Deep Dish Isn't Just for Chicago Anymore! The Star Brings Deep Dish to Portland

Ready to Try The Newest Deep Dish Pizza in Portland?

Deep Dish in Portland: Deep dish pizza has made its way to Portland, and everyone is loving it. The Star, located in the Pearl District, has introduced deep dish to the city of trees. The Star began in the Bay Area, and this is its first location in Portland.

The Star in Portland is much like its Bay Area location but uses local ingredients including Zenner’s Sausage and Mama Lil’s Peppers. The dough is tossed daily, dressings and sauces are all made from scratch, and the bar serves artisan cocktails, craft beer, and local wines.

The ambiance of The Star is elegant yet friendly, and the environment is casual. It is loud with friendly chatter and gets busy, so a reservation is recommended. If you have time to go for lunch, the lunch menu is the way to go. Personal thin crust and deep dish pizzas are served until 4. After 4, craft deep dish and thin crust pizzas fill the menu. While The Star is known for its deep dish, their thin crust is just as delicious.

Try the roasted cauliflower as a starter, the Pesto Chicken thin crust, and the classic deep dish to start. The menu has vegetarian and gluten-free options as well. It is family-friendly and the pizzas come in two sizes. The smaller size can be shared by 2-3, and the larger can be shared by 3-5. Prefer to create your own pizza? There is a build your own option as well! Next time you are in the mood for pizza, check out The Star!
