Our Story

HOTLIPS has been a family-owned business since making Portland’s first “gourmet” pizzas in 1984. In 2005 we began producing fresh fruit soda from the fruits and berries our farmers were growing. Today there are six¬†pizzerias in Portland, a commissary kitchen, a soda brewing operation, a mobile oven that travels to farmers markets and to regional festivals, and a mobile soda set-up.

We’re proud to partner with the Shepherd’s Grain cooperative to provide the flour for our dough; Flamingo Ridge Farm in Gaston, Oregon; Persephone Farm in Lebanon, Oregon; Queener Farm in Scio, Oregon; Weppler Farm in Brownsville, Oregon; Your Kitchen Garden in Canby, Oregon and many other local suppliers and food producers to produce the best pizza in Portland. Our farmers deliver right to our commissary door all week long, ensuring that you have only the freshest local ingredients on your pie.

Our mission is to preserve culture and celebrate humanity through our rich culinary traditions and by joining with others in finding new, sustainable ways of doing business.
