4-10 pm daily.

Since firing up its ovens in 2007, Dove Vivi has drawn crowds with crispy cornmeal pizza crust and weird toppings like corn and butternut squash. Pies are offered at $20 for a whole and $10 for a half, but that ruins half the fun of what makes Dove Vivi a hit—experimentation. With slices made to order (at $3.75 each) from an everyday menu, it’s easy to please picky palates with the Pepperoni Classico or Quatro Formaggio, while the corn-covered slices and spicy housemade sausage add pizzazz. A rotating menu of daily specials is a bit friskier, boasting such anomalies as ham and pear, chorizo, golden chanterelle and a colorful cast of pies both strange and traditional. It’s a virtual pizza lab offering something for every taste…. Just be sure to grab a glass of wine, as even slices take 20 minutes to cook, and get ready to play willing guinea pig to the mad experiments. AP KRYZA.

This Glisan Street joint starts with a 12-inch buttery cornmeal crust and piles on the fresh toppings—from housemade Italian sausage to broccoli rabe, fig jam or marinated leeks. MODERATE.   More

Dove Vivi fills a niche, bringing deep-dish cornmeal-crust pizza to Portland. Gavin Blackstock, 26, and Delane Hamik, 25, worked for a year at the famous L.A.-area pizzeria Zelo before debuting Dove Vivi—whose menu is identical to Zelo's—in June in the just-off-Northeast 28th Avenue spac   More

As anyone who’s driven by Apizza Scholls at 6 pm on a Friday night can attest, this is a thin-crust pizza town, and newcomer Dove Vivi took a serious risk by going deep-dish.
