Rudloofs Pizza – Leavenworth, WA

Rudloofs pizza Leavenworth

O.k. when you think pizza, you probably don’t think of stone ground mustard, bratwurst, sauerkraut with red and green peppers. But holy cow! When we stopped at Rudloofs Pizza for lunch, Tyson (the owner’s son) was there working when we arrived, and convinced us to try the strange sounding pizza. And I’m so glad that we did!

They have the brats specially made for them Jahr’s European Sausage (the same folks who supply the München Haus). The crust was thin, crispy and somehow warm and fluffy at the same time. We also had the BBQ Chicken pizza. They use Sweet Baby Ray’s Sauce which is on the sweet side and mixed well with the chicken and red onion.

I should note that they also serve Brats, Salads and a few appetizers, but we only tried the pizza. In addition to sodas, milk and juice, you can also get beer (on draft and in bottle) and wine.
