is a Knoxville based, local women-owned artisan Pizza restaurant engaged in the authentic old-world art of making wood-fired pizza.
At Hard Knox Our Mission is to create unforgettable culinary experiences through pizza. That is a tall task, but we believe the world is largely devoid of truly amazing culinary pizza experiences. At Hard Knox we have spent years perfecting our craft in the authentic old-world Italian line of the Pizzaiolo, from which all pizza in the world today is derived. Today we combine these time tested traditions of the original Pizzaiolo’s from Napoli, which date back to the 1800’s, with our exclusive local and internationally inspired contemporary recipes. Everything at Hard Knox is fresh and locally sourced whenever possible, developed in-house, made fresh every day and then cooked at over 750 degrees in our wood fired oven.
