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.
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:
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.
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.
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:
And if you can’t decide, you can choose one of our specialty pizzas:
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.
In addition to making the best pizza in Lake Norman, we also create authentic Italian dishes. Using traditional recipes handed down through generations, we create many of your favorites:
We also serve delectable sub sandwiches:
Plus, our menu also includes several salads, desserts, calzones, strombolis, and over a dozen appetizers. Moreover, for our younger diners, we have a kids’ menu with items priced at $5 or less.

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:
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.
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.
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.
Everyone has their favorite toppings to create the perfect blend of flavors. At Tony’s, we have plenty to choose from:
Plus, we offer several specialty pizza pies. These include meat lovers, vegetarian, white pizza, or “everything on it” pizza pies. Moreover, we also have rice-based and cauliflower crusts for customers with dietary issues.

If you live in Charlotte, you have lots of choices when it comes to restaurants. However, just because it’s nearby, doesn’t mean it’s tasty. If you’re craving some of the best Italian food Charlotte NC offers, check out Tony’s Pizza. Around since the early 80s, our family-owned restaurants have some of the best authentic Italian food around.
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).
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.
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.
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!
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).
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!
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!
If you’re still wondering about finding the best Italian food Charlotte NC offers, here are few frequently asked questions from our customers.
As mentioned above, we have multiple traditional Italian and pasta entrees including spaghetti and meatballs. Moreover, we have abundant appetizers from garlic knots, cheese sticks and toasted ravioli to more American fare such as wings and fries. Likewise, we have subs, salads, calzones and stromboli.
