The Forge opened in January of 2013 in Oakland, California to rave reviews, and we’ve been growing ever since! With three thriving locations and a fourth in the works, The Forge features wood-fired cooking specializing in Neapolitan-style pizza and American classics. We always use the best quality local, organic, and seasonal ingredients, including high-quality 00 organic flour from Central Milling and our own naturally made and maintained leaven. This leaven, used instead of commercial dry yeast, can take on the living flavor of the environment in each of our restaurants.

What else is our secret? Nearly 80% of our menu items are prepared using the imported Italian Valoriani oven, which allows us to create a pizza like no other! From our famous slightly charred crust exploding with texture and flavor to our hard variety of cheeses that can stand up to the heat of our 850 degree-oven, The Forge boasts its own unique twist on classic Neapolitan-style pizza.
