Voted by locals as having the best pizza in Idaho Falls, Lucy’s New York Style Pizzeria, as the name suggests, specializes in New York-style pizza. The pizza is hand-tossed with a thin crust. With three locations in Idaho plus one in Utah, it is easy to see why this pizza joint is so popular: the dough is made-from-scratch daily, the sauce is made in-house, plus they procure only the highest quality ingredients. Mouth-watering highlights from the menu include the ‘zestbian’, which is topped with a BBQ-ranch sauce, pepperoni, ham, chicken, pineapple, bacon, and jalapeños, and the buffalo chicken. Vegetarians and those abstaining from gluten will also be pleased with the variety of options available to them.
