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

This is the best pizza that will ever touch your lips. A local favorite for years but a must hit destination for travelers as well. Order the italian sausage, tangy sausage and mushroom on a double crust and your tummy will thank mmy.

The downtown location is a place EVERYBODY local goes to, great thin pizza, traditional old school ambience, friendly staff, just go there and enjoy hometown atmosphere. Especially recommended for long visits over comfort food.

Every time we are in Great Falls we eat Howards pizza in the Stein-house beer and wine parlor, We get the Stein-house special on thin or double thin crust. It is oh so greasy goodness, Not the type of pizza I ever thought of ordering, but it is the crack cocaine of pizza....A must HAVE!

Went to great falls Montana and ran around all day no was too worn out to to leave the hotel so we ordered Howard's pizza and had it delivered. The delivery was a little long but no big issue since we didn't have to leave, the pizza was great and worth the wait.

The entries for Howard's Pizza in Great Falls can be confusing, since there seem to be at least three. There are, in fact, four different Howard's locations. I have eaten at three of them over the years, but this review covers the one not listed among the three -- the Back to the 50's location on the west side of... 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
