Portland’s Pizza Brings Their Brand to Hollywood
PORTLAND, Ore. (October 4, 2017) — Sizzle Pie, the beloved Portland pizza joint famous for having vegan and vegetarian pies craved by meat eaters, and salads named after Roman tyrants and hardcore punk bands, is bringing its 40 thin-crust pizzas to a new location in Portland’s Hollywood District.
Open 365 days a year, and on the same block as the historic Hollywood Theatre and Little Axe Records, this 4th location will cover Portland’s late-night cravings; the order-from-the-counter joint will be open from 11am to 3am on weekdays and til 4am on weekends. This addition will also see Sizzle Pie become the official pizza purveyor for the Hollywood Theatre’s cozy pizza by the slice concession stand known as the “Pie Hole.” Sizzle Pie’s co-founder Matt Jacobson says, “We are super excited to join the Hollywood community and to work with the fine folks at the legendary Hollywood Theatre! We look forward to proudly supporting the non-profit while slinging slices to the patrons at the Pie Hole.”
Hollywood Theatre Executive Director Doug Whyte says, “We’re thrilled to welcome Sizzle Pie to the Hollywood district and to start serving their great pizza at the Theatre. We think they’re going to be a great fit for our audience, and we’re especially excited to finally have some vegan options available!”
Vegan, vegetarian, carnivore or gluten-free? You’ll find what you’re looking for. Patrons can order salads, slices and whole pies with playful and often musically-inspired pizza names like Wyld Stallyns, Ace of Spades, Queen, and Spiral Tap; Sizzle Pie continues to honor its strong ties with the music and art worlds. Co-founders Matthew Jacobson — who launched Relapse Records in 1990 — and artist Mikey McKennedy have built Sizzle Pie around their love for pizza and music, infusing the space, merchandise and art with heavy-metal notes.
Sizzle Pie’s inaugural location, 624 East Burnside, has recommenced operations after being closed for three weeks due to a fire next door. With locations in Brooklyn, NY, Seattle, Eugene, and three premier locations in Portland, join Sizzle Pie’s pizza revolution and say: “DEATH TO FALSE PIZZA!”
