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.
The special kind pizza we feature here is from an old Italian recipe. It happened one day as the original owner of this establishment expressed his dissatisfaction with the pizza. "Pshew, what garbage!" he exclaimed. "I'll bet I can make a better pizza than this." So a bet was made.
He recalled eating a great pizza in New York ... so he gave a call to an old friend in NY whose family ran an Italian restaurant and he got their special pizza recipe. After some experimentation with various kinds of toppings, cheeses, and crust, the Northlake Style Pizza was born! He won the bet.
Since then we have carried on the tradition of making a special kind of pizza. We work hard to make your pizza a real taste treat. We use only the freshest and finest ingredients available, such as Real Canadian bacon, Hawaiian pineapple, and all of our cheese is real. And, our pepperoni and beef sausage is specially ground to our own demanding specifications.
Northlake Tavern and Pizza House opened in 1954 at a site just a block west of its present location. With the construction of the Interstate 5 Highway bridge ... Northlake had to move ... so we did to our present location.
