Finally got to Ken's Artisan Pizza on NE 28th. First off I'll say that Nostrana can rest easy, it retains its crown as Portland's best pizza. Ken's biggest mistake is his odd decision to put fennel seeds in his sauce, making every pizza taste like it has sausage. Plus you can't really call a pizza a Margherita if it has fennel... there are no fennel seeds in a Margherita pizza... A Margherita is a very specific pizza. Besides that not quite enough sauce, and the dough wasn't cooked enough on the bottom, although the edge was blackened. Anyway, Nostrana's pizza is better across the board!!!

Apparently, Blogger isn't a big fan of tables, they look slightly goofy and are hard to edit, so I'll just update this page from now on. On a fairly rainy night, with many dropped passes, and a slippery pig skin, Cleveland beat the Crescent Valley raiders 15-0!!!

Best pizza in PDX? Nostrana, hands down. Also, closest to Italian pizza I've had in the US, be sure to spring for the Mozzerella di Bufala... that's fresh mozzerella made with buffalo milk, excellent stuff!!! And, if you like their pizza plates, they are made by Steelite and you can order them from Bargreen Ellingson in the industrial NW area.
