The Trendy Seattle Pizza Shop That Takes Months To Fill Delivery Orders

All across the U.S., big cities have their own unique pizza places. You've got Buddy's Detroit-style pizza in Detroit; Pizzeria Mozza in L.A.; Di Fara in Brooklyn; and, if you've got a few months to wait, you've got Moto in Seattle.

According to Seattle Refined, Moto opened during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic; and, since then, has followed a pre-order fulfillment system. In other words, you hop online when Moto is taking orders — that's right, you can't just order whenever you feel like it — and you order your $16-$29 pizza. Then you sit back and wait. And wait. And wait. We're talking months of waiting for a pizza.

Despite the long wait, Moto maintains a 4.5-star rating on Yelp with 159 reviews, so the pizzeria must be doing something right. Even a TikToker who posted a disgruntled clip about Moto's customer service couldn't deny that the pizza was great.

What TikTok has to say about Seattle's Moto pizza

In a recent TikTok video, Sara Starr confirmed that Seattle's Moto pizza shop does indeed take months to fulfill orders. According to Starr, she ordered pizza from Moto on November 15, 2022, and didn't receive any kind of update until March 22, 2023, when the shop texted to say her order was ready to be picked up.

To Starr's further annoyance, the text arrived around 6 p.m., after her family had already eaten a homemade dinner. However, as Starr pointed out, she had paid about $100 for her order back in November, so she didn't have much choice but to go pick up the pizzas.

In a second TikTok, she shared a glimpse of what remained of the Moto pizzas, saying that they were "really good." Several other commenters agreed that the pizza was well worth the wait, but most people firmly said they would not wait five months for a pizza. To be honest, we probably wouldn't, either — not when we can grab a Little Caesars Hot N' Ready pizza.
