For centuries, pizza and pasta battled for the title of Italy’s most beloved dish, an honor that was ultimately bestowed upon Sophia Loren. Cast your vote for the Boot’s best culinary creation with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get a pizza-making experience for two at Café Bengodi. Reservations for a class can be made seven days a week.

Café Bengodi satisfies Italian urges with authentic Neapolitan–style pizzas assembled in adherence to the city’s time-honored traditions. Knowledgeable guides take pairs on a brief exploration of pizza's history, beginning in the 6th century BC, when pizza dough first crawled out of primordial lakes of tomato sauce. Next, freshly edified novices each assemble a 7-inch pie in the Neapolitan style. The experience elucidates various techniques for tossing dough made from special double-zero flour and grants the creative freedom to add a choice of ingredients such as traditional sausage, pepperoni, and smoked salmon.

Seattle's Little Italy

Like the colors of the Italian flag, Seattle's Little Italy features three stripes of Italian cuisine. At Al Boccalino, diners pull up to white linen tablecloths for classic cuisine made from local ingredients. It's also a great place to stop for l'aperitivo, where guests dine on all-you-can-eat olives, ciliegine mozzarella, caprese, and grilled vegetables. Cafe Bengodi, by contrast, specializes in lighter fare—the bouquet of pastas are offset by a selection of sandwiches, risottos, and pizza served on a shaded patio. And at Little Italy's newest eatery, Che Sara Sara, the chefs focus on the cuisine of the Puglia region. It's all a part of owner Luigi DeNunzio's lifelong dream of transporting the flavors of his homeland to the American West Coast.
