This place has repeatedly been voted best pizza in Santa Fe by the Santa Fe Reporter. I don't know whether that's true, as I haven't tried all the pizza places in Santa Fe, but it's our regular choice for take out. It's a thin crust–style pizza, with the usual assortment of topings, plus the ubiquitous New Mexico green chili. Qulaity... More

Stopped late afternoon, after hearing about this place on Food network. Worth the stop, chewy thin crust for calzones and pizza. Cornmeal used for crisping bottom in oven. Fresh sauce, they make everything here! GO and ENJOY.

As a visitor to SF, this is my second visit. Great pizza (corn meal crust!) with super choice of toppings, flavors. Plus good beer. Service was friendly and helpful.

Food Network star Guy Fieri T.V. show called "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives led me to this place so I had to try it out. Had some great Green Chile and Chicken pizza, a slice of better than expected Cheese Pizza and one of their local Santa Fe Brewing Company beers. Was not disappointed in the least. I would HIGHLY recommend... More

Called ahead, 30 minutes later I walked away with a piece of pizza heaven. Got the 'norm' pizza. (black olive, mushroom, housemade sausage & pepperoni) Awesome. Thin crispy crust, perfect amount of toppings. Got the house salad, it was good, a little too much fluff (garbanzo beans?) for my taste. Salad dressing was great.

Great atmosphere pool tables upstairs patio to sit out and eat. Walk in and order then pick your table. Food and service was fantastic! Awesome ranch dressing ( although we had to pay for extra one) pizza crust is amazing! Just like NY! Garlic bread cheese bites incredible ( if you LOVE garlic!) Stella cider on tap!

We went with a group of 10, had to put some tables together but there's room for a couple of larger groups inside. We loved our super thin, crispy crust pizza (rolled in cornmeal) with house sausage, pepperoni and mushrooms. Not at all greasy from the meats or wet from the mushrooms as you sometimes get elsewhere. My only minor... More

My wife and I visited on a Saturday evening. The patio was full and we ended up cleaning off our own table after snagging one as a group was leaving so be prepared if you visit on a Saturday night that it might be packed. Also as a result of being packed, the wait time for the food was a... More

The crust is perfect, and the sauce is also excellent. The house made italian sausage is an excellent ingredient and should be included in your choice of toppings IMHO. I was mildly disappointed that they did not have fresh jalapeños as an ingredient choice and relied on the standard pickled variety. Overall, great choice for your Santa Fe pizza needs.

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 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.
