MAMA TIAZ is a food truck that serves some of the best pizza in Coeur d’Alene. A true family affair, owner Talitha Crawford and her son and his wife run the operation and serve slices and whole pies to hungry customers.

Yet it was difficult to get off the ground for MAMA TIAZ due to the pandemic. “We weren’t able to open for a while because our trailer was stuck in a warehouse and no one was allowed to work on it,” says Crawford.

Undaunted, Crawford and her family and now trying to help those who help others. When asked to join in on Columbia Bank’s Pass It On Project they knew exactly how they wanted to help. “We are passing it on by providing free pizza to firefighters in our community,” she says. “They do an amazing job, and with Columbia Bank picking up the tab, we are going to make sure they enjoy great pizza when they can.”
