The Montana Mint: Eugene’s of Glasgow wins the Montana Mint’s 2015 Best Pizza in Montana Championship
After three rounds of voting, over 10,000 votes cast, and lots of pizza debate, the Montana Mint named Eugene’s Pizza of Glasgow as the 2015 Montana Pizza Champion. Montanans have voted over the past three weeks for their favorite pizza shops in a March Madness style bracket. A copy of the original bracket can be found here.

The owners of the Montana Mint said, “One thing that became clear over the past year is there was no consensus on the best pizza in the state. The 2015 Montana Pizza Championship bracket aimed to give us some answers.”
Statewide radio personality Aaron Flint has been regularly plugging the pizza shop on his morning show “Voices of Montana.” Upon hearing the news of Eugene’s victory, Flint said “”I think it’s pretty clear the Hi Line is the real winner here. Three of the top four came from Highway 2 destinations. I’ll never forget growing up as a kid seeing Mr. Knodel throwing the pizza dough up to the ceiling. Eugenes Pizza has the taste, the ambience, and the community.”
Eugene’s captured 48 percent of the vote in the Final Four round of the Montana Pizza Championship Bracket. Eugene’s fended off stiff competition from Nalivka’s out of Havre (34 percent), Howard’s of Great Falls (11 percent), and Me Too Pizza out of Culbertson (7 percent).
Eugene’s was established in 1962 and has served the greater Glasgow area ever since. The offer your regular slate of normal pizza toppings, and some “Time Proven Combinations” that offer some bizzare, but apparently popular, choices. These include the Henry J (Canadian bacon and Sauerkraut), The Friday Special (tuna, shrimp, mushroom, and onion) and the Super (pretty much everything: Pepperoni, Beef, Salami, Sausage, Onion, Green Pepper & Mushroom).
For those not able to find their way to Glasgow in the near future, Eugene’s will overnight (!!!) you a half-cooked pizza. They also have some sweet gear you can rep anywhere in the world. Give them a call at (406) 228-8552 for details.
