About Us

We make some of the tastiest Pizza Pie on the planet, and we continue to work hard to do so. We come from 3 generations of Oregon pizza makers, and opened our first Corvallis location in 1989.

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 using the Northwest’s finest non-GMO flours from Pendleton Flour Mills.

Our History

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. McFarland and O’Brien teamed up with Brian Bovee in 2012 and opened our sister pub, Sky High Brewing and Pub in downtown Corvallis.
