Very good thin and medium crust pizzas

I really like Howard's pizza, especially the hand tossed crust. The thin is okay and I'm not a big fan of the "deep dish pan" which barely qualifies in my Midwestern opinion. The cheese, sauce and toppings they use remind me of our local Sicilian place back home and that's a good thing. Howard's... read more

Great place to have pizza... had thin crust with pepperoni, black olives. Thin crust is very good... different flavor and taste to pizza sauce. The place was old inside but clean and the staff was very friendly.

Really wanted to like this place - the hometown joint, serving up pizzeria style...but I found the pizza perfectly average. Ordered the Stein Haus, liked the "tangy" (homemade summer sausage) but overall it was disappointingly bland and a little soggy (maybe from the canned mushrooms?) Service was good, but the setup was odd: one waitress covering all tables and four... More

Howards is an institution in Great Falls. Many people who leave Great Falls make Howards their first meal when they come back to visit. The pizza is delicious, traditional and made with real ingredients. There is nothing fancy about it, just pure pizza. Try any of the several locations around town. We like the Wine Mill and Classic 50's locations... More

I ordered the taco pizza "to go". Didn't try any other but Godfathers has better taco pizza - crushed chips on top, taco sauce IN the crust? I consider Great Falls "home" - lived here for many years and still do NOT know what the fuss is all about! Another thing is that I ordered the taco with the thick... More

When I have a craving for pizza, it is Howard's pizza no question about it. There are 4 locations to choose from, so no matter what side of town you happen to be on, there is a location close. We have tried almost every pizza on the menu including some of their more creative combinations like sauerkraut with smoked sausage,... More

There are four Howards locations in Great Falls, and the pizza is consistent in all of them. I have eaten in all of them and in twenty plus years, I have yet to have a pizza that I did not enjoy.
