It can sometimes be difficult to find Hickory restaurants the entire family will love. Here at Tony’s Pizza, we love serving families in the Charlotte area. We got our start in Brooklyn making delicious New York style pies before our entire family moved south to bring our traditional Italian recipes to North Carolina. Today, we take pride in our six local restaurants, which use the same recipes that our family has passed down through the generations. If you’re on a quest to find the perfect Hickory pizza for your picky family, give Tony’s a try!
When you come to Tony’s, you don’t have to worry about your kids refusing to eat. Take one step inside our restaurant and even the fussiest of eaters will be drooling from the aroma of our pizzas baking! We use fresh ingredients and time-tested cooking techniques to make sure that every order tastes as good as it smells.
Listen, we get it – some kids change their preferred foods more often than the weather. Here, you don’t have to worry about a meltdown. Not only do we make authentic New York style pizza in Hickory, but we also have a variety of dishes on our kids’ menu, including:
Of course, our kids’ menu also includes cheese or pepperoni pizza by the slice. All kids’ meals include a drink served in a reusable plastic cup with a straw.
Our restaurants make a great place for kids to practice dining manners and ordering off a menu, but you don’t have to feel anxious about dealing with a temper tantrum, spilled drink, or other issues. We have kids too, so trust us when we say we understand and love providing a family-friendly place to eat! Our friendly wait staff is happy to support parents whose kids are learning to navigate the world.
Although we love kids, we aren’t just a children’s restaurant. Adults of all ages love us too thanks to our wide range of menu options. Of course, locals know us for our authentic New York style pizza. However, don’t sleep on our Italian entrees. In addition to some of the best pizza around (as well as calzones, and stromboli), we also serve the following pasta dishes:
Our Italian entrees each come with a side salad and garlic knots. Still hungry? We also have an Italian dessert menu that includes tiramisu, cannoli, New York style cheesecake, and limoncello mascarpone cake topped with white chocolate curls.
We’re the perfect option for date night as well. Our casual atmosphere makes first dates less awkward, and our prices won’t break the bank. Even if your date doesn’t go as planned, at least you will have good food with plenty of leftovers to enjoy for lunch the next day!
There’s no shortage of pizza options in the area, and you might be tempted to pull into an old standby like Pizza Hut or Papa John’s. However, one bite of a Tony’s pizza and you’ll taste the difference. We use sauce and dough recipes that have been refined over generations by our dedicated family members. For cheese and other toppings, we use only the best ingredients. Even bad pizza is still pizza… but why settle for a big chain pizza when you could have something that tastes so much better?
When you come to Tony’s, you can also order other foods that the big chains don’t provide. Some may have a few appetizer options like reheated breadsticks or lackluster wings, but you have a huge selection to go with your pizza at our Charlotte pizza restaurants, including the following:
We also have entrée-sized salads in case someone in your family is looking for a fresh vegetable option, as well as a variety of hot and cold subs. You can’t get those items at most big chain pizza restaurants nearby in Charlotte.
If you have any questions about our pizza or other dishes, our helpful Hickory wait staff would be happy to answer them. As a start, here are some of the frequently asked questions we hear:

Just South of downtown Charlotte and North of the suburb of Matthews lies the Galleria Shopping Center. Several stores occupy space in this marketplace offering a variety of merchandise. Easily accessible to major roadways, you’ll also find the Tony’s Pizza Galleria location here.
Americans love pizza and NY Style is their favorite. In fact, the average American eats about 46 slices per year spending $38 billion annually. While you’ll find plenty of chain pizzerias, most can’t deliver the great flavor of a traditional NY pizza pie.
However, Tony’s Pizza is different. Brothers Vinny, Tony, and Mario grew up in a large Italian family in Brooklyn, NY. From an early age, the brothers learned the secrets of Italian cooking. In 1981, the brothers moved to NC taking their knowledge and recipes with them. Today, the brothers operate several Italian restaurants in the Charlotte area serving delicious Italian food.
Pizza requires specific knowledge of dough preparation to create NY style. A mistake during any one of the processes can result in a disappointing crust. For example, the ratio of ingredients can affect the taste. Moreover, underproofing or overproofing the dough can result in a doughy crust. Even the temperature of the oven will influence the final product.
Additionally, one of the most important techniques in NY style pizza making is hand tossing the dough. While some restaurants may roll or spread out the dough, our chefs hand toss our pizza. This ensures our dough has just the right amount of moisture to produce our crispy yet foldable crust.
Then, atop our signature crust, we spread our sauce. We’ve tweaked an old family recipe to produce our tantalizing flavor. Of course, we always use the freshest ingredients. Finally, we spread on shredded mozzarella. Its mild flavor and ability to melt into gooey goodness make it the perfect pizza cheese.
Furthermore, if you’re dining alone or have a crowd, you can enjoy our delicious pizza. We serve it by the slice or in multiple sizes from 10-inch to our huge 24-inch.
Of course, pizza makes a great stand-alone meal, but sometimes you may want to combine it with another dish. These complementing additions offer different tastes for an unforgettable meal:
Today, most pizzerias offer wings too because they pair so well with pizza. Usually, the wing sauces taste delicious alongside pizza and both are portable, handheld foods. At Tony’s Pizza, we serve both traditional and boneless wings in mild, Buffalo, honey BBQ, teriyaki, or sweet chili sauces. So, if you’re also searching for the best wings near you too, give them a try as well!
A salad filled with fresh, crisp vegetables balances the richness of a cheesy pizza nicely. At Tony’s Pizza, you have a choice of 4 delicious salads:
Both pizza and pasta are comfort foods, meals that give us a happy feeling. These types of foods help our bodies decrease the stress hormone, cortisol, and increase the feel-good hormone serotonin. Tony’s Pizza serves several traditional pasta dishes:
Choosing a dessert after your meal is a delightful experience offering a refreshingly distinctive flavor. Tony’s Pizza has several delightful sweet treats to finish off your meal:
For some Italian restaurants, pizza, wings, salads, pasta dishes, and desserts would be enough variety to offer their patrons. However, we understand that sometimes you may be in the mood for something else. That’s why we also offer garlic knots, cheesy garlic bread, jalapeno poppers, mozzarella sticks, and several other appetizers. Plus, our menu options also include stromboli and calzones.
In addition, we also offer both hot and cold submarine sandwiches in 8 and 12-inch sizes. All of our subs have lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, onion, banana peppers, oil, and vinegar. Of course, if one of these toppings doesn’t appeal to you, let your server know and we’ll leave it off.

Craving a slice of authentic New York pizza but not in the mood to make the trip up north? While we think it’s worth a quick flight, we also understand a slice of pizza might not justify a pricey plane ride. Fortunately, you can find New York pizza right here in North Carolina. Thanks to Tony’s Pizza, you can skip that flight and even skip the car ride for your own slice of New York-style heaven. See for yourself with our New York pizza delivery (click the Start Delivery Order button above), available at our locations in Mooresville, Charlotte, Hickory, and Huntersville.
For many foodies, pizza is never the same at any two places. Every state has its own take on the circular-shaped classic, making it unique from all other versions. New York-style pizza is one of the most popular, but do you know why?
In the bustling state of New York, most people have to eat their meals on the go or within a short lunch break. To make this easier, New York-style pizza was crafted for an easy handheld snack. It is large and thin, perfect for folding into a sandwich of cheesy goodness. It’s still just as crispy and delicious as other styles, but thinner and more flexible for ease of eating.
New York pizza also has more ingredients in the dough and sauce than other traditional pizzas. This can also make it taste a little different. The thin texture of the crust takes more time and preparation, as we carefully hand-toss every piece to perfection. Tony’s sauce has its own unique taste that you can’t find anywhere else. Why? It’s a secret recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation in our family. You won’t find a pizza or sauce quite like ours at any chain restaurant because we know just what is meant by “New York-style.”
While we encourage you to grab an entire pie so you have enough for everyone to try, we also offer pizzas by the slice for a quick lunch break takeout or yummy snack. Several of our pizzas are offered by the slice, including the two classics: pepperoni and cheese.
Pizza isn’t the only food item we deliver right to your doorstep. While you may not have to drive to New York for it, we believe in easy access to whatever food you’re feeling. Tony’s has partnered with Doordash to deliver whatever Italian cravings you may be having straight to you, available for online order from open to close! Thus, if you’re in the mood for something else, try out one of our Italian entrees, salads, subs, or desserts!
As mentioned, Tony’s has more than one Italian dish to offer, even for delivery. When we traveled to the U.S. from Italy, so did many of our family recipes. Check out the list below or our menu on Doordash to see what authentic Italian catches your eye.
Along with a wide range of menu items, we try our best to accommodate a wide range of dietary needs. For those without gluten in their diet, we offer gluten-free and cauliflower crust (keep in mind, we are not a gluten-free certified facility). For dairy restrictions, we offer vegan cheese.

Feeling hungry and looking online for a delicious pizzeria near me? Luckily, you’ve found the right spot to hit the spot – Tony’s Pizza! Truly, it used to be nearly impossible to find authentic NY-style pizza in North Carolina. After all, that hand-tossed chewy yet crispy crust is challenging to replicate. Fortuitously, 3 Italian brothers who grew up in Brooklyn decided to conquer that challenge and then brought it down to the Charlotte and Hickory area.
Speaking of hand tossed, all of our NY-Style pizzas are handmade and created with the freshest ingredients possible. As a locally-owned restaurant, we know the importance of keeping our business in the community whenever we can. Therefore, we do our best to source our ingredients from nearby. Thus, our pizzas are fresh and prepared daily.
Likewise, as a family-owned business, we use family recipes for our secret sauce blending years of practice and perfection. Then, we top your pizza with your choices from our extensive topping menu.
Here are some of your many choices:
Perhaps, you’d rather truly relax and let us pick the toppings. If so, choose one of our 5 specialty pizzas.
Moreover, we also have cauliflower and rice-based crust pizzas. Keep in mind, since we prepare all dishes in the same kitchen, cross-contamination is possible.
While pizza is our specialty, we have lots of other menu items as well. For instance, our appetizers include favorites like wings, garlic knots, mozzarella sticks, fries, meatballs and toasted ravioli. Likewise, we offer salads, subs, calzones, strombolis, and authentic Italian entrees. Better yet, finish your meal with one of our sweet desserts – tiramisu, cheesecake, cannoli or limoncello mascarpone cake. Or, simply make the desserts your entire meal!

When you’re searching online for good pizza near me, you’ll likely get an overload of results. Trying to figure out who truly has the best pizza near you is a bit of work. At Tony’s Pizza, we’d like to make it less work and more fun with a taste test! So, drop by or order to-go and we suspect you’ll get your answer to has the tastiest pizza in the Charlotte and Hickory area.
Clearly, us saying we have the best pizza nearby begs the question: why is Tony’s Pizza so good?
For starters, we’ve been designing delicious pizza for over 30 years and counting. Italian brothers Vinny, Tony and Mario began their pizza-making journey in Brooklyn, New York. In 1981, they moved south and opened their first pizzeria. From there, they expanded their NY-style pizza prowess to over 15 locations throughout Charlotte, Hickory and the Triad in North Carolina.
To help ensure that you can find good pizza near me, our team sculpts our masterpieces from scratch. We start with homemade dough that we hand toss ourselves just like you see in the movies! Next, we smooth on our secret recipe of homemade sauce. Then, we sprinkle on low-moisture mozzarella (no soggy pizzas!) all the way to the edge of our delightful pies. Of course, we also customize it with fresh toppings. Finally, we bake our NY-Style pizzas in specialty ovens to help get that crisp yet chewy texture that our patrons love.
Here are some of our toppings to choose from:
Better yet, if you can’t decide – choose a specialty pizza.
Yes, we’re speaking of the NY Boroughs on our home turf. This one is for our meat lovers and covered in sausage, pepperoni, bacon, beef, and ham.
Craving your veggies? Try this delicious serving topped with mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, and black olives.
Ever heard of white pizza? It’s pizza without tomato sauce. Instead, we load up our Pizza Bianco with mozzarella, ricotta, and garlic.
Want a little bit of all of it? Choose The Worx. With sausage, pepperoni, beef, Canadian bacon, black olives, mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers, it aims (and we think succeeds) to please!
Currently, food with a little kick is in. Enjoy our newest pie: Spicy Buffalo Chicken. We top it with onions, bacon, cheese, chicken, and our specially made buffalo sauce.
Moreover, we have plenty of sizes to suit your palette or party. Opt for pizza by the slice or order any of our NY-style pies in multiple sizes of 10″, 15″, 17″, 19″, and 24”. Speaking of parties, our super-sized 24-inch is perfect! Similarly, we have party trays of our authentic Italian dishes as well.
Also, we offer a variety of other crusts for our guests with dietary restrictions. Choose from our rice-based or cauliflower crust as well as vegan cheese. Keep in mind, while we attempt to avoid cross-contamination, our kitchen is not a gluten-free facility. Flour does tend to fly around when we’re making our pies.
Although, pizza is in our name, we have multiple other menu items at Tony’s. For instance, our homemade authentic Italian dishes are another reason we’re one of the best restaurants nearby. We offer spaghetti, baked ziti, parmigiana, lasagna, ravioli, calzones, and strombolis. To complete your Italian meal, add a dessert such as: cannoli, tiramisu, cheesecake, or limoncello mascarpone cake.
If you’re feeling something a little less Italian, choose a sub (although we have Italian subs too!) or salad. Additionally, we offer lots of appetizers to start your meal or to make a meal. Favorites include toasted ravioli, garlic knots, wings, meatballs and breaded mozzarella sticks. Check out our full menu here (be sure to select the location nearest you).
Likely, you still have a few questions about your search for good pizza near me. Luckily, we have answers and a few fun facts!
People love their pizza and this is a highly debated topic. Of course, we’re a bit biased to NY-style but here is a breakdown of some of the most popular pizzas in the U.S.
Generally, and by a small margin, most Americans prefer thin over thick crust. Cheese wins out on the favorite topping with pepperoni coming in at a close second.
It’s not surprising to know that Americans love their pizza. However, it may be shocking to know that on average they eat over 6000 slices in a lifetime. That’s a lot of pizza but we get it. Let us help you reach that average today! (Well, not all at once.)

Although across the border in South Carolina, most real estate experts consider Fort Mill a suburb of Charlotte. Located off Interstate 77, it’s a quick drive to downtown and other surrounding suburban towns. Thus, when searching for the best pizza Fort Mill offers, you may find it in North Carolina.
Generally, many consumers will drive a short distance to dine. Thankfully, just 15 minutes away from Fort Mill, you’ll find great-tasting Italian food. It’s here in the nearby town of Ballantyne that you’ll find Tony’s Pizza.
Since 1981, we’ve been serving delicious Italian entrees and NY-style pizza. Our traditional cooking style began many years ago in Calabria, Italy. When our family immigrated to America, we continued making these Italian dishes in our restaurants.
Today, Italian food remains popular in America. That’s why you’ll find many favorites such as spaghetti, lasagna, and parmigiana on our menu. We also serve strombolis, calzones, and subs. Of course, we also serve NY style pizza.
While across America you’ll find different styles, NY style pizza remains the most loved. Undoubtedly, its uniqueness begins with the crust. NY style has a crispy, yet chewy crust that you can fold in half. Our pizza menu has something for everyone:
Plus, you can customize any pizza by adding one of our many toppings. Additionally, we offer both a cauliflower and rice-based crust for customers with dietary restrictions.
Pizza pie is one of Americans’ favorite foods with about 93% of Americans eating pizza at least once a month. Below, we list some reasons why consumers love it so much:
Many scientists have studied why people choose to eat pizza frequently. Thus, you can read about umami taste, Maillard reaction, and compounds that stimulate the pleasure centers in our brains. However, the simple fact is that the combination of ingredients is just plain delicious.
Generally, pizza pie is an inexpensive meal option for most families compared to other take-out options. Typically, the rule of thumb is 3 slices of pizza per adult and 2 per child. Usually, a large pie contains 10 slices and the average 2023 price for this size pie in NC is $17.35.
However, you’ll find price variations between pizzerias due to pie size and choice of ingredients. For example, some pizzerias use less cheese or a cheese blend to cut the cost of their pizza.
One of the great aspects of pizza is that you can change the flavor with the addition of toppings. For example, adding certain types of meat can impart a spicy, salty, or smoky flavor. Vegetable toppings can also give your pizza pie a new flavor. Adding jalapeno, banana, or bell peppers can make your pizza spicy, tangy, or sweet.
Moreover, many pizzerias now offer different crusts than traditional wheat to meet dietary restrictions. Often you can find both rice-based and cauliflower crusts.
Freshly made pizza can be a healthy choice. It contains 12 grams of protein, lycopene, and trace levels of vitamins and minerals:
Plus, adding vitamin-rich vegetable toppings can increase your nutritional intake.
Scientists have conducted experiments to see what neurochemicals consumers’ brains release when dining. While eating in general produces particular chemicals, munching on pizza increases pleasant feelings.
Typically, you can choose from many different options when choosing a restaurant. When searching for pizza Fort Mill options, visit Tony’s Pizza. Below, we answer a few questions about our business.

We get it. Authentic New York style pizza is sometimes hard to find. We also understand that when you want it, you want it done right. After all, most people (especially New Yorkers) are very passionate about crispy, yet chewy, Brooklyn style pizza that gives them a taste of home. Thus, if you’re searching online for New York style pizza near me, our team at Tony’s Pizza is here to help!
After all, our owners originally made our NY style pizza in…New York! From there, we brought our family recipes down to North Carolina to share that taste of home throughout Charlotte, Hickory and even the Piedmont (at our sister store, Mario’s Pizza).
Generally, when folks are talking about pizza styles, they typically think of two main types – NY-Style Pizza and Chicago-Style Pizza. In reality, there are lots of other types out there but these tend to be the two that most pizzerias attempt to master.
However, master is the keyword. Especially, this is true with the New York Style pizza near me that you’re searching for in the NC area. Just because someone decides to make it, doesn’t mean they know how to make it best. With a thin and chewy yet crispy crust, this masterpiece requires some special ingredients and special handling.
Notably, hand-tossing this crust is key. This method evenly spreads out the dough into it’s iconic thin layer. Then, chefs place specially blended tomato sauce, low-moisture cheese and other tasty toppings on top.
Conversely, Chicago-style pizza, aka deep dish, has a much thicker crust. It’s sauce and toppings are chunkier and layered. Many folks pull out a fork to eat it as opposed to folding it like you can do with a NY-style slice. In fact, that probably wouldn’t end too well.
Since you’re searching for New York style pizza near me, we’re going to assume we’re in like company and be honest. We get that other folks like other styles but we think NY-Style is hands down the best. If you’re wondering why, here’s what we think.
First, a lot of folks think it’s superior because of the water in New York. However, we feel it is more related to the recipe. Through the generations and continents, we passed our recipes down all the way from Italy to New York. First, we opened a pizzeria in Brooklyn. Then, we headed to the North Carolina coast for a bit. Finally, we settled in the Charlotte area and the Triad where we definitively discovered that you don’t have to have New York water to make authentic NY-style pizza.
Plus, we use the traditional cooking methods of specially-made ovens that give our crust that chewy crispness our customers crave.
Of course, we love pizza. Although, if you’d like to enjoy the palette of a New Yorker a bit, there are some other great foods to try as well. You can find variations throughout Charlotte and the Triad including some at Tony’s and Mario’s Pizza!
In fact, we have lots of other delightful dishes including meatballs, fried ravioli, wings, stromboli, calzone, lasagna…check out our menu for a full mouth-watering list!
If you haven’t tried our fare yet, you may have some questions. Here are a few our customers ask most frequently.

Close on the tails of burgers, pizza is one of the second most popular fast foods in America. With a crispy crust, tangy sauce, and melty cheese, the flavorful favorite is tough to resist. Although, with so many pizzerias to choose from, how do you pick the best pizza Huntersville offers?
There may be plentiful pizzerias in your town. However, not all have the best pizza Huntersville offers. Furthermore, the style of pizza is as important as the toppings. Whether you’re craving a big slice of NY-style pizza or a deep dip into Chicago style, popular Italian restaurants have similar must-haves:
“Definitely service with a smile, Employees and food were outstanding. Pizza and wings were the best I’ve had in a good while. Definitely going to be coming back when I get the chance.” – Tony Church
“Best Pizza in Huntersville. The Decor is tight also all NYC stuff! Been there, 300 times at least! Will be back! It changed owner’s, while I was still in NC! Pizza didn’t change! Yum.”– Michael Hartman
Of course, our specialty is delicious NY-Style pizza. Likewise, we offer many other delicious Italian dishes, appetizers, salads and desserts including: subs, calzones, stromboli, and parmigiana, meatballs, wings, cannoli, cheesecake and limoncello mascarpone cake.
Mostly, excellent Italian fare begins with traditional recipes from the old country. Tony’s Pizza traces their roots to Calabria, Italy.
Similarly, we also understand the importance of value and taking your family out to eat. Thus, we offer a kid’s menu with options for $5 and under along with daily specials for adults.
Let’s face it, we all tend to lead busy lives. Ordering online is convenient. Therefore, Tony’s offers online ordering at all our locations. Choose to pick up your meal or have it delivered to your door. Whichever you choose, you’ll save time and get some great tasting pizza!
While these pizzeria must-haves are important, let’s dig deeper into the best pizza Huntersville offers. After all, what really makes one restaurant’s pizza better than another? Below, here’s what we think makes the best tasting pizza.
Notably, fresh and preserved ingredients taste differently. When processed, these ingredients contain sodium, sugar, and preservatives to increase food’s shelf life. Unfortunately, these additives mar the true flavor. At Tony’s, we use the freshest ingredients possible.
Soggy, tasteless crust ruins any good pizza even if the toppings are superior. Whether you like thick or thin, best pizzas begin with well-crafted crust. Three characteristics that make the perfect crust are:
Hand tossing it a bit doesn’t hurt either. Another art we’ve perfected at Tony’s Pizza!
Once you perfect the base of your pizza, sauce is the next critical element. Perfectly seasoned fresh tomatoes enhance the overall flavor of the pie.
True pizza lovers hotly debate which pizza toppings are best. Whichever combination you prefer, top pizza places offer plenty of options. At Tony’s Pizza, we have over twenty toppings to customize the perfect pizza.
Another hotly debated topic: wood-fired or gas oven? Each method may impart a slightly different taste. Although, seasoned chefs pay attention to oven temperature and cooking time as well.
In the end, when you combine these qualities, you get a pizza that tastes delicious!
Below, we’ve answered a few of our most commonly asked questions.

One thing that’s so great about North Carolina is that it’s a melting pot of folks from other states. Notably, this is especially true in the Charlotte, Huntersville and Mooresville area. Other than being a beautiful place to live, our mild climate coupled with affordability and economic opportunities draw an eclectic group of folks. Moreover, a large number of people in North Carolina come from New York. Many of these folks still crave food from their hometowns. If you’re searching for the best pizza Mooresville restaurants have to offer, head over to Tony’s Pizza.
Those who aren’t familiar with NY-style pizza, often wonder what makes it so special. After all, there are lots of other types of pizza such as Neapolitan or Chicago.
However, New York-Style Pizza is in a class of its own starting with the crust. We create the dough with a high-gluten flour mixed with water, salt, yeast, and olive oil. Then, we hand-toss it to form a crust that’s slightly thicker around the edges (this is a very crucial step!). Next, our chefs top the dough with seasoned tomato sauce. Typically, ingredients include garlic, basil, and oregano.
Atop our flavorful sauce, the chef sprinkles grated mozzarella cheese. Keep in mind, this mozzarella must be low moisture which gives pizza its stringy characteristic.
Finally, you get to customize your pie with all the delicious toppings we have to choose from. Often, our guests debate about which ingredients make the best pizza. At Tony’s Pizza, we have over 2 dozen delicious toppings to sate everyone’s taste buds.
Once baked, this hand-tossed crust is crispy, yet still foldable so you can eat it on the go.
It’s practically a fact, pizza is one of America’s favorite foods. At least once a week, an estimated 40 percent of the population eats it. Here are a few reasons why we love this Italian dish:
Initially, chefs cooked pizza in coal-fired ovens. Because it was cooked by this method, you could only buy pizza by the pie. Once gas-fueled ovens hit the scene in the 1930s, chefs could pre-bake pizza making slices easy to reheat. Thus, in New York City, all the residents traveling on foot could simply grab a slice of pizza and go.
Nowadays, most pizzerias still sell by the slice. Moreover, as we mentioned earlier, NY-style pizza easily folds still allowing diners to eat as they travel.
Whether you love veggies or meats, you’ll find plenty of awesome toppings to suit your taste buds. From trendy to traditional, mixing different toppings gives your pizza a whole new flavor.
Some people view pizza as junk food. However, it has a combination of protein, carbs and fat which offers a nutritious balance. If you add fresh vegetable toppings, you get a boost of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. So, stop feeling guilty and eat up!
When you eat pizza, your brain releases endorphins. These chemicals boost feelings of happiness. In a sense, eating pizza makes you feel good.
Tangy tomato sauce, crispy crust and stringy cheese. Need we say more?

“My family loves Tony’s Pizza. A large pizza takes up the entire table. Yes that is correct. We just ate from the pizza pan. There were two adults and two teenagers and we took 1/2 of the pizza home. Great sauce that makes my mouth water thinking about it. You will love Tony’s Pizza.”
