Deno’s Pizzeria – Our Story

Deno’s Pizzeria

Deno’s Pizzeria has been a fixture in the Lake Grove neighborhood of Lake Oswego since the early 1980’s and has been locally owned and operated by Kathleen Valentine since 1997.

The warm friendly atmosphere attracts families and employees living and working in the area.

Pizzerias are highly recognized for their very special pizza crust. The food is always fresh, with dough and sauce prepared daily from Deno’s own distinctive recipes. And don’t forget the Caesar salads topped with Deno’s famous Caesar dressing (Also, available for purchase by the bottle).

The menu is packed with traditional and specialty pizzas. The BBQ Chicken, Spinach Popeye, Alfredo Combo and Hombre with Chicken or Beef are just a few of our customers’ favorite specialty pizzas. Of course, our pepperoni and combination pizzas are among the traditional favorites.

Looking for wheat or cheese alternatives?
All of our pizzas are available on a great tasting vegan and gluten free crust. We also offer tasty soy mozzarella cheese!

Looking for other choices? Deno’s serves a variety of fresh salads, all made with the freshest ingredients.

During lunch you will also find large pizza slices, delicious sandwiches and hot soup and chili!

Ms. Valentine praises her staff for meeting her mission by providing exemplary customer service, high quality food and drinks and to make sure all her guests have a good time. Maggie, a regular customer, says that Deno’s pizza is the “best pizza in the world”. Bill, another customer who used to live in Lake Oswego, now drives all the way from Vancouver to buy our dough balls!

Community involvement is a high priority for Deno’s, including annual local school fundraisers, sponsoring Little League softball teams and contributing to the local high schools through poster advertisements. Since 1997, Deno’s has held a charitable event for the Community Transitional School for the Homeless. We call it the Angel Tree. Free pizza gift certificates are given to the local elementary school Reading Specialists to encourage students to become better readers.

With membership in the Lake Oswego Chamber, support of the Lake Oswego School District Foundation, sponsorship of local area schools, Little League and other local causes, Deno’s continues to maintain a vested interest in their community and its future.
