Yankee Pizzeria was a casual Italian restaurant located at 3144 Heights Village in the Cahaba Heights neighborhood of Vestavia Hills. It was founded by brothers Darrell and Mike Hill in 1993. The restaurant's signature pizza was topped with blue cheese and bacon.

Mike Hill was the only known occupant present when an EF-2 tornado struck the shopping center on April 27, 2011 around 2:00 AM. Hill survived. The center, and restaurant, suffered roof and window damage but was able to reopen the following week.

The restaurant closed due to the slow economy on December 29, 2013.
