⇢ Bill’s Pizza in the Old Port offers quick, old-style slices and pies

Sometimes you want pizza that stretches the boundaries of culinary curiosity, something with a puree of Brussels sprouts and smoked salmon. But sometimes you want “pizza” pizza. We’re talking about good, basic, time-tested pizza. You know, the kind where the crust is not too thick and not too thin, the sauce is red and the cheese is abundant. Bill’s Pizza, a venerable pizza place on Commercial Street in Portland, sells exactly that kind of pizza. Located on the waterfront in the Old Port, Bill’s is within walking distance of lots of trendier eateries and shops. But Bill’s, founded in 1949, is more about finding something that works and sticking with it. Inside, the place is a classic casual pizza joint with booths and tables lined up and an open counter area with pizza makers behind it. The menu is basic, making for quick and easy ordering. You can get a 10-inch pie for $6 or a 17-inch pie for $15.50. Toppings are $1 each for a small pie, $2.25 each for the larger one. Meat toppings include pepperoni, hamburger, sausage, bacon, chicken, ham, salami, meatball, steak and chili. The veggie toppings include onion, green pepper, mushroom, spinach, tomato, pineapple, jalapeños, black olives and Greek olives. Besides pizza, Bill’s offers French fries, garlic bread, salads and soup. They also sell pizza by the slice.
