Monday night pizza at Ken’s Artisan Bakery, the most beloved bakery in Portland, became so popular that Ken decided to open a new restaurant devoted entirely to the wood-fired, thin-crust pies. The result is Ken’s Artisan Pizza in Southeast, which serves a rotating menu of classic and seasonal pizzas, along with some excellent desserts. It’s always busy, but there’s usually somewhere to sit down outside and have a glass of wine while you wait, which is our preferred way to prepare for pizza anyway.
