Well, well well... It is National Pizza Day and I couldn't let the day go by without exploring the best pizza places in the Treasure Valley. National Today says, "Though flatbreads with toppings were consumed by ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks, the modern birthplace of the pizza is southwestern Italy’s Campania region, home to Naples in the 1700s and early 1800s was a thriving waterfront city. It’s hard to imagine that before World War II, pizza was little known outside of Italy or Italian immigrant communities. This cheesy disc went from a niche cultural meal to the star of the show anywhere it turns up!"

So where to go to enjoy the best variolations of the staple meal? We have a lot of incredible options here in the Boise area and all around the Treasure Valley so lets dive in.

Casanova PizzeriaFood & Wine recently named this the top pizza place in Idaho.
