I am excited to begin sharing on occasion about our reviews of local restaurants and resources that help to encourage sustainable practices for the benefit of my local friends. Today I want to share a bit about our recent stop at a local restaurant called Hot Lips Pizza.
I am all for new adventures, especially when it comes to food! My husband on the other hand is not so enthusiastic, but he is never opposed to pizza! On a recent date night, we took a trip into Portland’s Pearl District to enjoy Hot Lips Pizza.
Hot Lips has several locations in the Portland, OR area, and is family owned and operated. It is quite a fun little place. The atmosphere is very casual. They are strong supporters of choosing their products and ingredients from local farmers. On the menu, we tried half of the seasonal/local tomato, pesto and ricotta pizza along with half an italian combo (the hubby can’t get by without meat!). We absolutely loved the crispy but thick crust on their pizzas. The seasonal pizza was very unique, and although it didn’t overflow with amazing flavor, it was still enjoyable. The best part about our evening was enjoying the Hot Lips Soda’s, which are specially made by the company from all natural ingredients and local berries. We tried the pear and raspberry flavors and they were both delicious. Yum!
I loved how all their paper products, bottles, etc. were made from recycled materials and were either compostable or recyclable after use…everything!
So if you are in the area, it is definitely worth a visit!
P.S. If you have a chinook coupon book, check out the coupon for two free soda’s with the purchase of a whole pizza. Bring it on!
