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.
More than Just Great Pizza
The Forge isn’t about just killer pizza, however. We have an incredible craft beer program with 8-12 of the finest craft beers available at any given time. Add this to a stellar wine program and a creative cocktail menu, and you’ll see why finding an empty seat at our bar can be a challenge!
The icing on the cake for The Forge experience is our unique casual atmosphere. Our professional and knowledgeable, friendly staff provides sincere hospitality to our guests. The energy of our restaurants, from the infectious smiles on everyone’s faces to the emphasis on music for all generations, is accented by the variety of unique seating options available in our restaurants, from classic tables and booths to the bars to our dog-friendly outdoor patios.
