I have been going to this place for a couple of years now and it seems to have finally settled into a groove. The pizza is consistently great. The service is pretty decent considering all the kiddie dodging the servers must do and the patience they must have while parents check out over a pitcher of beer. But, that being said - the food is the real draw. I get the Nooner every time. Garlic olive oil, sausage, gorgonzola, caramelized onion and apples - you have never had it soooo good. Delivery is always friendly and sometimes they run a little behind, but it is a mom & pop operation as far as I can tell.

As a previous review mentioned the will sometimes go out of their delivery area depending (I live on S. Beacon Hill where they don't deliver) on how busy their driver is. I don't find that a consistency issue at all. The will come here if they aren't busy - they won't if they are. I find that to be pretty nice. Since I am out of the area, I have to wait extra time but it is a trade off I am willing to make for such tasty pie.

Pros: delicious pizza, local ownership, delivery

Cons: kids/loud

I used to recommend this place to all my friends and co-workers. Now I regret it.
The pizza is great and so is the Hot brownie desert. Love the kids area, it gives parents a nice break. The problem is the Passive Aggressive Service. Here is what I mean....I canceled a pizza delivery from them after calling twice to find out the ETA, but after an HOUR and 50 minutes I had to feed my son, so I called back and canceled. Ever since then when I call for a delivery I get "could you hold for a minute" after a long hold I get a yes or no. Because every time I call they may or may not deliver to my area. Okay you do or you don't , be consist. Of course this all has happened after I canceled my order. They always know who is calling because of the phone and ordering system. Maybe I is just a coincidence, but the service in the pizza parlor doesn't exactly come with a smile either, that why I took the time to write a review.

I was just driving down Jackson one day, and all of a sudden, a pizza place jumped out of no where. I thought "whoa, what is that doing here?" So I called up my brother and said, "Hey, we gotta try this place out!" We made ourselves look like fools as we walked in, because we did not understand that we were supposed to wait to be seated. So we just wandered around the joint aimlessly until a waitress directed us what to do. There is not a lot of seating in the place, but it is not cramped. We noticed the sourdough crust advertisement, so we had to check that out. We had the Hullabaloo pizza, and we were very impressed. Fresh ingredients, and the crust is awesome. The people were very nice, but there was only one waitress that night with a full restaurant. So we were a little neglected, but we weren't in any hurry. Also, it is a little noisy when there are a group of kids playing in their "children's area." They have some awesome TV's set up if you want to check out a game, but they are not intrusive if you are looking to just converse with others. The pizza was a little bit on the pricey side, but you are paying for a very high quality product, so it is a good value. Finally, the neighborhood is not necessarily the best in Seattle, and the parking is not ideal. However, these little issues are trivial when looking at the overall atmosphere and quality of the food. If you are looking for just an awesome slice, then this is the place to go.

we went to this place for an early dinner (around 5:15) and found the place mostly empty. Our service was prompt and friendly and our food came quickly. The pizza was good, nothing really special. We ordered the kitchen sink pizza and a few salads. Their Caesar is good and the Greek salad was good also. The selection of beer leaves a lot to be desired considering Ale is part of the name of the restaurant and they are in Seattle.
I am interested to bring our kid here once he or she is old enough to run around and play in the kids kitchen (not born yet) since the kids that did come in the door immediately gravitated to this little kids area.
We will come back.

We are so happy that they exist. Great food, great service and so much fun for my little one. We gett to eat and drink and he just lives it up in the pretent kitchen. Yah for All Purpose!

I am on the fence about this place. I've had a truly incredible pizza there, but the last time I went we also got one that was basically almost undercooked (the cheese hadn't even browned!) and it was so loud with all the families with kids (we were the only ones without children) that it wasn't the best dining experience. I think they should get noise-absorbing curtains or something. But if you have kids, it seems like it would be a really fun plcae for them to go--there's even a little kitchen set up where they're playing with each other and extra pizza dough. And there are pitchers of beer for adults. And they do deliver. And the sourdough crust is really, really good.

Amazing pizza! Since having to move to California for work, this is one of my most missed spots. Get a side of the homemade pesto to spread on top of your pizza -- incredible!

Stopped here on a Saturday evening with my wife and some friends. We tried two different pizzas, 4 cheese with pepperoni, and a gorgonzola and pear pie. Both pizzas were awesome. We moved here from Michigan and have not been impressed with the pizza in the area, but this has been an exception. Great service and a really laid-back atmosphere. Beer selection was good, but this was the one area that wasn't outstanding. All in all, a great experience.

Cons: Beer selection needs a few more choices

The service at All Purpose Pizza is simply atrocious. We have experienced:
-long wait for food (always)
-inattentive waitstaff (always)
-lost orders (this has happened to us twice for dine-in and once for delivery)
-wrong orders (this also happened to us twice)
-less-than-fresh salad, especially at lunchtime

However, if you can tolerate the above, you'll have a great meal, even if they don't deliver what you ordered. The pizza is delicious! We also appreciate the kid friendly atmosphere. You just have to go there expecting bad service.

Whoa - I have been hearing about All Purpose Pizza for a while - but I am weird about trying "new restaurants". I like to wait until the hype passes and they get their "sea legs". Well Sea Legs and a Shins album later - this place is amazing!! The sourdough crust is one that satisfies on every level! My kids - and there are 3 of them - are side tracked in the kid area where they get their own dough and entertain themselves among the hordes of other kids there (and parents who need a "break") - the staff is friendly and many of them eye candy. The owners are usually present which my wife and I love because it is truly owner operated. Hands down the best pizza in Seattle. Try it - regret won't be a word coming across your lips! Your kids will beg to go back and you will be hard pressed to deny them with such good food as part of the bargain!

Pros: Sourdough crust, hand tossed so it can be made to order; kids area is just what you need

Cons: its loud

Although a long way from Ballard, i had dinner at this Leschi/Mount Baker neighborhood pizza joint a few weeks back. Some friends of mine live in the neighborhood and have been bugging me to visit for a while. The pizza was awesome - loved the sourdough crust - kinda reminded me of deep dish pizza from Chicago - but better. They have beer and wine for the adults and a mini pizza kitchen for the kids - which was packed as I was there on a Friday nite and it was BUSY. If I lived around there I would definitely order take-out. Highly recommend checking it out and supporting the locals.

Some friends and I went here the other night. I was hungry, though in the mood for something lighter, but they insisted that I'd really like this place. We started with hummus platter and a few beers. The amount of food for a family-style appetizer was perfect; plenty for everyone. The hummus was great -- exactly what I want when I order hummus -- but it was the sourdough 'pita' that really won me over. It had just enough of the light spice and olive oil, and the chewy texture with the cool, mellow hummus was very satisfying.

We moved on to a bottle of wine (I love the Cline!,) and a garlic and olive oil based pizza with fresh mozarella, tomato, and basil (the latter two being added after the pizza was out of the oven so that they were still fresh and pleasant atop the warm crust.) I absolutely loved this pizza, and plan to go back many times for it this summer. This left me sated and feeling like I'd just had a delicious, fresh meal, without any of the heaviness I associate with pizza. The simplicity and quality of their ingredients really shone with this one, and the sourdough once again exceeded my expectations.

We also ordered a Firestarter, which was a fun mixture of jalapeno peppers, onions, and sausage. It had just the right amount of spice that complimented the other rich flavors without overpowering them. This one had their red sauce, and it was some of the best I've had on a pizza, not just because the flavor was excellent, but because it provided both an excellent base for the toppings and a wonderful compliment to the crust, but also because its pleasant, hearty flavor gave an underlying finish to the pizza that I've never experienced. It was somewhat sweet, with a bit of tang, which the waitress told me was the red wine they put in the sauce.

All in all, I had a really great experience here. I left feeling that unique, contented feeling that comes after an exceptional meal in a great place with excellent friends.

I used to work at a specialty pizza place in college (Mackezie River in MT), so I ate nothing but pizza for my entire senior year. They made pizza similar to these, but I REALLY like this place. My friends and I had Ked's special as an appitizer and salad in one, and them moved onto the a few of the others. We all liked it and they all keep telling me how they are taking other people there now. Definitely worth a try for pizza lovers of all levels.

Pizza was horrible. Onion Soup was way too sweet, they forgot the cheese and it was cold. Cheese on the pizza tasted burnt and it was just horrible.

I love pizza - have an open mind, but come on, give me a break, this was terrible.

I just went to all purpose pizza on a recommendation from Madrona Mom's. And wow it was dynamite! I just read the review of a recent poster and wow - is that person WAY off. The crust was amazing and sturdy - not chewy at ALL. The topping selection was awesome and after a long conversation with Brian (I think that was his name) I learned all about how they make their sourdough and sauces from scratch! I have not had better red-sauce on a pizza in this city! It has a bit of red wine and a bit of kick! yum. My boyfriend had the meatball (which are also made by hand! Awesome) sandwich and it was spectacular. The marinara was wonderful and super flavorful. The kids area was a diversion like no other for my two sons who played there with their own dough while we ate happily and had a couple of beers. Awesome!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Jillyweed

Worst pizza I've had in a long time. Tough crust, limp, lifeless toppings, canned sauce. Got a 16", a 12", and garlic bread, no drinks, no tip (to go): $40. Very much a style over substance kind of place. The flat screen tvs are nice. The kid play area (when it's open) is nice. The chairs on the sidewalk are nice. The food sucked. I wish I could have my money back.

The Mood
It's the right kind of pizza place when you see two large-screen plasma TVs in each corner playing high school basketball play-offs, a kids' corner with a wonderfully cheery mural painted on the wall to represent an Italian pizza kitchen, and a list of draft beers that the typical NW beer connoisseur will love. Add to that glossy hand-made tables from sustainable wood sources, a dyed concrete floor to match the rich red walls and oil-on-canvas painting that fills one wall near the bar-height tables and you've got a great neighborhood hang-out. But wait until you try the pizzas!

The Food
The pun-filled menu strikes a chord with the Jackson corridor/Central District/Leschi/Mt. Baker crowd. There's the Hawaiian, with prosciutto, not that nasty Canadian bacon; the Nooner, with gorgonzola and apples on a garlic-olive oil base; the Afternoon Delight, essentially The Nooner with Italian sausage; Ked's Fave, a yummy almond-slivers, prosciutto, and arugula 'do; the Jackson Five, the Firehouse, the Hullabaloo, and the Kitchen Sink. You can skip their faves and make your own, if you have pickier kid palates to please, or if you just have a hankering to create...

The French Onion soup uses their own hand-made croutons and gorgonzola instead of gruyere, and do not miss their salads. The Caesar is an old family recipe and the Chop is what I always order.

I hear the grinders are out of this world, but with so much awesome greens and soup and pizza to consume, I haven't ventured out for the sandwich arena.

One thing to note: the sourdough crust is amazing and it's thick. Ask them to make it ultra-thin and they always very willingly oblige. The staff is courteous and enthusiastic, and they even have a happy hour.

Overall
Check it out, and then go back for more. The pizzas seem a bit more expensive than several other offerings in the neighborhood, but we always have leftovers, which means a meal tomorrow as well.

Love the sourdough crusts and the red wine pizza sauce. Cool art on the walls and nice flat screen TV's to watch a game on. Great kids play area to keep the little ones busy so we can enjoy dinner - they even give the kids pizza dough to play with in addition to all the fun toys. We often stop-in for lunch - great soups, salads, and a good meal-ball sub. It has become our permanent apres-ski spot. We love the cool urban feeling of the restaurant and the pizza is genuinely fantastic!

This pizza is the best here in Seattle. Not paper thin, not a fat doughball crust like you get in Chicago. The crust is like a New York hand-tossed crust, only a bit more crunch. The crust is sourdough. Tasty yet not overpowering. Definitely a change from all the crusts that taste like plain white bread. Also, this crust has the perfect amount of oven spring. Now about the sauce. I think they put a little red wine in it along with some herbs. I know that all pizza sauce comes from a can, however, this one tastes so unique and delicious that I had to ask the cook (who by the way is from New York). The atmoshere is great and they have beer, wine, large flat screens, and a kids play area.

The pies are a little on the expensive side (about the same as Pagliacci's and Mad Pizza) but it is amazing how filling they are. I was full eating 2/3 of a 12" pizza. I am always good for a whole 12" anywhere else.

If you do not try this place out, you are not a real pizza lover.

This pizza joint is THE best pizza in the city of Seattle if not the state of Washington, well, if not the entire country! The crust is perfectly airy, crusty and has a hint of sourdough (they make it there from scratch!) - the tomato sauce is to die for, a hint of wine and some kick! They have a little kiddie area that seems to keep kids occupied so parents can talk over a pitcher of beer. The owners (and we have met them) are local, friendly and acutally work there. The kitchen staff are about the nicest in town - So friendly, so helpful and so passionate! You would be missing out if you passed this place up! It is kind of off the beaten path, but well worth the drive. Delivery too. I may never move from their delivery zone. Keep it up!

They have a little kiddie area that seems to keep kids occupied so parents can talk over a pitcher of beer. The owners (and we have met them) are local, friendly and acutally work there. The kitchen staff are about the nicest in town - So friendly, so helpful and so passionate! You would be missing out if you passed this place up! It is kind of off the beaten path, but well worth the drive. Delivery too. I may never move from their delivery zone. Keep it up!

Pros: Amazingly great pizza

Cons: A little loud (due to lofty ceilings)

We adore All Purpose Pizza! They have an amazing sour dough crust which is smothered in a rich and zesty red sauce and generously topped with high quality ingredients. My favorite is the weedeater (veggie) with red sauce and my husband loves fresh tomatoes, carmelized onions and sausauge. Our little boy can't get enough of the spaghetti and meatballs.
The salads are also fantastic, all with homemade dressings and croutons.
I have yet to branch out and try the sandwiches.
Added bonus- the staff is really friendly and they now have a play area for kids!

If you really want to judge a pizza, get a cheese pie. Any restaurant can put great toppings on a lack luster crust. This pizza is different. All Purpose Pizza makes a sourdough crust and their tomato sause has a hint of vino in it. The toppings are excellent. But most importantly, the foundation which they build upon is superb.
