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.

Got the XL pepperoni and sausage pizza. Great taste. Added a small Caesar salad (Delish!!) came out to $32. Sat out on the back porch. Perfect at night. Pets are welcome.

My husband and I are from out of town and I wanted to eat here after seeing it listed on Diners Drive Ins and Dives. It wasn't that crowded and we sat where we could watch them make the pizza. All the workers were super busy but we didn't see that many pizzas come out of the oven. We enjoyed... More

We were staying in Santa Fe over night and picked up a pizza to bring back to our hotel. By the time we got around to eating the pizza it wasn't hot anymore, but it was still some of the best pizza my husband and I have ever eaten. The pepperoni was delicious. The pizza wasn't soggy or greasy, like... More

Scratch everything!!! Had the fall salad with chicken and dill dressing. It was very good but the hit was the homemade macaroon. Family had pizza and will crave it!

Hard to find but well worth it. Pizza and appetizer was very good. Service was serve yourself, and no one explains how that works. Service sucked!

As a native New Yorker we loved the thin cornmeal dusted crust. We also ordered the beet and goat cheese salad and it was delicious as well. The staff was friendly and thanked me for coming out on a Sunday evening. I would definitely go back.

We stopped in recently for a large pizza and a full salad to split between three hungry people. Everything was as it always is when we go to Back Road. It is not the cheapest place for pizzas in town, but by far the best and most consistent in my opinion. Fresh traditional and creative ingredients, quality cheeses, and the... More

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.
