New “artisan pizza’ restaurant opens in my small town

Haven’t been so I can’t comment on the taste but the pictures look comically bad. This looks like unmalted flour with no browning agents baked under 600 degrees to me. $12!! The basil garnish is so ugly too.

Who posted the picture? Can't be the restaurant themselves I assume.

Seattle is a horrible pizza town IMO.  The sad state of pizza in Seattle is actually what caused me to learn to make it.  I figured that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.
Also - anytime you hear the words 'gourmet' or 'artisan' with regard to pizza, you are probably well served to turn the other way and run.
Is this place in Snohomish, by chance?  That is the location of the worst pizza I ever had.

I said to my little one, "come here so I can change you".
He said "change only comes from within".  :-/

In the past I used to spend a few days a week in Seattle at the SCAA Specialty coffee conference and I ate dinner most nights at  Little Marias pizza in downtown, https://www.facebook.com/LittleMariasPizza/ . Walking distance from the convention center and 2 blocks from my hotel. I wish I could say it was great pizza, but I don't remember, but a slice and a big salad was pretty reasonable and plenty good enough to keep me going back year after year. Great vibe, full bar, a bit loud on the Drag Race viewing nights, not a place for uptight people, but always served me well.

Yelp review. Ever pie looks ghost white.

About 2 hours north right on the Canadian border. Little town called Blaine.

They just opened in the midst of a pandemic, cut them some slack and order a well done pizza. Give them a heads upon the crust coloration.

100%. Same here. Not only is it bad, but it's more expensive on average than any major metro I've lived in. Closest thing to NY slice I could find was Talurico's in West Seattle and it was solid, but that was 10 years ago (before I moved to PNW permanently). I get the feeling they've gone downhill since based on photos. Tuscan Stone Pizza on the east side is also not terrible.

So I decided to make my own at home - and I'm glad I did. Now I can fulfill my NJ/NYC pizza nostalgia whenever I want, the way I want.

Even Minneapolis had multiple decent pizza options. But Seattle area is just yikes. I ain't payin' $30(!!!) for a large pepperoni from a pizza chain (Zeeks). That's just robbery. I'm not trying to hate on Seattle - it's great for sushi/Asian and some other cuisines. Pros and cons to every region.

Yikes!  Was that made by a clown with excess makeup on his hands?
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.
