Newport Pizza & Ale House
Great pizza, “no crap on tap,” and unparalleled people-watching, all in one spacious spot on the sandier end of Newport Avenue in O.B. On a recent trip, while waiting for my slices to be heated up and made extra crispy in the oven, a guy named Mitchell took minutes to make sure my Old Rasputin Imperial Stout was perfectly poured. The pizzas have humorous, cheeky names, such as the Ron Jeremy (aka meat-lover’s) and Patchouli Pie (vegan). From Chuck Norris and M.C. Hammer (cheese, pepperoni), to the David Hasselhoff (garlic, basil, ricotta, tomato) and the Happy Hippie (all veggies), each slice is delectably chewy, all of the toppings thoroughly cooked and delicious.
