On Friday night Andrew and I set out on our first best quest adventure, working on the pizza challenge. We headed into downtown Seattle, where we debated where to start. While we know we want to do Serious Pie, we were feeling adventurous and thus decided to head somewhere new. I had recently read a Seattle Met article about Tutta Bella having competed in the Pizza Olympics in Naples this past summer, so knew they were legit. They’re also Zagat rated pretty high, so we figured we would give ’em a go.
Andrew, my Best Quest co-pilot, and I agonized over where to start our journey to find amazing food in Seattle. After much debate, we decided to start with a classic.
The Challenge: Find the best pizza in the Seattle area
The Criteria (in order of importance):
- Sides (quality of breadsticks, salads, etc.)
- Variety offered
- Originality of pizzas
*Andrew and I couldn’t agree on which was more important: toppings or sauce. I argue that a pizza can be great even without sauce if it has good toppings, and that even mediocre sauce can be covered by great toppings. Andrew disagrees, and argues that a bad sauce can really ruin a pizza. What do you think? Should toppings or sauce rate higher in importance in our criteria?
UPDATE: Currently, sauce is winning. Add your vote
