[PDX] Flying Pie Pizzeria...

extramsg | Jun 11, 200507:59 PM     1

Tried this east-side pizza joint that's over near Ya Hala on Stark. (They have 3 other locations, but apparently this was the first.) We got a slice of pepperoni ($3.25) and a sausage sandwich ($4.50).

The slice of pizza was quite large and piled with overlapping pepperoni. The crust is in that breadstick/foccacia genre, but better than some. The heavy number of toppings and amount of cheese, though, makes the dough secondary anyway. I'd want some dipping sauce if I were going to finish my crusts. The sauce has enough flavor to hang with the heavy toppings. It's both zippy and sweet. The pepperoni wasn't the same calibur as the stuff I had at Apizza Scholls the day before, but it was a hell of a lot better than the pepperoni on the pizza at the Rose Festival. It had a good, if a bit one-dimensional, flavor.

The sausage sandwich was a monstrous meaty mess. An oblong patty of sweet Italian sausage is served on a crusty roll with sweet peppers, cheese, tomatoes, and sauce. It's like a Lou Malnati's sausage pizza on a roll. It's not high class food, but the belly liked it.

I thought both were a good value and tasty. The place itself is funky with things hanging from the ceiling, including an upside down table and chairs. They have a small salad bar and a little arcade. Slices are only served at lunch.
