Flying Pie 101:
Helpful Basics for First-Timers
There are two Flying Pie restaurants in Boise: one on Fairview and one on State. (We call our website the third store – it’s loaded with information you never expected from a pizza place, as well as a fully stocked mercantile where you can buy Flying Pie souvenirs like t-shirts and sew-on embroidered patches.)
Our New York-Style, thin-crust lunch slices are a yummy, quick lunch; if you’ve got time to enjoy what we’re most famous for, try any one of our 18 Specialty Pizzas! We offer lunch slices every day from 11:30 to 3:30pm.
We have three different doughs, all of which we make ourselves: Original, Whole Wheat, and Sourdough! Our tasty breadsticks are available in any of the flavors, and you can also get any of the varieties in doughballs, to make pizza or breadsticks at home! (The Whole Wheat makes excellent cinnamon rolls).
Yes, we deliver beer and wine! Best news you’ve heard all day, right? For folks out of our normal delivery area, for an extra $3 delivery fee, we can still deliver to you if your order is over $30 and within 10 miles of the store.
On Tuesday nights, from 6-9 pm, we have Gourmet Night! It’s $8 for all you can enjoy pizza, salad, and breadsticks (kids cost less). Each Gourmet Night we’ll feature 6 different Gourmet Pizzas and 6 pizzas from our regular menu, for perspective. The Gourmet Pizzas range from the Hong Kong Phuey, with Chinese noodles, to a Baked Potato. All these Gourmet Pizza recipes have been tested for deliciousness and passed with flying colors. Our website is updated weekly, to show which Gourmet Pies will be featured. Oh yeah, there’s also dessert pizza…
You can bring Flying Pie home with you!
1. We can cook our pizzas half way (par-baked), freeze them, and have them ready to travel home with you in a pizza jacket. They can travel safely for 40 hours.
2. You can bring home a jug of draft beer! We sell growlers of any of our draft beers, including our exclusive and award-winning Triple Pi Ale.
3. We have Flying Pie temporary tattoos, pint glasses, t-shirts, winged antenna balls, pizza servers and pizza jackets for sale. The tattoos also work nicely as car window decals! Ask to see the “First Timer’s Journal” for even more tips and helpful information.
Whitney heard that the Brown Family were first-timers, so she approached them in the dining room and asked them how their pizza was.
Tasby: It was wonderful.
Whitney: So you guys have never been here before, are you from out of town?
Tasby: Yep, we’re from Reno, Nevada.
Whitney: So how did you guys hear about us?
Tasby: I did my research and every website I tried said you guys were the place to go to. I read your mission statement and how you guys got developed and I thought ‘we gotta check this place out!’
Whitney: Great, that’s why I wanted to work here. So I heard you guys are in town for a soccer tournament. Are you guys gonna make this a ritual when you guys come in to town from now on?
Tasby: Oh yeah, we’ll definitely be back.
Abe: We’ve never been here. How’s it work?
Whitney: Well I’m glad you guys made it, we’ve been waiting for you. Where are you from?
Abe: Missoula, Montana.
Whitney: How’d you hear about us?
Abe: On Yelp.com.
Whitney: Oh cool, how’s that work? I’ve heard of it, but haven’t actually seen it.
Abe: It’s this application on my phone, where I just plugged in restaurant in Boise. Your restaurant came up at the top with four stars and 26 reviews. It looked like a great place to enjoy lunch so we popped in.
Whitney: How cool!
Abe: Yeah, I’m glad it brought us here. It was a pleasure meeting you.
Whitney: Me too, pleasure to meet you too. Next time you guys come in to town, come see us again.
Abe: Most definitely.
