There’s a new motto flying around at TWS these days: “All work and all play.” We get stuff done, but I’ll tell you what, we’re certainly going to enjoy ourselves while we’re at it. That said, when we decided to launch our newsletter, we knew we’d have plenty of solid marketing work to send out to the world. But if we’re going to share our vibes too, we’re going to need another outlet.
Welcome to Slice n’ Sip. An addendum to the newsletter where we get to expound on our love for pizza and coffee. Here, you can expect a possibly cheeky but also informative review* of some of the great pizza and coffee around town and perhaps, even around the country.
Our first edition takes us to the east end of downtown Spokane. With a super top secret and exciting project underway over there, we’ve been spending a lot of time in that area. So it seemed pretty appropriate to feature Peace Pie Pizzeria for episode one.
Peace Pie is an anchor tenant of the super fun community space called the Saranac Commons. The Commons features pizza, a brewery, coffee, sandwiches, and some fun retail too. Its open-air feel and communal space is the perfect gathering spot for when everyone is in the mood for something a little different.
When you slide up to the service station at Peace, the first thing you’ll notice is the sheer size of the pies. We’re talking slices bigger than my face on classic east coast thin crust. If you’ve been to Long Island, then you know what I’m talking about. With a perfect level of crunch and enough strength to transport all the toppings into my mouth, this pizza’s foundation is spot on.
However, the size of this pie wasn’t the only thing we were raving about. Because we ventured down there on St. Patrick’s Day, there were plenty of other specialty foods to help celebrate the “luckiest” day of the year. In fact, the guys at Peace Pie were running a Ruben Sandwich special! It came with massive chunks of corned beef over a white rye sauce, with just a bit of sauerkraut and drizzled with their house-made Russian dressing.
Whether you like a Ruben or not, this pizza was legit. It was so heckin’ good, we’re demanding you clear your schedule next St. Patrick’s Day so your tastebuds can enjoy this Irish Pizza Party too. It was so good we even considered taking a whole pie to-go. Which, by the way, does bring some challenges. Bring a truck or at least a hatchback if you plan on it.
If you think you’re going home with this thing in your Mini Cooper, think again. I never measured it, nor did I ask, but a whole pie is HUGE. So be prepared to either transport it in your trunk or slap it on the roof. And if neither of those work, we’d suggest walking it to your home.
Peace Pie is open for lunch, dinner and they even serve breakfast sandwiches on the weekends. Also, make sure to ask Andrea about the bread. It’s only $4 a loaf and she’ll talk your ear off about it. All in all, we’re excited to hear about your experience at Peace Pie.
