The best pizza in Bellingham can be found at Goat Mountain Pizza.
Pizza is priced by weight so you can choose as much or as little as you like. Their lovely staff member, Abraim helped us select a sample of Sausage, Beef Rib with Caramelized Onions and Potato and Bacon pizza slices. For four generous slices and a can of blood orange Pelligrino it was under $15.
As we paid, we were asked the odd question of weather or not we were Canadian. When I quipped back "Why do you ask? Do we smell like bacon?" I saw a surprised smile tug at the corner of another staff member's lips. Amusing lot.
The place is clean, casual and inviting, with seating downstairs and upstairs. We slid into a choice spot overlooking the street upstairs and waited for our slices. Abraim sought us out for a chat. We later learned he was working on putting together a Kickstarter campaign to do a cross country video coffee tour and was also applying to be a Barista at Matchstick and Revolver in Vancouver - two places we frequent often. We wish him luck as he clearly was very passionate about coffee, and Vancouver needs passionate people like him. Hopefully we'll run into him again on this side of the border.
The pizza arrived soon after, piping hot on wooden boards. We dug in with gusto as it smelled so cheesy. I enjoyed the spiciness of the Sausage pizza and John found the Beef Rib pizza addictive. The crust was light and chewy with a little bit of crunch on the bottom, the sauce was so subtle that it merely acted like a condiment - something some pizza places fail at with too strong of flavour. I felt the toppings were fresh and tasted pleasing together.
We have a hard time finding a place eat when we visit Bellingham but we're going to add Goat Mountain Pizza into our circuit from now on. Bon Appetite!
