Portland Pizzerias That Make Us America's #1 Pizza City

Updated: Jan 11, 2022

We already know there are so many interesting things happening in Portland’s food scene. Our multicultural city has become the grounds for some pretty innovative experimentation in cuisine. When it comes to pizza, it has set a standard in several different styles, which means you will not only find the best of the best here, you’ll get an opportunity to try different takes, from the very traditional to pizzas that ditch the sauce to highlight the flavor of their local and seasonal vegetables or handmade mozzarella. So much so that even Bloomberg recently verified that, yes, we are the best pizza city in America. Sorry, New York!
