp bacon, roasted leeks, mozzarella, and fresh arugula with a peppery kick. 

Cheesemonger Kurt Beecher Dammeier, the founder of Beecher’s, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, saying, “I love local collaborations like this. Pagliacci is one of those iconic Seattle pizza brands I've been enjoying for decades, and as a customer, I am particularly proud. Both Beecher's and Pagliacci are known for big flavors, so combining Beecher's award-winning cheese with Pagliacci's award-winning pizza is an obvious match for deliciousness.” 

Although we prioritize using locally sourced products, we occasionally make exceptions. Our seasonal BBQ Chicken Primo pays homage to New Mexican cuisine, inspired by John Clifford, our Senior Director of Training and Development, who grew up in New Mexico. Hatch chiles, the defining ingredient of New Mexican cuisine, lend their smoky flavor and medium spice to this pizza, which also features chicken, pickled red onions, mozzarella, and barbecue sauce. We finish the pie with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro. 

For dessert, our seasonal gelato, made by Gelatiamo, is a sophisticated take on the creamsicles of our childhood. The Orange Cream Gelato is the ice-cream truck favorite oriented to your adult tastebuds. Think sweet citrus notes, creamy vanilla ice cream, and silky texture. Get a pint (or two) while supplies still last. 

We also have a new seasonal beer: Bickersons Brewhouse Mexican Lager! This light, crisp and refreshing lager boasts notes of fresh lime zest. We bring this limited release beer to you from Bickersons Brewhouse, a local brewery that touts the motto "Just Really Good Beer." Try a 4-pack with your order!
