    Official Tasting Notes: Having roots that run deep in upstate New York, I'm always in search for the the best slice around Seattle. When Palermo Gourmet Pizza and Pasta opened a couple of months ago in Ballard, I was willing to give it a try. Growing up, pizza for us was New York style (super thin, flexible, large slices), Sicilian style (more bread like), or white pizza (garlic, olive oil and cheese).  I still have yet to find anything that compares to what I grew up with but have come to the realization that pizza in Seattle falls into two styles; good and bad.

    My first visit to Palermo's I was greeted by a friendly wait staff that was eager to show me their best. With 25 different pizzas to choose from, I chose the Quatro Stagoni, with chunks of prosciutto, mushrooms, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, marinara sauce, and fresh basil. The dough was very soft and chewy. The sauce was flavorful, with a good combination of herbs and tomato sauce.  I've never had prosciutto served in cubes. The texture was an interesting change to thinly sliced prosciutto that I'm used to. Palermo's pizzas are available in 10", 12", and 15" sizes. I'm a big eater, and the small 10" pizza with six slices was more than enough food for me. I ended up taking two pieces to go.

    In addition to pizza, pasta, and sandwiches, Palermo's also has a great selection of Greek appetizers, including baked cauliflower, dolmades, and spanikopita.  Their Sicilian salad, a bargain at $5.50 for a half size, is loaded with garganzola cheese, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, cukes, salami over greens and drizzled with their homemade herbed Italian dressing.
