• PizzaRev Opens at 6301 Line Avenue PizzaRev, a build-your-own artisanal pizza shop has opened in the former Anvil Bar & Grill location at 6301 Line Ave. Local restaurateurs Mark Florsheim and Cassidy King are excited to offer Louisiana’s first PizzaRev. “We’re eager to introduce this new dining experience to the Shreveport community. We are bringing a new and affordable concept to pizza, while providing a fun and welcoming atmosphere for everyone,” added Florsheim.
PizzaRev offers things like fresh-pressed, homemade dough, locally sourced ingredients, all-natural cheeses, and vegan and gluten-free options. The eatery offers a fully-customized dining experience that allows guests to craft a personal pizza, including any of the 35-plus toppings for one price. The restaurant also serves custom entrée salads. The taproom boasts 41 draft beers, signature cocktails and a variety of wines.
Most unique to PizzaRev, and what enables the restaurant’s incredible speed of service, is the custom-built, 900-degree, stone-bed oven. Guests watch the dancing flames in the background as their pizzas are fired to a perfect, Roman-style crispiness in less than three minutes. Exposed ceilings, concrete floors and natural tones offer a minimalist yet inviting atmosphere. Call 318-606-5072 or visit pizzarev.com/locations/pizzarev-shreveport for more information.
