Benzonia pizzeria offers a taste of New York

BENZONIA — Upriver Pizza is a little slice of New York City in northern Michigan.

The pizzeria, now in its second year in Benzonia, offers some of the only authentic New York-style pizza found in the area, according to its owner and pizza aficionado, Chris Bertram.

Bertram said that when he and his wife moved to the area, they found it was lacking in the kind of pizza they were used to having when they lived in and around New York.

‘We moved to the New York City area when I was in my mid-20s and I worked in kitchens there, and we got here and there was this lack of New York-style pizza and that’s a piece of what we both grew up with,’ he said.
