This popular pizza spot in downtown Tomahawk serves up delicious homemade pizzas as well as pasta, calzones, sandwiches, and a Friday night fish fry. Build your own or choose one of Bambino’s favorites like the Bambino’s Bonanza, the Luau Pulled Pork, the Meatball Marinara, or the Gyro. Choose from original hand-tossed or thin crust (Bambino’s also offers pan pizzas and gluten-free crusts) in sizes ranging from medium (12 inches) to jumbo (20 inches).

The Haven, Rhinelander

This family-owned restaurant has been making fresh pizzas in Rhinelander for locals and visitors alike for more than 50 years and continues to be a favorite of diners throughout Oneida County. The Haven’s specialty pizzas include the Fritz Deluxe (named for Fritz Diekvoss, who took over the restaurant from its original owners in 1969, this pie features sausage, mushrooms, onions, pepperoni, and green olives) and the Italian Garlic Chicken (garlic sauce, chicken, broccoli, onions, and fresh tomato on an oat bran crust).

Black Bear Bar & Grill, Minocqua

Enjoy a delicious pizza and some Northwoods nostalgia at this cozy log cabin (built in 1947) on the banks of Shishebogama Creek west of Minocqua.

If you’re extra hungry, don’t forget the Pizza Fries or Bear Bread (mozzarella-stuffed breadsticks served with homemade pizza sauce).
