Eat Out Boise Review: Smoky Mountain Pizzeria & Grill

Smoky Mountain Pizzeria Grill Pizza

After a busy day of moving my sister into her new house in the Boise, Idaho area, take-out pizza sounded really good!  She & her husband love Smoky Mountain Pizzeria & Grill, so we placed an order for pick up.

Smoky Mountain Pizza BBQ Chicken

My brother-in-law’s description of their BBQ Chicken Pizza made my mouth water.  It is topped with BBQ chicken, black beans, tomato, red onions, corn, cilantro, & gouda cheese.  The sauce on the pizza was quite sweet and tomato-y.  I was expecting a barbecue sauce on the pizza, but I think they must use their regular pizza sauce on it with the barbecue sauce being used just on the chicken.  Whatever it was, I liked it.  I loved the addition of the black beans, corn, & cilantro to the pizza.  Most barbecue chicken pizzas I’ve had have not had those toppings, but they sure add a lot to the flavor and texture of the pizza. 

Smoky Mountain Pizza The Ultimate2

The second pizza we ordered was The Ultimate, a traditional combination pizza with sausage, pepperoni, ham, black olives, green peppers, onions, & mushrooms.  It had a fresh taste with lots of onions and green peppers that were still slightly crunchy.  I liked it, but highly preferred the BBQ Chicken one.

The crusts on both were traditional hand-tossed crusts that were pretty good:  chewy, without being overly so and not greasy.  Both pizzas had a generous amount of toppings with good flavors.  I would love to go back for their BBQ Chicken Pizza, and to try some other specialty pizzas:  Primavera (I love broccoli on a pizza…why don’t more restaurants serve it up?), Curried Chicken, & Favorite Sun (a pizza with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, pine nuts, & smoked gouda). 

Smoky Mountain Pizzeria also has salads, burgers, & pasta in addition to pizza.  They have several eat-in locations, all of which are in Idaho except for their Sandy, Utah location.  Since we had take-out, I don’t know how the eat-in experience is.  Anyone have any feedback on that?  A gluten-free menu is available, in addition to a catering menu.
