New York-style pizza is widely known and a favorite dish amongst foodies worldwide. It gained a lot of its hype through movies and pop culture. Its origins started in New York City’s Little Italy around the early 1900s where it was mostly sold in slices.New York-style pizza slices are typically wider yet thinner than the average pizza. Most pizza restaurants either use wood-fire or coal-fired ovens to produce a unique charred flavor on its crust. This compliments the simple toppings of fresh mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce. There now many New York-style pizza variations including peperoni, vegetables, and other meat toppings.

Northlake Tavern & Pizza House Lively Tavern Providing Specialty Pizzas to adults 21+ (under 21 can order take out) since 1954.
Our specialty pizzas featured in our restaurant are inspired by an old Italian recipe. After many episodes of trial and error, the original owner of Northlake Tavern made a bet that he could craft the best pizza in town. So a bet was made, and the recipe for our speciality pizzas was formulated; a recipe that we still proudly serve here today.
Our owner recalled eating a great pizza in an Italian restaurant owned by an old friend in New York. After receiving their traditional Italian recipe, he experimented with various kinds of toppings, cheeses, and crust recipes, until perfection was achieved, and the Northlake-style Pizza was born! He won the bet.
Since then, we have carried on the tradition of making our own special kind of pizza. We work hard everyday to make sure that each pizza ordered is a real tasty treat that you won't forget. Our restaurant uses only the freshest and finest ingredients available, such as real Canadian bacon, Hawaiian pineapple, and freshly-grated cheeses. Plus, our pepperoni and beef sausage is specially-ground to meet our very specific standards.
Northlake Tavern and Pizza House opened in 1954 at a site just a block west of its present location in Seattle, Washington. With the construction of the Interstate 5 Highway bridge, Northlake had to move to a location closer to the U District, where we are still proudly serving the community as a local pub, sportsbar, and pizza restaurant.
