Two weeks ago I roadtripped (that’s not actually a verb, but it should be!) from New York to New Hampshire. Since I was passing by Boston, it was the perfect excuse to take a quick lunch break and catch up with my Bostonite friend Marilyn.
She wasn’t surprised at all when I told her I wanted to go somewhere “blogworthy.” So she suggested Flatbread Company, located just outside of Boston.
Flatbread Company is known for its stone-oven pizza, which is prepared and baked right before your eyes!
I decided to get a closer look while the chef was preparing our pizza. You would think it would have been awkward, me standing there watching, but he seemed used to it. Or he was just polite…
It was fun watching the pizza baking.
There are ours!
I returned to our table, and our order arrived shortly after.
We started with something healthy, the Organic Salad. It has mesclun and sweet leaf lettuces tossed with celery, carrots, toasted sesame seeds, and Maine sea kelp with homemade ginger-tamari vinaigrette and a generous scoop of goat cheese. Marilyn absolutely loves these salads, and I could see why!
Now for the good stuff. We decided to share two pizzas, and I trusted Marilyn to pick the best. It turned out to be a very good decision!
Our first pizza was the Homemade Sausage. It features Flatbread Company’s homemade sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized onions, mushrooms, mozzarella and parmesan cheese and is flavored with homemade garlic oil and herbs.
Our other pizza was my favorite! We ordered the Jimmy’s Free-Range Chicken, which has free-range chicken, black beans, cilantro, tomatoes, roasted corn, mozzarella and parmesan cheese covered in a sour cream lime drizzle. It was fabulous!
Besides delicious food, Flatbread Company has a quaint atmosphere, complete with this old fashioned bowling alley! Adorable, right?!
So glad I got to see Marilyn! And eat that pizza!
I should roadtrip more often!
