SEATTLE — For many, the search for the perfect pizza can be a life-long pursuit. But the quest doesn't have to take you to Italy or New York. The best slice might just be in your own neighborhood.

There's also a great item on the brunch menu — the bacon and egg breakfast pizza.

The new spring menu also extends to the bar. The colorful concoctions include the Terra Rosa which is a mix of beet juice, grappa, cynar, gernet, and prosecco. There's also a Hibiscus margarita and the Pacific Northwest Sour which has gin, house-made IPA syrup, egg white, and lime. The restaurant also has an extensive wine list with imported and local Washington wines.

Mioposto doesn't just serve delicious drinks and food, it also gives back to the community. So far this year, they've donated more than $13,000 through their Pizza + Philanthropy program which includes fundraisers, sponsorships, food donations, and gift card donations.

"All of the funds go to support the nonprofits and schools in our communities," said director of operations Rachel Boddie. "It's where we live and work. It's our foundation. We want to be local. We want to survive and nurture where we are."

Mioposto has four locations in Seattle and Mercer Island. Each one is open seven days a week for brunch, lunch, and dinner.
