The Original Barone's rectangle pizza is made with fresh ingredients daily.

Hey, West Valley  pizza lovers, this one’s for you. The original rectangular shaped Barone’s pizza that made its mark in Sherman Oaks circa 1945 as the first restaurant to offer pizza in So Cal, has now made its way to Woodland Hills.  Barone’s The Pizzeria Express, independently owned by  father and son team Mike and Stephen Monteleone, is bringing that famous thin crust pizza with their secret dough and famous sauce to a new level — and they deliver as well.  The duo acquired the rights to use all the original recipes from the  Barone’s Famous Italian Restaurant in Sherman Oaks (which relocated to  Oxnard St.in Valley Glen) and is still owned by Mike’s father, Frank ,and brother Tom.
