Dinner at Pizzeria Credo


The Finocchiata pizza from Pizzeria Credo in West Seattle. 

If you like Neapolitan pizza (Naples-style pizza) then run, don't walk, to Pizzeria Credo. Their pizza is authentic and made in a wood-fired oven from Italy. As you wait for your food, you can watch them making it, pulling fresh and hot pies right out the oven, and preparing delicious looking salads. They're located in West Seattle on California Ave. Since the West Seattle Bridge is still closed, it takes us about forty minutes to get to West Seattle now. But the drive was worth it as we bit into our pizza. Pizzeria Credo has won many awards over the years, and they were even featured on Guy Fieri's, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives

My husband started with a Manhattan to drink. It came in a pretty big martini glass and was made well. He let me have a couple of sips. We also shared a Passion Fruit Martini. It was on the thicker side and was made with Vodka, Passion Fruit puree, simple syrup, and fresh lime juice. We shared a Credo Salad to start off with. It had organic greens, sliced apples, walnuts, Fontina cheese, and an apple vinaigrette dressing. It was a good-sized salad for sharing and it tasted so fresh. I really liked the sharp Fontina and the thin apple slices. 

We ordered three pies for the four of us. Each pizza was sliced into four big pieces. The pizzas are really thin and aren't super filling, unless you polish off the whole thing. I was able to eat two big pieces and left full and really satisfied. The leftovers the next day were just as tasty. I had the Finocchiata which has sausage, leeks, caramelized onions, mozzarella, and San Marzano tomato sauce. It tasted incredible. The crust was perfect and the toppings went so well together. 

My husband had a Margherita pizza and he was really impressed by the quality of it. Our sons shared a Cinque Formaggi, a five cheese pizza. I tried it and I could have eaten more than a few bites. But I had to stop myself since I already had my own pizza. They get pretty busy for dining in. It seems like mostly locals and regulars go, and a lot of people were picking up pizza to go. We've tried a lot of pizza in Seattle, and this is one of the best!
