Fancy pizza is having a moment in Tacoma: there are new shops like Apizza and Italy Paola Pizza Napoletana, but the best of the bunch just might be Tacoma Pie. The pizza here is intense: one slice of the thick, square, Detroit-style pies could be a full meal. The crust is fluffy, the frico is tall, and the sauce has a spicy kick. You can get it delivered, but it’s way more fun to dine in with the pinball machines and a breezy outdoor space with a bocce court. If you see their banana bread pudding in the pizza warmer, get it.
