The Wedge was the first wood-fired pizza joint in Oklahoma City, but that was the original sister store, still open on N. Western. The Deep Deuce location came years later, but they make the same fantastic pizzas and appetizers. More than wood-fired pizzas, though, what The Wedge did right from the beginning was create delicious food for vegans and vegetarians, as well as those who need a gluten-free diet.
Start with the appetizers for sure. The Wedge Trio is a local favorite, a combination of red pepper hummus, roasted artichoke heart dip and kalamata olive tapenade. The meatballs are outstanding, so you can get them as an appetizer or on your pizza (The American Pie), or both. The Wedge has excellent salads, too, especially the signature salad and The Beet Goes On, a combination of roasted beets, oranges, reggiano, olive oil and herbs.
The pies are some of the city’s favorites, and that’s largely because everything is made fresh daily from scratch. They are popular locally because of their creativity, too. You can build your own pizza if you like, but the signature pies at The Wedge are quirky, creative and delicious. The Truffle-Shuffle is an amazing blend of truffle oil, mushrooms, spinach, roasted chicken and two cheeses. The Wedge could be accuse of hubris for calling their margherita pizza “The Perfect Margherita,” except it’s both true and a play on words. Simple, fresh, interesting ingredients and a wood-fired oven are all that’s required to make delicious pizza.
The Deep Deuce Location has a full bar and handmade Italian sodas. The Wedge opens at 11 a.m. every day except Sunday (10:30 a.m.), and closes at 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 9 p.m. on Sunday.
