Red Oven Pizza Bakery - Universal CityWalk

Are you looking for a quick lunch or dinner with a fabulous homemade taste? Then you need to try Red Oven Pizza Bakery located in Universal CityWalk at Universal Orlando.  In the words of my teenage daughter the pizza “IS AMAZING!”  


With the convenient carry out window you can take your pizza to go or you can choose to eat in the outside dining area. You can sit anywhere and they will bring out your fresh made pizza or salad. While the seating is outside, there is a covered roof with ceiling fans to provide shade and a small breeze. Perfect for those sunny summer days. 
A variety of Red and White pizzas are offered.  (For those who don't know, Red pizza has marinara sauce and White pizza has no sauce but may have a layer of olive oil and seasonings.) There are 3 different salads available including a Classic Caesar, Arugula, and Caprese salad. The salads are large; approximately a 12-inch plate covered 4 or 5 inches high. We did not actually order a salad but the table next to us did and it was big enough to share.  Your drink options include soda, carbonated juice, ice teas, water, beer and wine. The carbonated juices are very refreshing and the fountain drinks are refillable (all options are subject to change).

Red Oven Pizza Bakery opens at 10:30 am and closes between 12 am to 1:30 am depending on the day (hours subject to change). We ate  lunch on more than one occasion and waited about 10 minutes to receive our hot, fresh cooked pizza.  When we thought about going around 9 pm the place was filled and the line was out the door. 

Every pizza is made fresh when you order it. The quality of ingredients are what make these pizzas so wonderful. Filtered Water, Organic Olive Oil, San Mazzone Tomatoes, “00” flour and Buffalo Mozzarella. The Buffalo Mozzarella cheese adds a wonderful flavor and is creamy and stringy just like the mozzarella we are used to eating. The “00” flour means the texture of the flour is extremely fine, this gives the pizza a wonderful crunch with little elasticity. The pizza is cooked in a 900 degree stone lined oven so it does not have the char on the bottom but it comes out a beautiful golden brown. All pizzas are served the same size, 12 inches and 6 slices. You can watch them make your pizza in the open kitchen.


We tried the Big Eye Pepperoni pizza which has large sandwich size pepperoni that cover the entire pizza and the Margherita pizza had so many chunks of San Mazzone tomatoes you got one in each bite; with the tangy taste of the basil it was fantastic!

In my opinion, this is the best place in CityWalk to get a pizza. What's your favorite place to get a slice?

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
