* – A Boise Mom contributor favorite

Flying Pie

Multiple locations

A hometown tradition! What sets Flying Pie apart is their sourdough crust that is to die for. They also usually have a pinball machine or two in the establishment, and you can’t forget the habanero season. They have recently just brought back the “make a free pizza if your name is . . . ” Usually they do this with names, but this week there was one for making a free pizza if you play the trombone. How cool! Keep your eyes peeled on their sign when driving by one of their many locations throughout the valley.

Idaho Pizza Company

Multiple locations

Idaho Pizza Company has locations spread out all over. They have the best salad bar and the best Ranch. Their lunch specials can’t be beat. Don’t forget to grab a punch card: buy 10 lunch specials, get one free. Also, Wednesdays are double punch days. What? Great food and a deal. Now that’s what we like to hear.

The Wylder

501 W. Broad St. Boise, ID 83702

The Wylder has a “fancier” feel. The vibe and decor in the Wylder is stylish yet inviting. They also have a small patio that is great on warmer days. They pride themselves on premium locally-sourced ingredients. Their pizzas are a crispy thin crust, and they really get crafty with their combinations. This is a great place if you are looking for a step above the average pizza.

Keep in mind they do get busy on weekends. Definitely make reservations, especially if you have a larger party.


2 locations in Boise

Guido’s is known for their “New York Style Pizzas.” These pizzas are characterized by their large, thin crusts that are both crispy and foldable. Yes, foldable. They offer whole pizzas or pizza by the (huge) slice. Their prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is relaxed.

Our Content Coordinator recommends the White Pizza. It is made with olive oil, sundried tomatoes, fresh basil, parmesan, and mozzarella. It is sure to be a family favorite.

Pie Hole

2 locations in Boise

Pie Hole is known for its casual and fun atmosphere and being a local late-night savior (open until 3 am most nights). Oh, and stickers. So many stickers. They also make for a great quick bite to eat after a Steelheads game. The famous potato bacon pizza is a favorite, and it doesn’t get more Idahoan than potatoes on pizza. During peak hours, it can be pretty crowded, but they do have a patio with plenty of room.

Pie Hole is more of a pizza-by-the-slice establishment, but whole pizzas are available for order ahead of time.

The Front Door*

105 S 6th St Boise, ID 83702

The Front Door is a local hidden gem. Their pizzas are so delicious, and they have a variety of options to choose from. They are located in the heart of downtown Boise, right around the corner of the Basque Block. They offer soups, salads, pasta, and sandwiches. Everyone can find something to eat there, and there’s plenty of room for the family.

Our Content Coordinator recommends the “Goodfella” Pizza with artichoke hearts and pesto. Yum!

Diggs Pizza*

4646 S Cole Rd. Boise, ID 83709

On the outside, Diggs Pizza doesn’t look like anything special. However, they have been serving the Treasure Valley for 20 years, and they definitely know what they are doing. It’s considered a “hidden gem” with a loyal following.

One of our contributors recommends the Garlic Ranch Chicken Pizza and the garlic bread.

3 Wood Pizza

10497 Lake Hazel Dr. Boise, ID. 83709

3 Wood is known for using a wood fire oven to cook their pizzas, resulting in a crispy crust and a somewhat smoky flavor. They offer a variety of different options other than pizza on their menu. They also have enough space to cater to families and a great outdoor patio.

LuLus Fine Pizza*

2 locations in Boise

LuLus is a local favorite. It’s a great place to stop after skiing at Bogus Basin or even just for an easy family dinner one night. When it’s warm, they have great outdoor seating, and the community feel is always lively at LuLus. There is plenty of room for families, and they don’t just have pizza, they also offer sushi at the Bogus Basin location. Our Social Media coordinator recommends the Spartan or the (Gluten-Free) BBQ Chicken Pizza. Yum!

Uncle Bob’s

1728 E McMillan Rd. STE 100 Meridian, ID 83646

Uncle Bob’s is a little bit off the beaten path, but they are a family-oriented pizza joint. Started by a father and son, their focus is (and always will be) family. Although pizza is their main attraction, they also offer a variety of menu options. They also have a game room to keep little ones entertained while waiting for pizza. It’s a great choice for a fun and affordable family outing with specials going on every night of the week.

North End Pizza Co.

1513 N. 13th St. Boise, ID 83702

Located in the historic north end of Boise, North End Pizza Co. is in the heart of Hyde Park and offers a casual yet trendy vibe. They focus on using local suppliers for their ingredients. They also aren’t afraid to get creative. Think artichoke hearts with chorizo and a fresh pico de gallo topping. Hmmm? It is always lively on the weekends and a local favorite.


1224 1st St S Nampa, ID 83651

I know I can speak for a lot of locals when I say we all wish they would open up a second location in Boise. But for now, we will have to travel to Nampa for their pizza or stop by when in the area. Messengers offers an eclectic and vibrant atmosphere. They focus a lot on showcasing local artists on their walls. It has definitely become a local community hub in the area. They offer huge slices, so you get some serious bang for your buck. Their sourdough crust option is a must as well.
