Portland’s Pizza Boom Continues With Soon-to-Open Detroit-Ish Pizzeria

From the man behind Nuvrei, Pop Pizza will top thick, square pizza slices with things like cabbage, caraway and sausage

Portland’s pizza scene has exploded in the last year, and it shows no sign of stopping: Ranch continues to expand, Gracie’s opened a restaurant in St. Johns, even Nick Zukin of Mi Mero Mole opened a pizzeria with Mexican toppings. And it seems that the pizza explosion will continue in 2020 with the opening of Pop Pizza, a new Detroit-Roman pizzeria from the pastry giant behind Nuvrei.

The Oregonian reports that Pop Pizza will incorporate owner Marius Pop’s roots: Pop was born in Romania and has family in Detroit, so the thick-crust pan pies will come with topping combinations like cabbage, caraway, and sausage. But it’s not all about novelty flavors: Pop Pizza will also have more standard toppings in pre-cut slices. The pizzeria will open in early 2020 at 610 SE Morrison Street.
