A legit New York-style pizza place in Boise – they keep things simple here and focus on the flavour of the pizza. A classic NY slice or huge 20-inch pie will leave you satisfied. Guido’s knows not to mess with something already perfect, so you won’t find any whacky ingredients here, just the beloved favourites. Pies are hand-tossed and tasty.
As the name suggests, these pies with huge puffy crusts are very much in the Neapolitan-style of making pizza. They load the centre up with toppings to create a pizza that is absolutely bursting with flavour through every single mouthful. For something different, go for the Purple Potato & Bacon pie: roasted purple potatoes, candied bacon, fontina, gorgonzola, fresh thyme, and chili flakes.
Louie’s has over 50 years of experience in serving up authentic Italian pizza to hungry Meridian locals. It’s about time we help put them on the nationwide map or at least let people know they’ve got some of the best pizza in Idaho. Years of family tradition and full flavours help craft the specialty pizzas here. Choose from tons of mouthwatering options, including Pollo Toscana or a tasty Bella Vita.
The Wylder makes “handcrafted, slow batch pizza with soul.” What does that mean, exactly? Well, they serve up amazing sourdough crust pizza. Sourdough pizza has a light, crisp base with a soft, pillowy and slightly crisp crust, made by hand stretching. The toppings here are just as light and absolutely beautiful. Think: Italian sausage and spicy honey. Yes, it’s as delicious as it sounds.
As the name suggests, Hometown Pizza is home to lots of laidback charm and a true neighbourhood feel. The vibes at this local favourite are relaxed and cheery. And, we totally get it. The pizza’s so packed with flavour and loaded with great toppings that we’d feel pretty cheery eating here on a daily basis, too. Order a cold beer or fine glass of wine and prepare to indulge.
This buzzing spot serves a Detroit-style pizza slice which is utterly unique in its crust. It’s deep-dish pizza but is square-shaped, instead of the usual pie size. The key to a classic Detroit pie is the deep pans in which the pizzas are baked, which gives it a crunchy crust and soft base, with caramelised cheese on top. The slices taste absolutely incredible and look just as good.
After a super cheesy slice of New York-style pizza? Head on over to Post Falls and treat yourself to an entire pie at Nate’s New York Style Pizza AKA the New York Pizza Dept. They’ve paired a variety of wines with some of the tastiest, cheesiest, and most well-baked pizza pies in the entire state. The best part is that you can build your own pizza (like the one below), ensuring you get to sample every single one of their mouthwatering flavours and toppings.
