Description: 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.

So light and flakey! So utterly delicious! I'm hungry just thinking about it! The pepperoni & vegetarian pizzas are excellent choices!

“Good Pizza!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Hubby LOVES LOVES LOVES this pizza. I think it is pretty good, but don't rave about it. Enjoy the mix of toppings that most other places don't have. I think you need to eat it in the restaurant. I have only taken out and since the crust is thin the pizza gets cold and loses flavor by the time I have eaten it. Inside always smells amazing though.

“This is why I never watch 3d.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Aside from the crust, the pizza was unremarkable. The chili's had zero flavor. The crust was good though, it had more flavor than the toppings

“Just Ok”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I was intrigued by this place after reading some of the reviews. I didn't have the same experience as many of the reviewers. The people there were nice, but the food wasn't that good. It was average pizza. I would not go back.

“Great pizza! You name the toppings on your pizza. Small neighborhood joint.”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

The place is kinda small but has a great hometown atmosphere. We'll definitely go back the next time we're in town.
