Ken's Artisan Pizza
Bustling spot providing thin-crust pies with unusual seasonal toppings, plus appetizers & wine.
Ken’s Artisan Pizza opened July 5, 2006, following from the success of Monday Night Pizza at Ken’s Artisan Bakery. The restaurant features a Le Panyol wood-fired oven, built by Master Mason Timothy Seaton, and seats 55 plus 10 at the bar. During summer months an additional 16 seats are on the sidewalk.
The warm, airy space features gigantic Douglas Fir beams, big sliding glass windows, an open kitchen with the big igloo-shaped oven in the middle of the pizzeria, and tables and bar built from salvaged wood (old-growth Douglas Fir) that was once part of the late Jantzen Beach Big Dipper roller coaster (1923 – 1970). Prints of the vintage wooden coaster decorate one of the walls in the rear of the restaurant.
