Celebrate National Pizza Day in Kent

Feb. 9 is National Pizza Day. Mark the occasion with a tasty slice or four in Kent, Washington.

Whether your taste buds crave a traditional pepperoni, cheese or sausage pie, or you want to sink your teeth something that’s a little out of your comfort zone, Kent offers some tasty pizza options. Make your plans to celebrate everyone’s favorite food on National Pizza Day, Feb. 9. Here are five spots in Kent to grab a slice:

The Airways Brewing and Bistro & Beer Garden. Technically, it’s not pizza, but the flatbread selections are worth including. Currently on the menu at Airways: Applewood smoked bacon, balsamic figs and chevre cheese; sausage with peppers and caramelized onions; and roasted chicken, onions, achiote spices, queso fresco, cilantro and lime crema. Oh, and you get to pair them all with award-winning craft beer. New on tap: Airways Resolution Breaker and Winter Dark Lager.

Golden Pizza. It’s all about fresh and homemade at Golden Pizza. Build your own, or order one of Golden Pizza’s specialty pies, including white sauce spinach artichoke chicken or pineapple pulled pork. Or skip the tough decision and opt for the super combo, including pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, Canadian bacon, black olives and beef.

MOD Pizza (x2). Head to MOD Pizza Kent Station or MOD Pizza Kent East Hill and find out what the buzz is about. MOD is noted for making super-delicious artisan pizza, super fast. Build your own masterpiece from more than 30 toppings or order a MOD specialty pizza. The Caspian, topped with mozzarella, gorgonzola, barbecue chicken and sliced red onions, is as good as it sounds.

Rich’s 5 Star Pizza. Feeling the need for meat? Opt for Rich’s 5 Star Philly Cheesesteak pizza, or The Carnivore, featuring pepperoni, Canadian bacon, sausage and meatballs. Or go a little lighter (but no less delicious) with The Margherita, a combo of basil leaves, diced tomatoes, light Mozzarella and olive oil. Opt for extra zing and top it with Rich’s balsamic glaze.

Whether you’re celebrating pizza’s official day or looking for a place to grab a tasty pie on one of the other 364 days of the year, make Kent your destination. Find out more about places to eat and things to do In Kent.
