Grace and Hammer Pizza

Grace and Hammer

Savor Slices at the Church of Artisan Pizza

Since 2019, Grace and Hammer has been serving slices of pizza that are nothing short of divine. This Redmond pizzeria can be found in a former Presbyterian church, boasting a white steeple, stained glass windows and bells that ring every Friday evening.

The church building, completed in 1912 and declared a historic site in 1976, has witnessed various phases of life, from congregations and hymns to dance classes and weddings. In 2019, this landmark building found new life as a temple of dough and cheese thanks to the vision of Chad and Cinnamon Nemec, who fell in love with the beautiful church after moving to Central Oregon from Austin, Texas. Their belief in community and their background in the restaurant industry brought this charming pizzeria to life.

Walk through the doors and find a one-of-a-kind ambiance that effortlessly blends the sacred with the savory. Grace and Hammer features a variety of seating options, including comfortable booths and tables that provide an intimate dining experience. For those who prefer the outdoors, the restaurant offers a charming patio area and picnic tables to savor pizza while enjoying the fresh air. Takeout is also available.

The Pizza

Grace and Hammer offers ample pizza, salad and small plate options. The Benevolent Bird pizza is layered with basil-arugula pesto, lemon herb chicken breast, fresh mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, manchego cheese and Italian herbs. The pesto provides a refreshing herbaceous kick and the chicken delivers a satisfying zest. Another standout is the Belltower pizza, adorned with G&H Béchamel sauce, fresh mozzarella, fontina, spinach, artichoke hearts and kalamata olives, finished with a generous crumble of goat feta. The Béchamel sauce, a creamy white sauce made from a roux and milk, provides a luscious and velvety base.

To complement the meal, the simple green salad features fresh mixed greens, red apples and goat feta, drizzled with a house-made Champagne vinaigrette and G&H balsamic reduction—the crispness of the greens is paired nicely with the apples’ sweetness and the cheese’s creamy texture. And let’s not forget the daily bread, a delightful serving of five knots of delicious dough baked with garlic, butter and rosemary, served with a side of house-made marinara sauce. Who can say no to warm garlic bread?

The Drinks

Wine, beer or a specialty cocktail are available. Sip on the High Desert, a refreshing concoction of Crater Lake Vodka, fresh lime juice and ginger beer, or the Ponderosa Pines, featuring Gompers Gin, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and a sparkling finish with club soda.

Grace and Hammer is a spot to find solace in a slice. Whether enjoying a meal in the sacred setting or taking it to go, you won’t be disappointed and might just find yourself becoming a devoted follower of the Grace and Hammer experience.
