Grab A Slice of Central Oregon at Little Pizza Paradise in Bend
Lately, “it’s been a long day” has become our mantra. The kids’ online schooling was chaotic, the Zoom meetings didn’t stop, and the dog was begging you for the fifth time to go for a walk (to him, humans at home mean playtime). One thing that hasn’t changed in the new normal is that feeling of giddy, childlike excitement when you see pizza boxes on the dinner table. Little Pizza Paradise at the CVSC serves up the best pizza in Bend to keep those moments coming.
The Best Pizza in Bend
Little Pizza Paradise has been a Bend staple since 2004. Two years after it started, “Pizza Pete,” an Italian-trained pizza chef, purchased the business. In 2012, the delicious operation moved into its current location at the Cascade Village Shopping Center––much to the delight of fellow store owners, workers, and patrons.
If you frequented the shop pre-COVID, maybe to have a brew while you waited for your pie, you were immediately hit with the salty, yeasty warmth of pizzas baking to perfection. Even scrolling through pictures of their pies online can cause some serious drooling. And the hundreds of positive reviews don’t lie, citing reasonable prices, perfect crust, and balanced flavors.
What Sets Little Pizza Paradise Apart?
While we’d love to keep this unassuming gem a secret, we’d also love to sing its praises. Here’s what makes it the best pizza in Bend:
Premium, Quality Ingredients
Pizza Pete and his crew only use the finest, freshest premium ingredients in their recipes. Starting with this quality foundation results in a difference pizza lovers can taste.
We did mention that Pete is Italian-trained, right? This carried over into every facet of his business, including the authentic stone deck oven in which every pie is baked to perfection. (It’s the secret to the perfect crust.)
We love options. Little Pizza Paradise does more than regular pies. They also offer deep-dish pizzas, calzones, sandwiches, salads, and desserts (save room for the brownie gelato sandwich). Plus, with the build-your-own pizza option, you can add as many toppings as you like. They even offer gluten-free dough for those who need it.
Beer and More
No pizza shop in Bend would be complete without some brews. Their “Wall of Beer” hosts 20 taps of local and regional beer options. Not to mention the 25-plus bottle and can selections they offer, along with numerous ciders and wines for those craving something a little different. Even better? They have growler fills and beer to go.
The Pizza Perfect End to Any Day
By the end of this, we wouldn’t blame you if you were canceling dinner plans so you can order the best pizza in Bend. Whether you stop by the store or place an order through your favorite food app, LIttle Pizza Paradise is sure to be the perfect end to your day.
