About Northern Lights Pizza Company

In 1994, Kerry and Sandy Petersen, owners and founders of Northern Lights Pizza Company®, had a vision and $3,000 and started their first pizza shop in Clive, Iowa. They bought some flour, cheese, imported spices, and other high-quality ingredients with a modest amount of money and began selling our pizzas door to door. They continued to work hard, put all profits back into the business, and expanded to six locations across the Des Moines metro area. By 2006, they opened their location in Kansas City. In 2015 they opened the first “express” convenience store location called NorthernLights Pizza DASH®. Today the company has 16 traditional and “DASH” sites and is on track for fast-paced growth throughout Iowa and the Midwest. Northern Lights Pizza® also provides strong support for local charities like Hope Ministries and YMCA Supportive Housing to fight hunger and homelessness in the Des Moines metro area.

Today Northern Lights Pizza Company® is still on “a passionate pursuit of pizza perfection,” starting with their homemade signature TastyCrust®, all-natural pizza sauce, fresh-cut vegetables, and 100% real cheeses. This dedication to quality first will never change!

Northern Lights Pizza’s® franchise locations are locally owned and operated. Every franchise owner works hard to support their local communities with the highest quality of products and services. Northern Lights Pizza® has become THE local favorite in every community they serve with their exclusive, one-of-a-kind flavors that all ages crave. Homemade signature TastyCrust®, mouth-watering garlic butter breadsticks, and, let’s not forget, the famous ScoobySnacks are, to name a few.
