The New York-Style Pies At Sweet Basil Pizzeria In Washington Will Steal Your Heart
There are two types of Washingtonians: those who love pizza and those who are passionate about pizza. Washington is full of fantastic locally owned pizzerias, one of which happens to be in America’s best wine region, Walla Walla. If you have yet to sample the slices at Sweet Basil, it’s time to treat yourself.
Sweet Basil Pizzeria is located in the heart of downtown Walla Walla.
It all started 12 years ago, when owners Stephenie and John Bowen decided to bring their passion for New York style pizza to the Northwest.
Typically, you can enjoy your pizza in the dining room or on the small patio... but due to current events, Sweet Basil has expanded their outdoor space, just like the other downtown eateries.
Walla Walla still has some sunny autumn days ahead, so you can dine under the stars for a while before winter weather arrives.
Here, the dough is hand-tossed, and it's made fresh daily.
And if you eat a lot of pizza, you know the crust can make a world of difference in the taste.
The pizzas are New York style, but the Sweet Basil team adds their own personal touches.
These delicious pies are truly one-of-a-kind.
One of the local favorites is the Sweet Basil itself, pictured here.
The fresh mozzarella and fresh basil pair perfectly with the homemade sauce.
Choose from the pizza menu or create your own tasty toppings combination.
You can also order plenty of salads and sides like Stromboli if your group is especially hungry.
Sweet Basil Pizzeria is open Monday - Saturday from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m.
The next time you're in Walla Walla, pick up a pie after a long day of wine tasting and exploring.
