Heavy on local ingredients with a south
of the border flair (roasted asparagus with cilantro pesto base anyone?), Hot Lips has long cornered the sustainable and environmentally responsible market in the Portland pizza scene. Stop in for the slice of the day and a glass of their locally sourced and produced soda or get it delivered it one of their electric cars.
Artisan pizza chain delivers big, seasonally driven flavors..
At the base of the Civic Condominiums, this light-filled outpost of the Hot Lips’ pizza chain provides all the requisite pizza parlor draws: there’s standard cheese and pepperoni pies, fountain sodas, and beer served by the glass, bottle and growler. But the laid-back staff also brings an independent, artisan mindset to the pizza scene that goes beyond such standard fare. Condo dwellers from above and sports fans fresh from a game at adjacent PGE Park frequent this minimalist, cement-floored dining room to nosh on seasonal pies like a summer squash and feta combo, vegan slices and scratch-baked treats like peanut butter oatmeal monster cookies.
