About the Dream
We at American Dream Pizza are happy to be part of the Corvallis community. Corvallis owned and operated since 1989, we make some of the tastiest Pizza Pie on the planet, and we continue to work hard to do so. We chop our veggies fresh daily, and prepare our pizza sauces and salad dressings from scratch. Our pizza dough is a cherished third generation family recipe. We mix it with care using the Northwest’s finest flours from Pendleton Flour Mills and Greenwillow Grains, grown and milled here in the Willamette Valley. To compliment our Pizza, we offer outrageous salads, monster calzones, delectable breadsticks and hot-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies. We pour a seasonal variety of local and regional microbrews, including tasty pints from Sky High Brewing, our sister pub, and craft handmade cocktails using our own infused spirits at our three cocktail bars, Crowbar, Crow’s Nest, and HandleBar.
As our customer at the Dream you’ll get fast and friendly service, hear good music, be surrounded by original art and vibrant color and eat really well. You can eat in peace knowing we do our best to be an environmentally friendly shop – we recycle, compost our veggie trimmings, use our pizza ovens to heat our water and donate our cooking oils to be made into bio-fuel. If you decide on delivery, expect your order to arrive in good time, with courteousness and care -and keep an eye peeled for our delivery bike and our Honda Fit delivery vehicles.
American Dream Pizza is deeply committed to keep local money local, so it’s no surprise that we have our fingers in a lot of pies around town. We are also committed to take good care of our people – we offer a creative, respectful and fun work environment with good pay, and a health and retirement plan for full time staff. We have fun here at the Dream, and so will you. We thank you, one and all, for your continued patronage and support!
Founders Scott McFarland and Sebastian Malinow combined talents in 1985 to create the first American Dream Pizza in NE Portland. Inspiration came from Portland’s original pizzeria, Caro Amico, part of Scott’s family since Grandpa Fred Baker opened the restaurant in 1949. Caro Amico is now a Portland landmark, owned and operated by Scott’s Mom, Elsie Baker McFarland. The partners followed their Portland shop by launching the Campus Dream in Corvallis in 1989. In 2004, McFarland opened the Downtown Dream in Corvallis with partner Mark O’Brien. Along with Brian Bovee, McFarland and O’Brien opened our sister brewery Sky High Brewing and Pub in downtown Corvallis in 2012.
