Susie Knows Pizza Week

Pizza Week is underway … and it’s insane. This year the Portland Mercury wrangled up a whopping 34 restaurants to offer $2 slices all over town. When Pizza Week started a few years ago there were a lot more basic cheese-and-red sauce offerings … but my how times have changed. Remember that gum in “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” that tastes like a Three Course Meal? That’s what this year’s wacky Pizza Week has become. And it’s very fun. For example:

  • “The PILF” at Bella Pizza (American and mozzarella cheese, ground beef, onions, tomatoes, pickles, shredded iceberg lettuce, and Thousand Island dressing.)
  • “Stadium Special” at Blackbird Pizza (Black bean tomato base, vegan nacho cheese sauce, soyrizo, black olives, tomatoes, pickled jalapeños, green onions, vegan sour cream, and tortilla chips.) (Pictured above)
  •  “The Naanfather” at Fillmore (Tandoori-spiced cauliflower, special secret sauce, herbs, and roasted peanuts.)
  • “Snake River Party Boi” at Sizzle Pie (Chipotle red sauce, red onion pico, vegan pastor, aji amarillo sauce, and cilantro.)IMG_20180417_010233_481

And many more! Vegetarian and vegan Pizza Week options are available at many (but not all) spots. It runs through Saturday. Let me know your favorite slice!
