Oregon Culinary Travel: New Pizza Place for Pacific City

(Pacific City, on the Oregon Coast) – The latest addition to the Oregon coast resort village of Pacific City is an offshoot of the Cape Kiwanda RV Park & Marketplace – sitting in the old building that store occupied for over ten years.

Doryland Pizza is a family place and has only been open two weeks, says owner Marty Johnston, who started the store next to his father’s RV Park in 1992. This building has been transformed into a sparkling, shiny but homey place with a wooded feel, video games for the kids – and stuffed to the rafters with a large variety of pizza items.

Last year, the general store moved into the larger structure facing the Pelican Pub. Immediately, Johnston began clearing it out to turn it into a pizza parlor. The building has history in the area, having been the boatworks in the 60’s that crafted the legendary Dory boats of Pacific City. “We wanted to keep the building and its original feel,” said Johnston.

The result was the original wooden floors of the boatworks building now open to the air again, after decades of being covered up by tile and other materials. Johnston said it took some time clean the boatmaking products off the floorboards, but it lends a pleasant atmosphere to the place.

What was supposed to be a few months of reconstruction turned into nine months, as the crews discovered problems with the old building’s ceilings and floors.

The pizza parlor seemed a natural choice in many ways, once the store was moved into the new building, Johnston said. “We wanted to do something cool,” he said. “We wanted to do a family pizza parlor. Because a lot of restaurants around here have pizza on thei menus, we have just pizza. And we felt we should do something that complimented the resort. Everyone staying here needs to feed, and we’ve already got the deli at the marketplace.”

Johnston and his wife Terri acquired pizza retail veteran Todd Hoggatt as manager, who helped them come up with the recipes. Hoggatt has been at the helm of many different pizza shops in the last 20 years.

On the menu are numerous pizza incarnations, with larges (18 inches) ranging in price from $20 to $25. Or customers can build their own pizzas with various elements, including interesting toppings like hamburger, salami, garlic chicken or chopped garlic, among all the regulars.

You’ll also find clam chowder, pasta and a selection of large sandwiches.

Pizzas come with a smooth sauce and a bit of a different jolt given by a touch of garlic added to the crust. It is delicious and intriguing.

Other special offerings from Doryland include the pizza pool parties, where kids can romp around the RV resort’s pool for a while then head across the parking lot to indulge in a pizza feast. Cost for that is $5 per person.

Doryland and the Maretplace also rent out sandboards – which have been imported from Florence, Oregon, where the snowboard-like sport first took root in Oregon. These are designed for heading up Cape Kiwanda’s enormous sandy hill and then shooting down at exhilarating speeds. They are available for $10 for four hours, or $16 for eight hours.
