I was THIS close to losing a free pizza offer last week. Some would consider that an unforgiveable crime.
I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that it's been a year since my beloved Old Chicago in Downtown Boise closed it's doors for the final time. The closure wasn't pandemic related. Their parent company, CraftWorks, filed for bankruptcy days later and closed several other locations. The location at the Boise Towne Square Mall survived, but it's just not the same. I hate driving to the mall, so it takes a mini-tour or an offer like a free birthday pizza to go there. This year, I procrastinated and almost lost my free pizza.
If you're a pizza lover, you're probably shaking your head saying "for shame, you never waste a good pizza." That's how most Americans feel. On average, we'll eat at least 23 pounds of pizza per person in 2021. The question is, where are people in the Treasure Valley grabbing their pizzas from?
We know that places like Idaho Pizza Company, Chicago Connection and Flying Pie are go-tos for many families on a weekly basis. They're all incredibly yummy, but there are dozens of pizza joints that deserve way more credit and attention than they're getting!
These are five of those places we think deserve some accolades for serving up a very find slice of pie!
