Well, it was a beautiful pizza. Longtime Southeast Belmont Street staple It's a Beautiful Pizza closed its doors in February. A review from Stumptown Vegans gives an idea of what the vibe was like:
The pizza is touted as "legendary" and their aptly named specialty pizzas are named after music legends: Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell, Ravi Shankar, Jimi Hendrix and just "Jerry." I don't know about legendary, but the veganized Ravi Shankar featuring their special peanut-tamari sauce, roasted coconut, scallions, shredded carrots, peanuts, tofu and cilantro is quite talked about among my friends.The roomy space will now be occupied by Hall of Records, which will be a bar/restaurant of some kind (tipsters can be a little vague) and will have DJs, and will not have a copy of your birth certificate (so bring your valid ID if you want a beer). Opening date TBA.
