Lucy's Pizzeria

For fans of New York-style pizza, be sure to check out Lucy’s Pizzeria in Idaho Falls and Roberts. Lucy’s Pizzeria offers two locations in Idaho Falls on Broadway and Hitt Road, which make it convenient for locals to easily access their delicious food. Their menu features many great options such as breadsticks, wings, salads, subs, and of course an extensive selection of pizza.

Their New York Style pizza was perfected because of three men, Brian, Tim, and Geoff, who wanted to recreate the pies that were made in the famous pizzerias of New York, Boston, and Connecticut. Throughout their search, they found that the common factor between their favorite pizzerias was a traditional, Italian high-temperature oven. They then took this knowledge with them to bake the delicious pizzas you will get when you order from Lucy’s. The pizzas are prepared in a 600-degree stone oven that results in a thin crust that is crisp, airy, and slightly chewy. Lucy’s also uses only the freshest ingredients, this aids the hot stones in combining the flavors just right. Their secret to having the best New York Style pizza is to have the best sauce, cheese, and dough in town.

Their menu is packed with so many wonderful options, it will be hard for you to decide what to try. One of their house specialties is the Zestpian, this includes smokey ranch sauce with pepperoni, ham, chicken, bacon, pineapple, and jalapenos. No matter what you choose, the food is sure to satisfy your hunger. While you are there, try a side of their firesticks, which is breadsticks topped with cheese, buffalo sauce, and jalapenos.
