We make a thin crust pizza with a Santa Fe twist : a perfect flour crust rolled in cornmeal for a unique flavor and texture , topped with high quality delicious ingredients. All of our food is handcrafted on site, from our signature pizza dough to our roasted meats to our sub-breads to our sauces and dressings. We also offer a delicious gluten-free pizza crust made from scratch (we are NOT a certified gluten free facility). We showcase 10 local and national beers on tap-including a rotating selection of Santa Fe Brewing Company beers-as well as an outstanding selection of wine by the glass. Our in- shop Grab & Go case is stocked daily with all housemade items including our savory salad dressings, pickles, soups, desserts & our signature pizza dough & sauce for home pizza making adventures! BRP FB Logo BWe are committed to partnering with local farms and producers when possible & are super proud to be purchasing all of our beef & pork for our housemade meatballs & sausage from Talus Wind Ranch who raise Heritage Beef Cows humanely with the utmost respect for quality and preservation. We also partner with Camino de Paz School & Farm for delicious goat cheeses and fresh vegetables that we use on salads, pizzas & in our tasty soups. Backroad Pizza Equipped with pool tables, an old school table top Galaga/Miss PacMan, a 2nd story balcony and a gorgeous outdoor seating courtyard, we are one of Santa Fe's local favorites. We are your off-the-beaten path, around-the-corner local neighborhood pizza shop that's casual, fun, friendly & affordable. We have a rad crew of folks whom you will get to know and love. Back Road Pizza is always available as a community space and is committed to extending our generosity beyond the walls of our shops into the greater Santa Fe community. Back Road Pizza was voted #1 Best Pizza in 2012 & 2013 & has been voted one of the city's best restaurants for nine years running in The Santa Fe Reporter. We have received nods from both local and national sources including a flattering recent review in the Pasa Tiempo & USA Today Top 10 Best Santa Fe Restaurants. You may have also caught us on the Food Network's show Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives hosted by Guy Fieri.

Great time for the whole family at Back Road Pizza. The pizzas are great, especially the New Mexican and the salads are really good too. Nice beer selection as well. Great place for the whole family.

Great pizza. It's a bit out-of-the way by a few blocks. Ingredients are fresh, you can taste the difference. Crust is crunchy crispy, wide selection of toppings. Beer available. Located in apartment complex; be sure to park in spots dedicated to pizzeria.

Last night in Santa Fe and decided to get pizza to go. Wow it was delicious. We had leftovers and we got about a 20miles away and realized we left it in the fridge at the condo. We were all pretty upset :) The sauce was perfect and plenty of ingredients layered on the pizza. Great family stop as well... More

We visited because this place was featured on one of our favorite shows, and it did not disappoint. We had the Chicken Jerusalem and ate every crumb. I can't wait to visit on our next trip and try them again!

I love Back Road Pizza. In the summer you can sit out on the patio and enjoy a most delicious pizza. They have many other items besides pizza so satisfy everyone in your dining party. You must try Back Road Pizza>>you will not be disappointed.

We saw that this was on DDD so we thought we'd try it out. The pizza is made with a thin crust and put together in front of you. It is superb! My brother in law got a calzone and thought it was fabulous also. I highly recommend!

Stopped for a late lunch with my husband and VERY picky In-laws while traveling across country. Food was excellent! Pizza has a crisp crust with just the right chew and semolina crunch, toppings generous. The beet salad was great, another generous portion - even for half sized! Beets were not cooked to mush, feta and pumpkin seeds were a great... More
