Best Pizzas In Kirkland And Bothell
Sure, you can get pizza from “the hut” anytime, but why not make this weekend a special occasion and try something new. Here are four very different Italian restaurants that serve pizza made in totally different ways. One is sure to please your tastebuds.
Sparta’s features 37 different pizzas to choose from including The Greek (Fresh garlic, sliced tomatoes, onions, feta cheese, artichoke hearts, pesto and pizza sauce) and Sparta’s Special (Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Salami, Mushrooms, Green Peppers, Olives and Onions) and most are served deep dish style with Danish mozzarella cheese. However, if you don’t like their combinations, you can always create your own and if you are just stubborn enough, you can order your own 7” pizza for just $6 which is still plenty for one person. (Additional toppings are .90 extra each)
