One of my family's favorite exhibits at the Children's Museum of Idaho is the Idaho Pizza Company's little pretend pizza restaurant. The kids love making their own pizzas and I love the chance to sit down and pretend to order from the cute wait staff. But every single time we enjoy this area I leave craving pizza! You too?

About: "Launched as a pie in the sky idea in 1978, Flying Pie is now a much beloved homegrown institution, with hot spots in Boise, Meridian and Nampa. Our pizzas may go in a box, but we think outside of it (and inside of it too, of course, because that’s where the delicious lives). This out-of-the-box mindset has made us whirled famous." They really do have a variety of awesome pizzas!

About: "Naturally, our love of making great pizza started back in the Old World, where our founder, Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco, learned the importance of doing things the right way. Obsess over the details. Take pride in what you make. Appreciate the best things in life—like Ah!thentic® Italian pizza! When he was nine years old, he moved with his family from Sulmona, Italy, to America, and he brought with him a dedication to never cutting corners. Pat founded Marco’s Pizza in 1978, and he’s been cutting delicious slices ever since."
