Welcome to Little Oven Pizza

Welcome to Little Oven Pizza’s web log! Here we hope to share more about Little Oven Pizza and our culinary philosophies. Both of us (Thad and Dan) are excited to show you the things that inspire us, whether it is the food that we grew up with or dishes from areas of the world we have never visited.

This will be a space where you can read about Little Oven Pizza’s continuing story. We will discuss our influences, feature local farms and suppliers of Little Oven Pizza, talk about life in downtown Merced and even share some recipes; all the stuff that helps us bring you great pizza.

We hope that this will become a fun way for us to stay in touch with other foodies in the Central Valley or those just interested in learning more about how two guys from Philadelphia decided to open a pizza shop in Merced, California. Stay tuned for frequent updates.
