The Oven is one of the best parts of the new Belmar development in Lakewood. This local venture prepares wood-fired pizzas to order, with options ranging from the basic pizza margherita to the more adventurous barbecue chicken pizza. They also offer a new pizza variety every day for those of us who keep coming back for more. I have yet to have anything but the most delicious meal there.
They have lunch specials during the work week, but they're really not necessary, as a 12-inch pizza (enough for two people) runs around $12. Their wine selection, while small, adds a nice touch, as does the patio dining area.
