Pizza Week slice portland Pizza Week

Susie Knows Pizza Week

Your taxes are done (hopefully)… Let’s go eat pizza! The Portland Mercury’s much-loved Pizza Week starts today and features $2 slices all over town. I’ve scoped out the list and here are the slices I look forward to the most:

Southeast: “Classic Pepperoni” at Virtuous Pie. I have never had anything at this plant-based pizzeria that was not perfect.

What’s on it: San Marzano tomato sauce, housemade pepperoni, shredded mozzarella, and EVOO


Northeast: “Spinach Artichoke Dip” at Via Chicago  Deep dish!

What’s on it: Old-fashioned spinach artichoke dip


Northwest: “Star Wipe” at the Rogue Pearl Public House

What’s on it: Prosciutto, soppressata, mozzarella, fresh arugula, and shaved asiago cheese.


North: “Spring Fling” at The 1905.  Go for the pizza, stay for the live jazz.

What’s on it: Lemon-garlic cream sauce, mozzarella, pickled radishes, mint-English pea purée, and spring onions.
