Pizza Schmizza

How I heard of this place: We happened to walk by on day one of our five-day stay in Portland, while my friends and I were engaged in an Urban Adventure Quest! The pizza craving hit, and it was right there…so we made our way in.

Type of cuisine: Our goal may not be ‘world domination’, but it is building Schmizza into the world’s leading brand of delicious New York style pizza by the slice served in the kind of place you’d love to go, by servers committed to your having a terrific experience and a great value, each and every time.

Ambiance: This is not just another pizza place. There’s a vibe, an ambience, a feeling that you can’t quite put your finger on. A happy place – serious about the food and drink it offers. Serious about the customer enjoying a memorable experience. Serious, happy, and edgy. Irreverent. With a name like Pizza Schmizza, the irreverence is palpable.

Get ready for fun and great New York pizza when you enter the door of a “Schmizza”! Each store is different and yet you’ll always know you’re in a Schmizza. You may be greeted by a looming Tyrannosaurus Rex, or sit at a table showcasing a zany array of Pez dispensers.

Grab a group of friends and gather round one of the three TVs for some of the best pizza in town. Pick from 25 Schmizza varieties including the traditional Italian offerings, more exotic options (including Louisiana alligator and steak and potato), or the long list of chicken pizzas.
Schmizza is a family adventure and kids love the excitement. There are plenty of coloring sheets and crayons. Depending on the location, pooches are welcome on the back patio.

What I ordered: In our little party of three, we gorged ourselves on three slices. Mine, the Cheese ($3.59) with a creamy pile of 100% mozzarella & parmesan cheese; the second: Pepperoni, cheesy goodness with pepperoni on top, and lastly, the Green Chicken Pie, pesto chicken, fresh spinach, marinated artichoke hearts, roma tomatoes & feta cheese. Make it a combo with a slice and a drink for $4.99!

Why I loved it: Simple, good food served in an eclectic, comfortable setting.

Cost: Low ($3.50 – $4.50 per slice)
