eat your heart out: dove vivi

Friday night we were craving pizza and had to try a place that has been on my list forever. Dove Vivi is known for their cornmeal crust pizza, and I can honestly say it was a unique (and delicious) take on pizza. It's one of those pizzas where you are eating it and thinking, "this is some damn good pizza. It tastes familiar, but just different enough!"

At first, the location is unassuming. It's right on the triangle of NE Glisan and 28th. In a little strip mall, but don't be alarmed - the interior is quaint and totally a casual night out. We sat next to two young men that were contemplating the meaning of life (no, really), staring out to a couple on a date on the front patio tables, as well as a larger family get together.

First up? Drinks! I had a glass of the house Sangiovese while the BF had a can of Stiegl. Then we ordered the special salad- blue cheese wedge! For pizza, we had half Pesto (mozzarella, fontina, ricotta, house-made spinach pesto, basil, fresh tomatoes) and half House Pepperoni (mozzarella, fontina, pepperoni, mushrooms, fresh tomatoes). Truely delicious! Can't believe we've held out on this place for so long! Craving it now!
