With a tomatillo cream sauce, pickled jalapeño peppers, roasted mushrooms, and fresh oregano and cilantro, East Glisan Pizza Lounge’s Pizza Week slice is making a strong case for it to stay on the menu forever. Dreamt up by new Chef Kyle Munroe, the Montaverde’s base lends citrus-tinged decadence to the pop of pepper and plump mushrooms, and we suggest you kick it up even more with their house chili oil. It’s all served up on East Glisan’s legendary sourdough thin crust—with all kinds of chew and just the right amount of char. Wash your slices down with their Pizza Week drink special, the Snowball’s Chance ($7), a tasty float of tequila, pineapple and lime slush in a pint of Snipes Mountain Brewery lager.
