Lost in a Forest Wood Oven Pizza Place 

If you’re looking for amazing wood-oven baked pizza and a relaxed atmosphere, take a little drive up Greenhill Rd to Lost in a Forest, located in the charming town of Uraidla.

We first visited not long after it opened in 2016 and we’ve been dropping by for a visit or takeaway ever since. It’s a great spot for families as it offers unpretentious indoor dining and relaxed outdoor dining and kids can have a play on the lovely grassy areas and explore the little garden. 


Lost in a Forest is situated inside a 130 year old church which feels more like home than a restaurant with second-hand chairs, rustic tables made from old doors, and plates from nana’s house while the walls are adorned with silhouettes of leafless trees and owls.

In winter, a combustion fire roars away creating a warm and inviting setting that adds to the charm of the old former church with its beautiful cathedral ceilings and stained glass windows and quirky features like old bottle light fittings.  Don’t expect to find fancy cutlery or plates here – this is a place where people come to enjoy catching up with family and friends over good food and wine. 

There is also an upstairs mezzanine for larger groups of visitors.

The courtyard area has undergone a few changes in the last few years but the stunning wrought iron gates remain and a new fire pit (the old one was stolen) takes centre stage on colder days. The lovely courtyard area has relaxed bar seating and is flanked by rows of beautiful trees, a lawn area and herb planters. 

The menu is simple but revolves around pizza which is perfect for pizza lovers. I always opt for a Margherita Pizza wherever I go and I can say this is the best pizza I’ve ever had. It is consistently good and the pizzas here even get the tick of approval from chef Marco Pierre White, so you know you’re onto a good thing.

Along with firm favourites like the Bacon n’ Cheese and Buzzbomb pizzas, you will find more exotic pizza offerings which change from time to time. There’s also bread, salad and usually one dessert offering plus an extensive beer, wine and spirits menu.

There is no kids menu but if your child likes pizza, you won’t need a kids menu! The pizzas are uniform in size and while they may look small, they are surprisingly filling. We average one pizza per person in our family and can only just fit in dessert after a visit here.

They do offer gluten-free options also.

The service is also friendly and it’s a lovely spot to relax and enjoy Hills hospitality while savouring delicious pizza and wine in very relaxed surroundings.
