A guide to the Driftwood Oven (mobile) pizza tour

Driftwood Oven returns to its roots and hits the road with a brewery tour this fall. Here are the dates and locations they’ve announced.

Back in its infancy, you could only find Driftwood Oven’s mouth wateringly good wood-fired pizza in its roaming truck.

Now, to celebrate its four years slinging ‘za, Driftwood Oven is returning to its humble beginnings with a series of mobile events. Driftwood is teaming up with old friends, appearing at breweries and favorite hangs through September and October. 


A history of Driftwood Oven

Driftwood Oven got its start as a mobile wood-fired oven, regularly “drifting” its way over to Roundabout, Grist House, and Staghorn Cafe. After a few years of pop-ups, Driftwood opened its brick and mortar location in 2018

Since opening its doors, the pizza joint has expanded its menu to include salads, sandwiches and small plates as well as New York style-square pies. The truck gained local notariety, and the storefront even got a shout out from Chrissy Teigen.

Itching to get back to its roots (or rootless-ness), Driftwood is returning to its original form for a limited tour of Pittsburgh breweries and cafes. 

Tour Details

Taking place primarily over the weekends, find Driftwood’s mobile wood-burning oven at these locations throughout September. Tickets are not required for this event, and pizza is first come, first served.
