American Dream Pizza in Corvallis, Oregon

POST #    2364

When we went to Oregon last August (can you tell I'm catching up on photos? It's a resolution), we drove through Shannan's college town of Corvallis. She was going to show me around campus a little and take me to a pizza place that she's been raving about ever since I've known her. Campus was really, really dead as pre-school year activity had yet to start up, but at least American Dream Pizza was open.

American Dream is kind of a psychedelic pizzeria, which seems perfect for the state of Oregon and a college town. I can imagine scores of college students flocking there after a night of drinking or smoking to satiate their hunger.

While I'm not generally a fan of crazy items on my pizza, American Dream has a long list of toppings that you can combine to make your own pizza. When in Corvallis... The combination we went with on our pizza were the normal crust, tomato sauce, American bacon, jerk chicken, olives and fresh garlic. The pizza was very tasty (it better be with all those toppings) despite its cornmeal crust, something I tend to despise on pizza. The crust was fine, but a tad chewy. Maybe that was because we were there very early in the day? Or maybe they just count on the cornmeal to make their crust crispier.

We left American Dream full, smelling of garlic and with several slices left for the road.

did she show you our old house (well she just visited her computer there) right around the corner?
Grilled chicken, feta, and artichoke hearts. That's where it's at. Mmmm... American Dream.

It's all looking good but I would be happy with half that amount of olives.
