Only in Washington: Brooklyn's Pizzeria

Posted: Updated:

ELLENSBURG, WA - Four area restaurants made onlyinyourstate.com's list of "12 Unsuspecting Restaurants In Washington With Food So Good It Should Be Illegal".

Brooklyn's Pizzeria in Ellensburg made the top of that list, and reporter Veronica Padilla had the very "tough" assignment of tasting what makes their pizzas so special.

If you blink while driving down University Way in Ellensburg, you might miss the tastiest pizza in town.

"We just try and make the best pizza here, and honestly the ingredients for me is what sets us apart," said Chad Fuller, Brooklyn's Pizzeria Assistant Manager.

Brooklyn's Pizzeria is tucked in the corner of "The Copy Shop Plaza", across the street from Central Washington University. Passion is what goes into these pizzas. The dough is made in-house, and so is the marinara sauce. The pizzas are cooked to perfection in stone fired ovens.

And then...there's a personal touch: a customized note goes inside every delivery box.

And the coolest part? Pizza delivery is FREE.

"I think it's that level of love that we put into the pizza that it translates to our customers," Fuller said, "and they kind of understand that we love making pizza and we love seeing them eat good pizza."

Management is a big reason why people keep coming back. Every week, General Manager Josh Finnley helps pick a business of the week and delivers free pizzas to them as a "thank you". Brooklyn's also donates pizza to CWU and Ellensburg Athletics.

"He does a great job keeping the tradition alive and making sure that we're creating loyal customers, and that they have the best time that they can have at a pizza place."
