Pizza Hut shifted from sit-down restaurants to carryout for most of its locations in the Treasure Valley. Some of the former Huts have been torn down, others remain vacant – and some are seeing new uses.
The former location on Vista Ave. near Malad St. in Boise is slated to be revamped into Brick Fire Craft Beer & PIzza, according to filings. Parent company Craft 24 signed a lease on the building last summer, and is now prepping to remodel the building.
Owner Richard Nichols included a menu of the “Detroit style pizza” with the building permit (not something I’ve ever seen before).
Here’s how the food is described:
This is why exists: to ENJOY different styles pizza. It’s called square but it’s really rectangle and baked in metal trays, just the ones used on the automotive lines at the Big Three. But instead of being filled with metal parts, ours are filled with the finest pizza ingredients we could source. We took inspiration and created a version of the Sicilian pizza that has been making people smile in Detroit for over 70 years.
A variety of pizzas and salads are planned, as well as 16 craft brews on tap.
