It is safe to say pizza is always on our mind, so celebrating National Pepperoni Pizza Day on Sept. 20 is certainly on our priority list. Just in time for the tasty holiday, here are seven Washington state restaurants for creme de la creme ‘za.
A Seattle favorite for the ultimate culinary combo–pizza and beer–Zeek’s Pizza even has a pizza dedicated to pepperoni. The Ultimate Pepperoni spotlights one and half times the meat and provolone!
Ballard Pizza Company in Seattle specializes in New York-style pizza crafted with quality Northwest ingredients. The BPC Pepperoni is so beloved, it bears the restaurant’s name. Head to Ballard’s awesome patio, and pair your ‘za with a frozen cocktail, a bottle of wine or one of the many local beers available on draft.
“A pizzeria for a bread baker’s soul,” Serious Pie has locations in both Ballard and Downtown Seattle. The bubble-crusted pizza is cooked up in a 600-degree stone-encased apple wood-burning oven to give each slice a blistered appearance and light texture. And pepperoni can be added to any pizza in the Serious Pie lineup for $3.
Spark Pizza is casual eatery in Redmond with top-notch food, beer, wine and cocktails on tap, as well as comfortable open-air seating. The Honey and Spice and Everything Nice is considered a Spark “legend” pizza, decked with pepperoni cups, basil, mozzarella and, the kicker, spicy honey.

Woodinville’s The Pizza Coop & Ale House is known for its exceptional Detroit-style pizza that is crafted using locally sourced ingredients. The family-owned and -operated establishment even offers a pillowy Cooper-style pizza, which is a Sicilian deep-dish Detroit style that is light and fluffy on the inside and has a buttery cheese crust.
A celebrated family-friendly Italian eatery in Woodinville, Vivi Pizzeria offers incredible pasta and seafood dishes outside of its selection of top-notch pizza (with several options devoted to pepperoni). End your pizza repast with the house-made limoncello for a true treat.
Tutta Bella has several locations throughout Washington state, each with an impressive lineup of salads, pastas and red or white pizzas. The Ezzo Pepperoni is a delectable combo of tomato sauce, artisanal pepperoni, mozzarella and provola and begs to be paired with a house Negroni or lemon drop.
