Company description

Leña (which translates to firewood) is located in Cleveland, Mississippi, USA — the heart of the Mississippi Delta. We make our dough from scratch and bring it to life through traditional proofing practices. Our pizza is inspired by pizzaiolos of Naples, Italy, and we strive for memorable flavor combinations that are enhanced by our wood-fired brick oven. We also offer handcrafted bagels made from scratch and finished off in our brick oven — really bringing out unique flavors and textures.


We're located halfway between Memphis, TN and Jackson, MS, just off the historic Highway 61 — traveled by legendary bluesmen/blueswomen. We offer products unlike anywhere else in the region.
