The Cincinnati-born pizza restaurant Catch-a-Fire Pizza is opening a third location in Lebanon on Nov. 5. According to a press release, this will be the first commercial space to open in Lebanon's new 511 North Broadway development.

The pizzeria originally began as a food truck outside MadTree Brewing in Oakley. In 2015, the company expanded to a cafe space inside the MadTree's Oakley taproom, combining the taproom with their pizza offerings. In 2020, the pizzeria expanded to Blue Ash. The Lebanon location will be the company’s second freestanding brick-and-mortar restaurant, according to Catch-A-Fire Pizza’s website

The restaurant’s two current locations offer various wood-fired pizzas with unique featured pies and specialized toppings, including a Cincinnati Chili Pizza in Oakley and an Oktoberfest-themed pizza that includes bratwurst, sauerkraut and beer mustard in Blue Ash. Aside from pizza, there are also appetizers such as meatballs, potato skins and soft pretzel bites. 

“We have deep roots in Lebanon. My family is from Lebanon and many of my relatives still live there, so we feel very connected,” Catch-a-Fire Pizza co-owner Jeff Ledford said in a press release.

Catch-a-Fire Pizza's Lebanon restaurant will be located at 511 N. Broadway Street. There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m and live music from 5-8 p.m. on Nov. 5 to commemorate the opening.
