Redwood PizzeriaRedwood Pizzeria
Redwood Pizzeria opened in May 2005 by Evan Borthwick and his family. We have since made many improvements – most related to the quality of the food. In early 2007, we upgraded our dough and marinara sauce – as well as all the fresh vegetable pizza toppings – to now be 100% organic. We have also added organic mozzarella cheese (by request). We source most of our ingredients locally, including all our produce and wines. We are NOT a chain, and virtually everything on the menu is prepared fresh.
Our business model is to offer a fresh, healthy, delicious meal at an affordable price. Redwood Pizzeria also is an active member of the local community, sponsoring numerous youth teams and holding fundraisers for many non-profit organizations. Thank you very much for all your encouragement and support, we look forward to seeing you soon!
