“Same exact recipe, same equipment, we have a lot of the same cooks as South Lanes Bowling and Pizza, they’ve all come over here and it’s basically the same exact pizza but a new location here at the Village Shopping Center,” said South Lanes Pizza owner, Matt Thornton.

Thornton says he grew up with South Lanes Pizza 40 years ago and he wanted to make sure the tradition stayed in La Crosse.

The original South Lanes Bowling and Pizza closed in June of last year.
