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.
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.
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.
