Pizza and pop are a familiar combination, but Seabeck Pizza's new Port Orchard location will feature a different twist: espresso.
Owners Nick and Joleen Reynolds, who moved into their new 2,700-square foot location last week next to Lowe's, plan to sell lattes through the drive through.
"We wanted to try something new," Nick Reynolds said.
The drive through, where customers will be able to buy pizza by the slice, starting this week, is one difference from the couple's Silverdale location, which opened two years ago.
The cheese, pepperoni and sausage with onions, mushrooms and green peppers will be sold at the drive through along with some specialty breakfast pizzas.
Besides that, the building is pretty similar. It features a TV and foosball table with seating for 60 people.
While the location has changed, Reynolds said the pizza and prices remain the same. Seabeck Pizza, which also has locations in Belfair, Bremerton, Gig Harbor and in Seabeck, features seven varieties of pizzas in thin or deep dish.
Reynolds said "The Works," which has pepperoni, Canadian bacon, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, Italian sausage, black olives, pineapple, ground beef and tomatoes is the most popular. Seabeck Pizza also sells Italian, Hawaiian, meat lovers, veggie, Greek and chicken alfredo pizzas.
Reynolds said his pizza stands out because they use deck ovens that bake at 600 degrees. He noted that it takes longer to cook than other pizzerias, but believes it is worthwhile.
"It just tastes better in a deck oven," he said.
The original Seabeck Pizza was opened in 1989 in Seabeck by Reynolds' father-in-law, Jerry Anderson. Anderson still runs that location, while the Reynolds' operate the other five.
"I like that it's homemade," he said. "We make dough every day. We cut vegetables every day. We make sauce every day."
The family does not discuss "trade secrets," but Reynolds said he believes the use of fresh ingredients make a difference.
In addition to pizza, Seabeck Pizza also has six beers on tap. With the exception of Coors Light, all come from Northwest breweries, including two from Silver City. The couple also sells wine.
Seabeck Pizza is open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.Contact Port Orchard Independent Staff Writer Chris Chancellor at firstname.lastname@example.org or (360) 876-4414.
