I've eaten a lot of good pizza. I'm such a nut that I have a wood-burning oven at home and make my own pizza about every weekend. However, eating Ken's this week almost left me depressed. First off, I had a good feeling when my daughter and I walked into the place and saw a huge stack of wood and a large wood-burning oven. The restaurant is simple and unpretentious. I ordered the spicy Soppressata and my daughter the Arugula. Both were incredible. The crust was a delightful balance of crunchy exterior and chewy interior, expertly cooked in the way only a wood-burning oven can. The sauce and toppings were delectable, and plentiful. My pizza was accompanied by a very nice draft IPA. Neither of us could finish and we took out nearly a whole pizza most of which vanished before the night was over. If you're looking for great pizza - or just great food - in Portland, I heartily recommend Ken's Artisan Pizza.
