Ballard Pizza Company is the newest outpost of the Ethan Stowell empire, serving NYC style pies and slices. While it is a more pedestrian price point than his other spots, it is with the same care in food prep and ingredients choice. On a recent stroll to Old Ballard from work one day, I decided to pop in and take advantage of “Flour Hour” (a steal at $2 a slice, 3-5p & 10-11p M-Th). Slices are normally $3-3.50 which isn’t bad either, especially given that one slice is big enough for a lot of folks. I tried the special that day which was ricotta, spring onion and kale – a spot-on trio that made me happy. While the focus is on the pies, there are a few salads, starters and desserts along with a few choice libations to wash it down. Open late too, this straightforward spot with a friendly staff is a good go-to in the neighborhood!
