SPECIAL THINGS. like meatballs and pudding.

Hello again!  Again this week we'll be offering the meatball sub.  They've been a pretty big hit, so come and get one while you can (please, and thank you)!  We're also offering a mighty special special this week. BREAD PUDDING!  Delicious and spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg.  It comes with a scoop of our house made fig and orange jam and a dollop of fresh whipped cream.  YEAH!

As usual, we'll have a variety of fine pizzas for your dining pleasure.  Last week there was a pretty nice helping of roasted potato options available.  Get ready for whatever this week will bring!  Thanks and hope to see you soon.

oh hey pizza people.

Clearly, we have been very un-bloggy here at Pizza Contadino.  That doesn't mean there's nothin' to blog about... we've just been a little pre-occupied.  The weather's finally made that final turn for the worse, and we're in the rainy season.  It's slowed you all down a little bit, but it shouldn't.  The cart has a phone number now so you can call in your orders!  Just give us a ring and we'll have your pizza waiting for you - nice and warm for a cozy night at home!

Here's the number: 503.935.4375.

Hopefully we'll be so busy with your orders that we'll be able to start offering delivery soon too!

And in other news.....

We've been smoking up a storm here since the salmon.  Many a pepper has enjoyed both our hot and cold smokers and can be found in special pizza sauces and spicy hot sauces as well.  We've been curing and smoking our own bacon (!!!) and it's been getting better every time.  Even the no-goods out there think so.  Some mean human stole two thirds of our last batch straight off the grill about a week ago.  Really hoping they enjoyed their raw slab of salty salty pork belly.  That was not rad.  It was like.... one a.m.  So mean.

We've also started to offer an old-school pizza parlor staple: THE MEATBALL SUB!  We make our own bread using the sourdough.  The meatballs have been ranging from buffalo to beef to lamb.  Delicious red sauce.  Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.  Yum!  Great for warming up your belly on a rainy day.

So that's a little of the news.  Hope to see you soon!
