Pyro Pizza

Wood-fired pizza from a cart? Oh yeah, you’re in Portland now. Pyro Pizza does it, and it’s delicious thin-crust pizza – at one time, one of my favorites on town. (It could still be one of my favorites, but wood-fired pizza has since popped up around Portland like mushrooms in December.)

I used to live in the neighborhood, so if my husband was out for the evening and I was feeling flush, I would go get the Onion pizza: shaved raw onion, Rogue Smokey Blue, parmesan cheese, rosemary, and pistachios. After a few minutes at 700 degrees, there’s not much rawness to the thin onion.

Sub vegan cheese for no charge. Whole 12″ pies only.

Sodas are made in-cart “with natural ingredients and cane sugar.” Why did I not know about this when I was pregnant? Flavors vary, but natural cola, sarsaparilla or root beer, ginger ale, thai coffee, basil lime, and more sounds right up my alley.

No gluten-free pizza crust, but they do have some salads.

If you haven’t been to Cartopia in a while, they’ve put in a new patio and tables. Really snazzed up the place. There’s a good amount of dry seating, and beer to boot. You can also take your pie into the High Dive bar two doors down.
