Description: We invite you to our lively purple pizzeria, nestled at the foot of the towering peaks of the Alaska Range, in the little town of Talkeetna. Our menu is a collaboration of countless Basilone family recipes. Our famous Pizza Pie, home made Flat Breads, soups with vegetables from our garden, and our legendary Mountain High sauce are a reflection of our family's dedication to bring you the best and freshest food from our kitchen to your table.

Talkeetna is an interesting little town 14 miles off the highway, north of Anchorage, but worth a visit. About 800 year-around residents, but much more during the summer. Lots of arts and crafts, a grass airport in town, seaplane bases nearby, as well as lots to see.

We weren't planning to eat, but the locals seemed to all be taking boxed pizzas from Mountain High - those we asked about the pizza raved about how good it was. So we changed plans and went there to get a pizza - and a beer from the large variety on tap. Funky place, with outstanding pizza.

In the check boxes I had to say if this was one of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant ... of course, the answer was no, but it WAS one of the best Pizzas we have had.

The aromas lured us into Mile High Pizza Pie which is a pleasant place with both inside and outside seating. We initially chose an inside table, but an unpleasant man sitting at the next table did not make for a good experience. After tiring of his language and attitude, we moved ourselves to an outside table and informed the waitress that we had moved. We ordered barbeque sandwiches on flat bread. The barbeque was ok, but the flat bread was hard and bland.

All around good - we hung out on the patio for a few hours playing corn hole and eating pizza. Something for everyone, great environment and pizza by the slice.

As a year round Local born and raised here in Talkeetna there is only one place I can recommend with confidence to take your family for great service and amazing food. Believe me when I say I have seen many restaurants come and go in our little town of seasonal entrepreneurs.
MHPP (as us locals know it) Mountain High Pizza Pie has an excellent selection of fine Italian food. Pizzas, Flat Breads and some calzones. Pizza is light—feather-like crust, fresh toppings. It’s all so delicious, and they feature several unique combinations. Gluten Free pizza OK for 2 person, or for one hearty, half-starved appetites. Try the Hummus Platter combination of Kalamata olives tomatoes onion and their Pesto is to die for. It’s a great restaurant, and we recommend it to everyone wholeheartedly. (Local or just passing through) Also you can’t beat local beer and local prices. Located in Talkeetna Alaska- $6–$20 for lunch, $15–20 Dinner.

We did not try to pizza but did have breakfast there. The Mediterranean sandwich was wonderful. It was fresh, hot and delish. My husband had something like a breakfast calzone that was huge. He loved it and ate it all!! Great atmosphere as were all the places in Talkeetna.
