Discovered in 1953, pizza is the only food to have been eaten on the moon, blessed by a pope, and endorsed by Olympic marathoner Gezahegne Abera—the "triple crown" of food honors. Eugene’s downtown Cozmic Pizza is located in The Strand (the vintage 1945 building – once an Edsel car dealership) on the corner of 8th & Charnelton, two blocks from the library and bus station.

The owner, Kirk Giudici, also founded Rising Moon Organics ( and is now living out his restaurant dream to create fabulous organic plateaus of food-tromps for you.

A word about Cozmic’s award-winning organic pizzas & salads...

Think Local...Eat Cozmic.

Cozmic serves Jersey-Eugene-style fusion pies that start with Willamette Valley wheat crusts baked on 600° stones. We brush our crusts with buttery extra-virgin olive oil and heap traditional cheeses, tomato sauce, and whatever organic toppings you can think of. We offer wheat-free pies too!

Cozmic Pizza is excellent sustenance for grade-school sleepovers, company gatherings, or coming home a hero to feed the family.

The menu features several specialty pies, including our signature Odyssus - A rich Mediterranean combination of spinach, feta, and artichoke hearts served on a bed of mozzarella transported on a crust of your choice. Or our Orion - Our virgin oil basted crust, layered with our ORGANIC sauce and mozzarella then topped with NATURAL pepperoni and LOCAL sausage. Everybody loves Cozmic’s pies, but…

Also consider a HUGE salad like the Mista - Organic spinach with apples and red onion, a delightful Gorgonzola dressing and garnished with walnuts ($8.75).

Lunch starts at 11am. We offer quick slices (Cheese, Pepperoni, Veggie, Gluten Free, and many specials) and enormous organic salads. Come by for Hoppy Hour (4 – 6pm everyday) to taste some of Oregon’s microbrews or our homemade fountain sodas!

Recently, Cozmic has remodeled and upgraded equipment to meet the demand of its pizza lovers. Have a Eugene microbrew or local wine during one of our many events like Family Night Open-Mic, Science Pub, or performances like 8-time Grammy-Award winner Marcia Ball.
