Apizza Scholls serves some of the best pizza in Portland, and, some argue, north of San Francisco. And with an electric oven! It’s not an unquestioning, Erich Segal Love Story mutual obsession, though. The pizzeria does have guidelines for patrons composing their own topping combos on Apizza’s 18-inch pies: only three ingredients, and no more than two meats per pie.

So choose wisely from a list of toppings that, in addition to classics like anchovies, red onions, garlic, pepperoni, house-made sausage, and basil, includes Olympia Provisions capicollo, house-cured Canadian bacon, cotto salami, arugula, and pepperoncinil. (Yes, you can also top pies with jalapeños, mushrooms, pepperoncini, ricotta, green and black olives, and, sigh, truffle oil.) Just remember: bacon is "not offered for build your own toppings."

If you aren't up to building your own pie, there are 13 classics to choose from with names like "Pig & Pineapple," "Tartufo2 The Electric Boogaloo," and "Sausage & Mama." Among them, you’ll find the signature Apizza Amore: Margherita with capicollo (cured pork shoulder) that has a spicy kick offset by the somewhat sweet mozz and balanced sauce. That’s amore!

  • This place transcends Foursquare tips. It is simply not possible to convey just how good this pizza is, or even suggest a pie that stands above the others. But order the margarita with truffle oil.
  • Thin-crust East Coast/New Haven-style pizza, this southeast joint closes when they out of dough, which they stick in a 650-900-degree oven and char the daylights out of. [Eater 38 Member]
  • People go here to eat the outstanding handmade fresh pizza. One of the best Pizza places in Portland!

  • Prepare to wait in line.
  • They have IT'S-ITs on the menu! And not just vanilla: MINT.
  • Best pizza I've had on the west coast. Better than anything I've had in NYC also. Definitely worth the long wait.
  • Bacon Bianca is delicious
  • a step above Pizzicato
  • Get there early and eat it up

  • Their anchovies on the Ceasar salad are great, makes me want to get them on a pizza.
  • Sausage and Mama's
  • Gorgeous gorgeous crumb!
  • Best Pizza in Portland. Be mindful that while they are purists, the pizza is completely worth it., Try the Amore!
  • Maybe there's something wrong with me but I don't think the pizza here lives up to the hype. I prefer Ken's Artisan Pizza any day. Or if you're up for a drive, Double Mountain Brewery in Hood River.
  • Make sure you set a safe word before ordering.
  • The best pizza out there!
