Movin on up!!

Hey guys, been a while. This is my ( the guy behind the counter ) first time actually blogging, so go easy on me.  Well first things first lets get you updated. My new location is one block past wear I used to be, N Charleston and Lombard. My hours have also changed, I now work 3pm to 10pm Tue-Sat, 3pm to 8pm on Sun and Monday I'm closed.
     Now for the real big news. WE GOT VOTED ONE OF PORTLANDS FIVE BEST FOOD CARTS in the recent WW restaurant guide !!!!!!
oh-oh-and-wait-oh-theres-more. In a few months Pizza Contadino will very proudly and victoriously be moving to the parking lot of the best bar in St Johns, none other then the Fixin To which will be putting me right back on Lombard and Richmond. This move will effect my hours, of which I will keep you informed

On to pizza, I've had alot of great ingredients recently to many to keep track of. Matter of fact the customer usually will remember better then I do what I make, which is fine by me. I'll just keep making them, you tell me which ones where the best.

 Some of my favorites however,
      mustard-cream sauce with bacon, brie and escarole
      mushroom, zuccinhi, balsamic glazed red onion and feta
      roasted potato, smoked padron peppers, sausage and goat cheese
      horseradish-cream sauce with  arugula,red onion, roasted beets and  toasted  walnuts
      oh yeah and Kale! Kale! Kale!

Come see whats going on a pizza next

Raining pie!

Hello pizza fans!  Isn't this rainy weather perfect for a night of pizza at home?  Come on by or call in for a take-home pie.  Tonight's special is a house-made sausage pizza with awesome leeks from Proper Eats in St. Johns.  We've also got a chocolate hazelnut cake to satisfy those sweet teeth of yours!

Also, friends... thank you!  Yesterday was one of our busiest days ever.  It's so nice and so very appreciated to see you all braving the elements in the name of Pizza Contadino.  Many many thanks.

travel WHOOs and woes...

thank you for your patience, loyal readers and eaters.  we've had some setbacks over the holidays.  family emergencies, snow in california (end of the world!!!!), unexpected things coming up here and there.  we were closed for a few more days than we had planned, but we're back in town and back to work.  the cart has returned to regular business hours.  

thanks again everyone.  apologies for any inconvenience.


we didn't take this picture, but this is the kinda thing that kept us from making you pizza.
