Before pizza was made in big, commercial ovens, it was made in wood-fired ovens. This tradition lives on at Wooden Paddle, a pizza and tapas restaurant just a short drive from River Run at Naperville Apartments. Bring your friends and family members; this pizza and the other dishes are meant to be shared.
All About Wooden Paddle
The main concept at Wooden paddle is shareable dining. As at tapas restaurants so common in Spain, the menu features dishes you can pass around the table and pick at as you chat and catch up with friends. This way, you get to try many different dishes rather than just one! Guests like to say it feels like attending a grown-up pizza party.
The kitchen at Wooden Paddle is open. You can watch the chefs top your pizzas, fire them in the oven, and plate your food. Sit at the bar for the closest view or grab a table near the big, open windows.
Top Menu Options
The menu at Wooden Paddle changes seasonally based on the ingredients available. Of course, the staples are the pizzas. Try the Margherita, a classic topped with tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, and basil. Another great choice is the Gettin’ Figgy With It, topped with fig jam, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and mascarpone cheese.
Accompany your pizza with some wood-fired skirt steak or goat cheese arancini. Don’t forget to order a craft beer; they carry selections from 18th Street Brewing, Sketchbook Brewing, and other local breweries.
Finish your meal with a homemade gelato flight or one of the dessert pizzas.
