Mountain High Pizza Pie is on Main Street in Talkeetna, Alaska. Our menu is a collaboration of authentic family recipes made with only the freshest ingredients. We take pride in creating our own sauces, meats, bread, and dough daily to develop a distinctive combination of pizzas, flatbreads, salads, and specialty items. Vegetables and herbs from our garden are used to create unique soups and specials. Locally harvested, in season ingredients, like fiddlehead ferns, rhubarb, and salmon, are utilized to create one of a kind dishes that can't be found anywhere else! Our beer garden is an outdoor deck with seating for 200, not to mention inside seating for year round fun. With a bar and seating outside, you get the opportunity to work outdoors while overlooking Main Street. We serve a variety of rotating local craft beers & micro-brews. All summer we are proud to host free, live music on our patio to provide a lively yet laid -back experience for customers and employees alike. Our crew is comprised of year-round locals, but we rely heavily on our “seasonal individuals” -- adventurous individuals drawn to the magic of Talkeetna, its history, great beer, and incredible food!
