La Perla Pizzeria is one of a select few restaurants in the nation producing pizza made in the authentic Italian style. La Perla is Verace Pizza Napoletana-certified which means every aspect of production – from the design and temperature of the wood-burning oven to the toppings and the ingredients of the crust – is authentic. Fresh ingredients are layered on handmade dough, then cooked for 90 seconds in a domed-shaped, wood-burning oven that reaches temperatures of up to 1,500 degrees. The intense heat and fire impart a slight rustic char. The result is a luscious blend of flavors on a light and tender crust. Buon Appetito!

IN 1950, CREATURES FROM ANOTHER WORLD SELECTED McMinnville, Oregon, planet Earth as a place of curiosity and research. Their vehicle was nearly thirty feet in diameter and shaped like a flying saucer or a garbage can lid. If it weren’t for Mr. and Mrs. Paul Trent out feeding the rabbits on their farm that day, this foray would have gone unobserved by humans, and the saucer pilots would have quietly collected data before reporting back their observations.
