Matt grew up in a pizza restaurant. Working with his Father they opened their first restaurant in 1982 in Delta, UT on Main Street. They named it “The Pizza House.” It was there that Matt’s dad developed the slow rising pizza dough used today to make Pizza Pie Café pizza so good!


Matt’s teen years included reading trade magazines and going to Pizza trade shows. At the age of 16 he read “Pizza Tiger”, the story of Tom Monaghan and Domino’s. Matt said, “I knew at that point that I wanted to open my own pizza restaurants and do that for the rest of my life.”


Matt went on to work for various restaurants (too many to list) and in 1991 met his wife while working at “The Brick Oven” (Heaps) in Provo, UT. They always wanted a restaurant of their own, so in 2003 the couple moved to Rexburg, Idaho and took over an abandoned pizza shop called Craigo’s.


They put their talents to work creating Craigo’s Gourmet Pizza. The building quickly became too small and in 2005 Craigo’s moved locations in Rexburg. From humble beginnings as a college hangout, Craigo’s became Pizza Pie Café and what you see today!

Pizza Pie Cafe is a great place to take the family for a meal. There are not a lot of places to eat in Highland and so this is a great choice. The pizza is made fresh and there is a great variety. Salad bar is well stocked and you can also get pasta.

The pizza and pasta are great with many options to choose. I can't speak for the salad bar. Be sure to look out for the different funny sayings on the back of each employee's t-shirt. Bring the whole family. There is plenty of seating and plenty of great food to go around.

This is a very good buffet. The price is decent and the service is quite good! There are always plenty of clean tables and the workers are constantly coming around to pick up dirty plates and clean up messes. Now, the food! The salad bar has a pretty good selection of vegetables and other toppings and their ranch dressing is very good. They always have a ton of different pizzas for you to choose from and the cheesy bread sticks are delicious! I love the cookie dough pizza that they have and the raspberry one is pretty good too! They have a large selection of pastas and good sauces that you can combine to create your own favorite flavor! I love to get the carbonara and roasted red pepper sauce on spinach fettucini. It's a great place to eat!

I really enjoy Pizza Pie Cafe. I have gone to number of them in Utah but sadly the closest on to my home has been the worst experence so far (Highland UT). The last few times I have come in they have not had item available. The last time the salad bar was a mess and some of the items we were told gone. This was at 5:30 in the evening. We have come in twice and thre was no ice for drinks. The service was sub par as well. I know the Orem, UT location trys to make things right. If it were my store I would not turn it over to a bunch of teenage kids to run. This was my last visit to this location
