About Our Pizza

“Ideas are like pizza dough, made to be tossed around.” Anna Quindlen

Here in Starkville’s only Tavern and oldest independent pizzeria you’ll enjoy our stuffed Chicago style and hand-tossed New York style pizza. Our sauce is a traditional blend of herbs and crushed pear tomatoes. The pizzas are stone-baked in an old-fashioned deck oven. This gives it the firm crust not found at other establishments that use conveyor belt ovens for speed. We then baste each crust with a buttery mixture of garlic and basil. Please enjoy.

Second City Pizza

Our signature version of this stuffed Chicago style pizza is double-crusted and served in a steel pie pan. The cooking time is longer due to the thickness of this deliciously stuffed pizza pie. We serve a complimentary order of our bread sticks to enjoy with your favorite beverage as you wait. Consider calling ahead of time to get it in the oven if you’re in a hurry.
