Pizza, Calzone and Stromboli

While some people debate whether or not NY-style pizza is authentically Italian, it is authentically amazing and delicious. Certainly, it is also a close cousin of an Italian pie.

Whitney S.

You definitely get your money’s worth! the pizza is delicious & a great experience for kids cause what kid don’t like pizza so a giant pizza always amazes them, Tony’s is a great family restaurant or even good for a date, you can’t loose, I love the place & the food even more!

Sue F

I just made my second trip to Charlotte in a month and I just made my third trip to Tony’s pizza in a month. I am absolutely hooked on their cheesesteaks.

They are huge – the hubby and I can barely finish one. Juicy, tender chopped steak, gooey provolone and lots of grilled peppers, onions and mushrooms stuffed into a super fresh sub roll. It is as good as some that I’ve had in Philly. Really.

Our third visit was for pizza. The XL authentic NY pie was too big to fit on our kitchen table. Once again – really. I thought the sauce had a little too much oregano but I’m the only one who didn’t love it. Four famished family members couldn’t finish this filling food (felt a little like Dr Seuss there for a sec!).

My son is moving from Charlotte next month. There are a lot of things that I’m going to miss – Tony’s Pizza will definitely be one of them. –

Eric M.

We just moved to this area and had been wanting to try Tony’s for several days. I must say we were very pleasantly surprised! We ordered online for pickup and the food was ready on-time and was very hot and fresh even after we got it back to our apartment. We got the Cheesy Garlic bread, which was not smothered in cheese but very sufficient. It was, however, very buttery with a strong garlic flavor. The marinara dipping sauce was some of the best I’ve had. Delicious. We also tried the fried mushrooms which were excellent as well. Our main entree was a 15″ Pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, and black olives. I have to say it was up with the top best 2 or 3 pizzas I’ve ever had. Perfect crust, great sauce, and the mushrooms were fresh! So many places use canned mushrooms and it’s just not the same. –

Some people take pizza very seriously. To prove their skill, some chefs enter a world pizza championship to win a prestigious award. Most of us, however, are just looking for a great-tasting, authentic pizza pie. When looking for the best pizza in Lake Norman, visit Tony’s Pizza. We’re located at 688 Bluefield Rd Mooresville, NC 28117. Or, order by phone: 704-658-1926.

Characteristics Of The Best Pizza In Lake Norman

While most diners aren’t as discriminating as the world championship judges, we can use their guidelines for finding great pizza. Creating delicious pizza depends on each component blending together for the perfect pie:

1. Crust

Great pizza crust begins with a few simple ingredients. However, kneading, proofing, hand tossing, and baking techniques can have a profound effect on your results. Do everything correctly, and you’ll have a crispy and soft crust. Make one mistake along the way and you could end up with a dense, dried-out crust.

The founders of Tony’s Pizza, brothers Vinny, Tony, and Mario, began perfecting their pizza baking skills at an early age. As members of a large Italian family, the brothers learned the secrets to creating the perfect crust. Today, our restaurants use these same techniques to make delicious NY style pizza.

2. Sauce

The perfect pizza sauce requires the correct balance of fresh ingredients for a deep, robust flavor. It must complement the cheese and toppings without overpowering them. Additionally, the sauce must be thin enough to spread without being too watery (no soggy crusts!).

Here at Tony’s Pizza, we began with traditional recipes our family carried to America from Calabria, Italy. We’ve adjusted the spices to create a flavor unique to our restaurant. It’s the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity you’ve come to expect in a great pizza sauce.

3. Toppings

Using the correct balance of cheese and other toppings to sauce is trickier than you think. For example, adding too many toppings can interfere with baking resulting in a soggy crust. Yet, putting on too few will leave your customers wanting more. However, our chefs know exactly the precise amount for the perfect pizza.

Comparatively, some of our competitors have limited choices of toppings, but we offer a multitude:

  • Pepperoni
  • Sausage
  • Mushrooms
  • Black olives
  • Pineapple
  • Bell peppers
  • Anchovies
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Onions
  • Banana peppers
  • Bacon
  • Basil
  • Beef
  • Beef roni
  • Broccoli
  • Canadian bacon
  • Chorizo
  • Crispy chicken
  • Feta
  • Tomatoes
  • Grilled chicken
  • Green olives
  • Ham
  • Jalapenos
  • Kalamata olives
  • Meatballs
  • Roasted red peppers
  • Salami
  • Steak
  • Sliced sausage
  • Spinach
  • Sun dried tomatoes

And if you can’t decide, you can choose one of our specialty pizzas:

  • 5 Boroughs – meat lovers
  • Greenhouse – vegetable lovers
  • The Worx – a little bit of everything
  • Bianco Pizza – white pizza
  • Spicy Buffalo Chicken – chicken with a savory kick

4. Baking

Improper baking can ruin your pizza. Typically, you need a very hot oven to cook the pizza fast for a soft, chewy crust. Moreover, the longer you leave a pizza in an oven, the more likely you’ll have a dried-out crust. Plus, you run the risk of burning the cheese or other toppings.

Our chefs understand the delicate balance of temperature and timing. Additionally, we use specialty ovens to ensure even baking. Thus, every pizza we make is tantalizingly delicious.

Some Great Reasons To Choose Tony’s Pizza

The town of Mooresville has experienced rapid growth since the creation of Lake Norman. Today, the city is home to a variety of industries and restaurants. One family-owned business, Tony’s Pizza, has a location at 688 Bluefield Road.

Since 1981, Tony’s Pizza has been helping NC families by providing delicious pizza and Italian dishes at reasonable prices. From our humble beginnings in Brooklyn NY and our first store on the Carolina coast, we now serve multiple cities:

  • 688 Bluefield Road, Mooresville
  • 9548 Mt. Holly-Huntersville Road, Huntersville
  • 1530 Overland Park Lane, Charlotte
  • 1605 Galleria Boulevard, Charlotte
  • 14027 Conlan Circle, Charlotte
  • 1832 Catawba Valley Boulevard SE, Hickory

So, how does Tony’s Pizza stand out from the competition? We believe we deliver everything diners are looking for in a restaurant when choosing to eat out:

1. Fresh Ingredients

Often, preserved food includes chemicals that mask true flavors. Moreover, processed foods lose their taste as time passes. Plus, depending on the processing techniques, you can destroy or remove many nutrients. That’s why we always begin by using fresh ingredients for a superior taste and high nutritional content.

2. Authentic Italian Recipes

Our ancestors came to America from Calabria, Italy, bringing family recipes of their favorite dishes with them. Growing up, brothers Vinny, Tony, and Mario naturally learned how to cook these meals. Today, we use many of these same recipes in our kitchens for an authentic taste of Italy.

3. Hand Tossed Crust

One of the characteristics of traditional pizza is a hand tossed crust. While pan and hand tossed crusts begin with the same dough, different techniques lead to varying results. Stretching the dough by tossing it in the air results in a softer, airer crust typical of NY style pizza.

4. Tons Of Pizza Toppings

Everyone has their favorite toppings to create the perfect blend of flavors. At Tony’s, we have plenty to choose from:

  • Pepperoni
  • Sausage
  • Mushrooms
  • Black Olives
  • Pineapple
  • Bell Peppers
  • Anchovies
  • Artichoke Hearts
  • Onions
  • Banana Peppers
  • Bacon
  • Basil
  • Beef

Favorite Italian Dishes at Tony’s Pizza in Charlotte

We dish out some of the tastiest Italian food Charlotte NC has. Here are some of our favorites with a little background on each (in case you were wondering).

1. Ravioli

History traces this dish in Italy at least back to the 1500s. Since tomatoes weren’t around in that area yet, they cooked and served ravioli in a broth. Once tomatoes hit the scene around the 1800s, cooks slowly integrated them into recipes.

Mid 20th century, toasted ravioli appeared. Who first created it, and where, is still up for debate. However, one thing that isn’t up for debate – it’s simply delightful. At Tony’s Pizza, we serve baked ravioli as an entree and toasted ravioli as an appetizer.

2. Lasagna

Lasagna has a history as long as its wavy noodles.  Originating around the Naples area, it spread throughout the region developing different versions. Generally, this meal suited special occasions best since it took so long to prepare from scratch and due to the expense of meat.

Once this tasty tidbit hit America, the process and expense changed. Meat cost less and dried pasta made it easier to create. And again, tomatoes enhanced this dish as well to make it more familiar to what we eat here today. Our team uses family recipes to create our baked cheesy delights.

3. Baked Ziti

Speaking of baked and cheesy, ziti is another popular Italian dish that we serve at Tony’s. Surprisingly, the Italian version sometimes contains a variety of ingredients including scrambled eggs. We keep ours simple yet satisfying with layers of pasta, freshly made tomato sauce and, of course, lots of cheese!

4. Parmigiana

Although many folks think Italian when parmigiana comes to mind, it actually hails from Asia. Originally (and likely due to cost and accessibility), parmigiana used layered veggies. Typically, the main ingredient was eggplant. However, some sources indicate it was zucchini. This dish made it to Italy around the 15th century and evolved more into the dish we eat in the U.S. today.

We offer eggplant and chicken parmigiana as entrees or a sub (we also have meatball and sausage parmigiana subs).

5. Pizza

Of course, it’s hard to think of Italian food without pizza coming to mind. According to some sources, an Italian immigrant opened the first pizzeria in Manhattan around 1905. Since then, the style, crust and even toppings have proliferated across America. At Tony’s Pizza, we serve the iconic NY-style pizza with a magically crisp yet chewy crust. If you’ve never tried it, today is the day!

How Italian Food Made it to the US (and Charlotte!)

In case you were wondering how some of the best Italian food in Charlotte got here all the way from Italy, we’ve put together a little background. It all began in New York City in the late 1800s. Between then and the early 1900s, over 4 million immigrants arrived bringing their culture and robust, delicious family recipes. Unfortunately, the ingredients for these recipes weren’t always readily available. Thus, new dishes evolved with accessible ingredients.

Initially, only the Italian community indulged in these recipes. However, returning soldiers from WWII brought their fondness of pasta back home with them. Shortly thereafter, Italian immigrants opened restaurants to meet growing desire for their pasta and other delights.

Brothers Tony, Vinny and Mario grew up in New York (specifically Brooklyn) enjoying their own family’s recipes that trace all the way to Calabria, Italy. Eventually, they opened a NY-style pizza restaurant upstate then brought it and those delicious recipes to NC. The rest is tasty history!

tonys pizza locations

If you’ve ever lived in or visited New York City, you know there is something special about their pizza. Some say it’s the tap water. Others say it is the decades-old pizza ovens. However, here at Tony’s Pizza, we know the truth: you can have delicious New York style pizza anywhere, even here in North Carolina, if you start with an authentic Italian family recipe and use techniques that have been passed down through the generations. That’s why our pizza restaurants in Huntersville, NC and the surrounding area are fan favorites.

What Makes Our New York Pizza So Special?

In the world of pizza, the two main styles are deep dish (also called Chicago-style) and thin crust (the type most commonly served in New York). “Thin crust” pizza is only thin in comparison to the Chicago deep dish, which is more like a a deep bowl of dough stuffed with toppings. Some thin crust pizza are extremely thin and crusty, while others are more doughy.

In New York City, the thin crust style is flat and chewy, with just a bit of a crispy texture. Slices are typically very large and fold-able, which makes them the perfect street food to grab while you’re on the go. The ingredients go all the way to the edge of the crust, so you get a good cheese/sauce-to-dough ratio.

Our New York style pizzas have all these features, and for good reason; we got started as a small family pizzeria in Brooklyn. Italian food has been our family’s passion for generations, and some of our recipes date back to our family’s origins in Italy. We love sharing our authentic pizza and pasta dishes here in North Carolina and have locations in Huntersville, Mooresville, Hickory, and throughout the city of Charlotte. Our sister restaurant, Mario’s Pizza, also has locations throughout the Triad region, in Winston-Salem, Clemmons, High Point, and Greensboro.
