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!!!
