Ogden Valley Events would like to WELCOME Eden’s newest pizza restaurant to town. Ogden Valley Pizza has been open for just a matter of weeks now. Owner’s Ryan and Amy Johnson, though the family is not new to the pizza industry, are new proprietors of Ogden Valley Pizza located in the Eden Plaza. Ryan and Amy were both raised in Bountiful Utah but for the past four years have live here in the Valley in the Patio Springs area of Eden. Ryan’s family roots originate in Eden as his grandmother was born here.
Ryan has operated and managed his own companies as well as managed departments for other companies like Waterscapes and C.R. England. Amy continues to manage one of the Settebello locations in Northern Utah. Combining their business sense with a love for New York style pizza, the Johnson’s are set on success. Helping the family out, several of their children and their son-in-law work at the Pizzeria as well.
Ogden Valley Pizza places a lot of emphasis on fresh and local as most of their ingredients are sourced locally. In addition to that, Ogden Valley Pizza cold-ferments their pizza dough for 48-72 hours, which is made there on location.
In a recent article for the Valley News, Ryan says, “After countless nights throughout the years wanting and wishing for a great delivery service for pizza, (yes, I was raised on pizza… and yes, I have ordered a hot one for my kids more than I can count!) we felt there was a niche and a need here in the valley. Our goal is to deliver a top of the line, handmade, hand thrown pie to the customer that is made with as much local and regional ingredients as we could get our hands on.
Our shop was designed with this in mind. It is small, and laid out in a way to maximize production and minimize overhead, almost the entire basement is laid out and used for dough production! We have an amazing mixer, dubbed “Big Red” that has the ability to run over 200 lbs of flour at a time! Ogden Valley Pizza has spent close to a year focusing almost solely on the dough recipe. It’s based loosely on a New York style pie. One that has amazing flavor, is light and airy, and travels well… I mean that’s the whole point, right? We do not add seasoning to the dough to artificially give it flavor; it’s good because it is done right! From the mountain water to the high quality flour that is used.”
The Johnson’s love living in Ogden Valley and love the small-town feel of life up here in the valley. They invite you to come by and meet the crew, buy a pie, mention Ogden Valley Events, and receive 10% off all take-out orders. Ogden Valley Pizza is bringing fresh, hand-crafted pizza to the Ogden Valley area. Ryan and Amy say, “We pledge to work hard and to add to that small-town, local, environmentally responsible vibe and at the same time- crank the volume knob to 11!” Ogden Valley Pizza offers customers an array of main course pies to choose from as well as several desert options. A full menu is accessible at http://www.ogdenvalleypizza.com.
Starting this week they will take delivery orders for the Eden area to perfect their delivery process and to train their drivers. In the coming weeks, they will branch out to Liberty and Huntsville as they perfect their delivery process to bring you piping-hot pizza to your door with the same level of excellence that you can expect in every pie!
Coming soon: Online and Facebook ordering. Stay tuned!

Ogden Valley Pizza are using a “new” technology in the store for our walk-in refrigerator. They are the first one in the state to use it, and the health department is monitoring it for approval statewide. It’s a system that is a fraction of the cost of traditional walk-ins, uses more then half the energy cost and a fraction of the Freon! Very environmentally friendly!
