chicago connection our story

In 1982 Chicago Connection Pizza was founded in Boise, Idaho, introducing a great Chicago-style deep dish pizza. The first location on Fairview Avenue offered Boise the same style pizza that is a staple for pizza fans in Chicago.

In only a few shorts months, the pizza became such a hit that a second location opened on Overland Road. As Boise and the Valley grew, Chicago Connection Pizza opened another location in downtown Boise at 4th and Bannock, near the state Capitol and St. Luke's Hospital. As outlying areas began to demand "the better pizza" and the area's only hot oven delivery trucks, locations were opened in Eagle, Meridian, and Nampa. Our kitchens developed "Lasagna Pie" combining our deep-dish pizza crust with all the ingredients that make lasagna a real family favorite. We have had lasagna pie fans for almost forty years, who have made it a signature selection at Chicago Connection Pizza!

Chicago Connection Pizza has developed a reputation for the freshest ingredients, an abundance of cheese on its pizza, the Treasure Valley’s freshest salad bars, tasty pastas, breadsticks and hearty sandwiches. Chicago Connection Pizza delivers “the better pizza” with every order. And now, there’s a Chicago Connection Pizza pizza made with gluten free crust topped with our delicious sauces and toppings for those who need to restrict their intake of gluten products. Residents throughout the Treasure Valley have long known us by our fleet of the area’s only Hot Oven Express trucks. Traveling local streets and covering more than a million miles a year, our trucks have been a part of Idaho since 1982. There’s bound to be a truck delivering in your neighborhood. And don’t forget to call our store nearest you to help serve your group… from a few to 1,000.
