Garlic Jim’s Famous Gourmet Pizza has locations in five western states, and I tried one in Lakewood, Washington just outside of Tacoma. I believe they only offer delivery or carryout and their niche is gourment pizza delivery, and being a lover of all things garlic, the restaurant name alone was all the motivation I needed to sample this pizza. My pie consisted of pepperoni, sausage, and Canadian bacon on Garlic Jim’s own hand-thrown thick crust. The crust had some good seasoning on it, but I was expecting a little more given the name and would like to try their garlic thin crust next time (their third crust offering is a gluten-free one for those health-conscious pizza fans). However, they totally redeemed themselves with the garlic dipping sauce that came with the breadsticks as it was great with the breadsticks and crust, and I thought their toppings were very flavorful as well. I think Garlic Jim’s is definitely worth a try as they offer a lot of different specialty pizzas as well as wings, ribs, salads, and desserts.
What I Ate: Sausage, Pepperoni, and Canadian Bacon
