If northern pizza is a favorite of yours then it’s time that you learned a little more about where your favorite food originates from! Fortunately, as the top northern pizza restaurant in Palm Harbor, we can tell you a thing or two about it!

Northern Pizza: The History of Your Favorite Pizza Style

First, if you don’t know what northern style pizza is, allow us to explain…

Northern pizza originates in Northern Italy even though pizza has its roots in southern Italy. The two types of pizza have distinctly different styles but the biggest difference is the type of crust. While southern Italy has pizza that has a thinner crust, northern pizza has a more bread-like crust that is thicker and – in our opinion – more delicious! It’s not just the crust of a northern pizza that’s different, though, the toppings are usually thicker and heartier compared to the thinner sliced toppings you’d find on a more traditional southern Italian pizza.

So, which of these two pizza styles is best? There really is no “best” because different styles of pizza are suited to different people, but we happen to be fans of northern pizza and the thick and bready crust!

Our Northern Pizza Flavor Combinations

We have a wide selection of northern pizza flavor combinations – something for everyone, but a few of our favorites include our:

House Special: Our House Special pizza is topped with cheese, mushroom, pepperoni, green peppers, onions, sausage, and meatballs.

Southwestern: Our southwestern pizza is topped with cheese, fresh tomatoes, onions, meatballs, jalapeno peppers, and black olives.

Philly Cheesesteak: Our Philly cheesesteak pizza is topped with Philly cheesesteak, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, and cheese.

Mediterranean: Our Mediterranean pizza is topped with cheese, feta cheese, ham, black olives, fresh tomatoes, and pepperoncinis.

None of these sound good? If you’re not a fan of the more traditional flavor combinations, we have plenty of fresh toppings that you can choose from and you can pull together your own pizza! Choose from fresh vegetables, cheeses, and meats and we promise that we won’t raise an eyebrow at even the “strangest” ingredient combinations.
