A Piece of Pie at Apizza Scholls

Another birthday celebration calls for another new restaurant adventure. My brother loves pizza...I mean, he LOVES pizza, more than anyone I know. So, when he was trying to pick a restaurant for his birthday dinner, Apizza Scholls was an easy choice. Surprisingly, no one in our family had been there so it was a new experience for everyone.

You have heard me carry on about all the killer pizza places in Portland (Oven & Shaker, Ken's, Lovely's Fifty Fifty) and now we found another one to add to the list. The atmosphere is casual and doesn't really have a theme like most Portland restaurants, but it didn't seem to bother people because the place was packed! My favorite part was the crust...oh my gosh, yum. My brother doesn't eat crust (unless he as a dipping sauce) and even he ate it!
look at that crust! 
We ordered four of their house pies, but you have the option to make your own as well. They also have a selection of house made salads and antipasti dishes on their menu. All their food is reasonable priced and I have no problem paying for GOOD pizza. I wouldn't recommend going their to drink because their beverage prices aren't cheap with $5 pints and $18 pitchers. Wine prices aren't too bad but beer prices are a little steep.

Overall, a fun place for a casual birthday dinner and I will definitely be back for the pizza, even if I just order it to-go!
