Pacific Northwest, Pizza
Price Scale

Baker Ken Forkish helped lead Portland into pizza’s promised land in 2005 with experiments at his landmark Ken’s Artisan Bakery. By ’06, he’d spun his wonders into their own restaurant, complete with a wood-fired oven, an Oregon-focused wine list, and a warm setting full of local salvage. Lines form by 4:45 for perfect crust, delicate tomato sauce, and a dozen restrained topping combos, like green garlic with Grana Padano and pecorino or homemade sausage with fiery chiles. Ken’s spicy soppressata truly elevates the art form, with joyful mouthfuls of crispy salami, wild heat, and smoky dough.
