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.

Back Road Pizza truly has the best thin-crust pizza in town. Great selection of beer, too. I always get a side Caesar salad, which is just the right size. Service is good, inside or outdoors.

We went for the cornmeal crust, which is a novelty for us Chicago folks. The Wife loved it and thought it was phenomenal. (The Wife has always been a big fan of New York-style pizza despite being a life-long resident of the Chicago area, so her judgment is suspect when it comes to pizza—The Bigtool.) I also liked the cornmeal, but I wasn’t ecstatic to the point of orgasm about it. In the end, it was a novelty that I get again. FYI- The outdoor picnic area is dog-friendly, and the Canadian bacon from the 3 Meat was dog-friendly too.

This pizza is the bomb! Crust is super thin! Try the New Mexican with green chili - you won't regret it!

We used to travel to NYC and judge every pizza place by that standard. We live out west and nothing has measured up - until now! This is pie heaven. The crust is crisp and perfect. The sauce is tasty. The toppings superb. I can't really say enough about the pizza this place produces except "thank you" for finally doing pizza right in the west.
