Odd Moe’s Pizza Opens on Highway 99W

Reported by Danielle Brown

I won’t lie. I was a little disappointed to find out that Odd Moe’s Pizza was, in fact, not Mod Pizza, but the disappointment didn’t last long after I took the first bite of a cinnamon dough dunker. Odd Moe’s Pizza, a franchise that began in May of 1999, recently opened on Highway 99W across from the Newberg Chevrolet.

My first round of Odd Moe’s consisted of dough dunkers and cheesy garlic bread. I figured the best way to decide if a place was worth a whole pizza would be tasting its cheesy garlic bread. Fresh out of the oven, the garlic bread was stringy and soft, and the dough dunkers were still gooey on the inside. It definitely called for a second round.  My friends and I ordered a Grand Salami Specialty Pizza, an all-meat pie with salami, pepperoni, ground beef, Italian sausage and Canadian bacon and topped with freshly grated mozzarella cheese.

Odd Moe’s prides itself in the ingredients that go into making their pizzas — handmade dough and freshly cut vegetables. Their website also explains that their mascot, Odd Moe, is not a person but an image they want to present to their customers: “a professional, hard-throwing, taste bud bending, quirky chap that has the heart of a lion and the tenacity and determination which truly represents our workforce here at Odd Moe’s Pizza.”

The portion sizes are big enough to feed a few friends so I definitely recommend heading down and splitting a pie. Order some dough dunkers or a pan of cheesy garlic bread and enjoy an evening away from Canyon Commons.
