PizzaRev is set to host a grand opening Dec. 6 that will benefit the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana.

PizzaRev is heating up Shreveport! To mark its grand opening on Dec. 6, the growing build-your-own artisanal pizza shop will host a “Pizzas for a Purpose” fundraising event at 6301 Line Ave. in Shreveport. Guests are invited to custom-built, personal-sized pizza, and 100 percent of the pizza sales will be donated to benefit the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana, a no-kill shelter located in Shreveport.

Local restaurateurs Mark Florsheim and Cassidy King are excited to open the doors to Louisiana’s first PizzaRev. “We are passionate supporters of the organizations that positively impact the communities we serve, and we admire the work that our local Humane Society has done to find pets a great home,” King said.

“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 is on a mission to change how consumers think about pizza with offerings like fresh pressed, homemade dough, locally sourced ingredients, all-natural cheeses and vegan and gluten-free options. PizzaRev offers a fully customized dining experience that empowers guests to craft a personal pizza, including any of the 35+ toppings, for one price. The restaurant also serves custom entrée salads, and a delectable Oreo dessert pizza.  The Taproom boasts 41 draft beers, signature cocktails, and a variety of wines. The bar and patio provide a unique dining experience unlike any other in the Shreveport area.

Most unique to PizzaRev, and what enables the restaurant’s unprecedented 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 will offer a minimalist yet inviting atmosphere, where the focus is on providing guests with an interactive pizza experience unlike anything they’ve ever had.

“The HSNWLA is one big family from all the volunteers to all of the dogs we save. We are blessed to have a community that loves and supports our mission to rescue on” said Courtney Wingate of the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana.
