From April Byrd, owner of Lovin’ Oven Pizzeria
Greetings from Lovin’ Oven! Located directly across from the train depot in historic downtown Locust Grove, GA , we offer New-York Style pizza, calzones, pastas, sandwiches, and salads. Open since 2015, Lovin’ Oven is a family owned and operated business that strives to serve fresh, quality food and offer exemplary customer service.
In today’s low-carb, no-carb society, selling pizza can become quite the challenge! We are certainly not ones to shy away from a challenge though, so we began to explore ways to make pizza an option for our customers who are embracing this type of lifestyle. We began to sell our pizza bowl a couple of years ago and have just recently begun to carry a cauliflower crust pizza. We also offer a gluten free pizza crust, which is another great option for customers with dietary restrictions. The cauliflower and gluten free crusts are not made in house, so although they are gluten free items, our kitchen is not gluten free. In addition to these items we have great salads that are made with only the freshest ingredients.
For our customers who don’t worry about those kinds of things, we have a fantastic selection of items on our menu! Our pizza dough and marinara sauce are made in-house daily. If you happen to be walking by, you won’t be able to resist the smell of the fresh bacon, sausage or beef that’s cooking! At the Lovin’ Oven you get to choose what you want and how you want it!
Hungry? Choose from one of our 14” or 16” pizzas. Not so hungry? Then a slice is what you might be looking for, or you may prefer one of our delicious calzones with its creamy ricotta and oh so gooey cheese filling! Any of these will be prepared to your liking when you place your order. We have 17 specialty pizzas, or you may choose to build your own.
Everyone knows that any good pizza deserves a good cold beer! We have 14 beers on tap and quite a nice selection in either cans or bottles. Whether you like a traditional domestic beer or an IPA, you’ll find something that suits your taste buds. Our covered patio is the perfect spot to enjoy a sunny afternoon or warm spring evening while watching the trains go by.
Oh wait, did someone say dessert? You haven’t lived until you’ve tried a slice of our apple pie pizza! This one’s certainly not for those who are watching calories, but it’s so worth the splurge! If you’re looking for something different, then a bowl of spumoni ice cream or an old-fashioned root beer float may be more what you’re looking for!
For those who like trivia, we have that for you too! Every Wednesday night at 7:00, we pair up with Outspoken Entertainment to bring you a mind-challenging evening of fun. Each team competes for a spot in a quarterly tournament held by Outspoken Entertainment and a chance to win $6,000. First, second and third place winners each week receive a gift certificate good for free pizza upon their next visit.
If you’ve been looking for a fun, family-friendly atmosphere with good food, good times, and a good cold beer, then you just might have found your new dining spot!
