The word “pizza” originated in an Italian city in 997 AD. Since then, this popular savory dish has taken on many forms from flatbreads in Naples in the 19th century to the Margherita pizza invented in 1889. Legend has it that the first pizza ever delivered was to King Umberto and Queen Margherita – allegedly who the first pizza was named after. 

Now pizza is a staple in culinary scenes around the world and if you’re looking for a delicious slice, we’ve got an Idaho pizza that is a must-try! 

Keep reading for six awesome reasons to try pizza in Idaho.

1. The Pizza Is Authentic

Although pizza originated in Italy, authentic, New York-style pizza has its own claim to fame and reputation. It is known as some of the best pizza in the world, outside of its birthplace. This thin-crust pizza was created by Italian immigrants in the 20th century and inspired by the city of Naples. 

The best part is, you don’t have to be in New York to enjoy New York-style pizza. You can get pizza in Idaho with the same great taste, located in your city whether you’re in Boise, Ketchum, or Hailey. 

Wiseguy Pizza Pie serves up some authentic New York-style pizza to satisfy your pizza craving and leave you feeling like you’re in the big apple. 

2. There Is a Perfect Craft Beer to Pair With Your Pizza 

Few things in life are more satisfying than a cold pint perfectly paired with a pizza pie. 

We offer a selection of craft beers from local microbreweries from the Northwest that are a great addition to your meal. We also feature refreshing ciders and gluten-free beers, so you can enjoy your pizza and beer, guilt-free! 

If you feel like dining at home, let Wiseguy Pizza Pie take care of the details for you. We can even deliver your beer along with your pizza.  

3. There Is a Pizza to Satisfy All Dietary Needs

In the last few decades, people have been becoming more conscious about what they put into their bodies. Some choose to follow certain diets and others have natural food allergies. Recent studies show that 1 in 3 Americans follow a special diet and avoid certain foods. 

Even if you have special dietary requirements, you should still be able to enjoy a delicious slice of pizza. If you are gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, cutting calories, or lactose intolerant, there is a pizza in Idaho for you. 

Whatever your dietary requirements are, you can have your pizza, and eat it too!

4. The Pizza Is Uniquely Prepared

You’ve likely seen an experienced Italian chef throwing up pizza dough and skillfully catching it before decorating it with toppings. But have you ever wondered why?

Hand-tossing pizza helps to get rid of air bubbles in the dough, preventing the dough from rising. It also helps the dough retain moisture, creating the perfect crust that is soft and crunchy at the same time. 

Once our hand-tossed pizza is topped with fresh ingredients, it is stone-baked, ensuring that our pizza is cooked evenly. Stone-baking cooks the pizza quickly and thoroughly while giving it a crispy texture. 

5. The Ingredients Come From Local Farms

If you’re looking to order a pizza for dinner on any night of the week, chances are there are many restaurants for you to choose from. So how do you know which one is the best? 

When it comes to the art of making pizza, one of the most important factors is how fresh the ingredients are. If the dough is pre-made or the tomato sauce comes from a can, chances are you’ll be able to tell in the flavor and texture. 

However, fresh ingredients that are locally sourced make a huge difference.

At Wiseguy Pizza Pie, many of our ingredients come from local farms and are made fresh daily. The flour comes from Pocatello Idaho farms, where they produce fresh grains and manufacture Pendleton Power Flour. Our dough is made fresh daily, and each pizza is hand-tossed and prepared to perfection.

The mozzarella used to top our pizzas is made from whole milk and sourced from Jerome, Idaho. We also have non-dairy mozzarella available if you are vegan or dairy-free. 

The combination of fresh ingredients and daily preparation makes for the best pizza in Boise. 

Not only does shopping locally for ingredients make for better quality pizza, but it also supports small businesses in the community. This allows us to know how our ingredients are being produced and what the local production practices are like to choose farms that align with our values.

6. You Can Enjoy Preparing Our Pizza at Home With Your Family
