We love to eat all types of pizza, and we have found some tasty ones to recommend in the Treasure Valley. Both Flatbread Neapolitan Pizzeria and Grimaldi’s Coal Brick Oven Pizzeria serve varieties well worth partaking of!
Flatbread Neapolitan Pizzeria’s signature is D.O.C Neapolitan which has a Naples, Italy, pedigree. If it is your first time, a great choice is Quattro Stagioni (Four Seasons)--four quadrants, each with different toppings including Fior di Latte, San Marzano Pomdoro, Creminelli Prosciutto Crudo (which was our favorite) and Calabrese, Fresh Basil, Herbed Portobello Mushrooms, Fresh Parmesan. Flatbread also serves appetizers, soups, sandwiches, flatbreads, pastas, “Craft Your Own Pizzas” and desserts. Appetizer specials as well as two-for-one cocktails, beer and wine and lunch specials are available during Happy Hour.
On our recent visit we delighted in Housemade Sausage Lasagna and Wood-Fired Prosciutto Wrapped Prawns made with Pinot Grigio Marinade, Arugula and Fig Glaze. A talented mixologist created excellent cocktails. We enjoyed a Pomegranate Margarita made with Tequila Bianco, pomegranate and Triple Sec served on the rocks and a Raspberry Lemon Drop with citrus vodka, raspberry liqueur and fresh squeezed lemon juice served up. Try two Boise locations and one in Bown Crossing.
Grimaldi’s Coal Brick Oven Pizzeria has 100+ year old roots in Brooklyn, New York. “Create Your Own Pizzas,” calzones, salads, beer and wine are featured. We like to go on Tuesdays when wine is half price. Our favorite pizzas are Arugula and Prosciutto and Spicy Chicken Sausage. Grimaldi’s has a choice of several tasty salads to complement any pizza. Most seating gives you a great view of the Las Vegasesque fountain water show which is the centerpiece of The Village at Meridian.
