The British Invasion would have never taken place had Lennon and Sgt. Pepper not come to an eleventh-hour compromise over which toppings would adorn their victory pizza. Reenact the savory outcome of this historic agreement with today's deal: for $10, you get $25 worth of thin-crust pizza and brews from Proletariat Pizza in White Center. Proletariat Pizza is open from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. This deal is not valid for takeout or delivery.
Housed in a former bakery, this husband-and-wife pizza palace invites diners to kick back while the pies crisp and the staff zigzags around the room like a fleet of choreographed Roombas. Each circle of dough is hand mixed and flattened into a thin, flakey, fitting throne for each fresh topping. Creations are 18 inches in diameter and range from classic to creative like the ham and egg pie with prosciutto, soft yolks, mozzarella, and homemade tomato sauce ($18). The aptly named vegetarian combines sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, and goat cheese ($18) for a meatless masterpiece. The Favorite is rumored to cure cooties with its toothsome Italian sausage, fragrant garlic, and Mama Lil's hot peppers ($18).
Homemade tiramisu heavy on mascarpone cream ($5) and a Gorgonzola-smothered mixed-green salad ($4) bookend the pizza-centric menu. Tall pints and frosty brews are served alongside the fresh eats, furthering the social atmosphere inside Proletariat. The welcoming confines are equally friendly to large families, small families, and probable families still awaiting confirmation on Facebook.
The Seattle Times praised Proletariat for its hand-kneaded crust, "deliciously thin [sic] the center yet soft and pillowy at the edges," and suggested that you get there quick, because its bound to get popular.
- This place rocks. Thank you for coming to White Center. We've been waiting for just about forever for a decent pizza joint in our neighborhood. The food here is awesome. The beer selection couldn't get any better and the service is easy-going and friendly. – robin s., Yelp
- I've put an awful lot of things in my mouth over the years but the ham and egg pizza has to be somewhere in my all time top 10 list. Proscuito, several soft cooked egg and cheese, and man is it good. –Jeff g., Yelp
- This is our new regular place. The layout of the restaurant is awesome. Two huge tables right in the window, then a row of bench tables along the wall. The minimal layout yields a lot of blank floorspace for kids. It's a fun place where it feels like you know everyone even though you're just there with your family. – James R., Yelp
