The city folks who moved out to live in Northridge soon found the fresh country air gave them a big appetite and thin-crust pizzas just weren't satisfying enough. To keep their customers coming back for more, the pizzerias of Northridge adjusted the thickness of their dough bases accordingly, and so Northridge is known for thick crust pizza. Thick crust is one of the truly traditional Italian pizzas along with thin crust, Sicilian, Neapolitan, and the less commonly seen Roman. While all are prepared from the same basic ingredients, they all have distinct characteristics, but ask any Italian and they'll tell you, thick crust is the king of them all.

It's not hard to find an escape from the city as Northridge is surrounded by plenty of superb countryside. To see some of the best of it though and do something completely different at the same time, you should head twenty-five miles west to Thousand Oaks. In Thousand Oaks, you can go hiking through Wildwood Park to see the Paradise Falls, where there's a super swim pool you can leap into to cool down. After you've dried off, pay a visit to the Malibu Wine Safari Ranch on the outskirts of town where there's wine tasting and exotic animals like zebras roaming around. When it's time to eat, check out D'Amore's Pizza on Thousand Oaks Boulevard. They make superior Italian-style pies.
For a family fun day away from Northridge, Santa Clarita is hard to beat. You can let loose a few screams and rid yourself of any accumulated stress with a visit to the Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park where just looking at the roller coasters, never mind riding one, is likely to induce a panic attack. If it's summer when you go then you can get a damper thrill in the Six Flags Hurricane Harbor waterpark so long as you take your swim things with you. If you're not into theme parks or prefer not to be around too many people then take a hike through the famous rock formations of the Vasquez Rocks Natural Area before having a pizza at Chi Chi's on Soledad Canyon Road.
