Flatbread Company Wed, 04/7/10 5:19 PM (permalink)
Stopped by Flatbread Company in Bedford, MA this past week (small chain, mostly in northern New England).  We had their Jay's Heart - basically a tomato sauce & cheese pizza.  Simply outstanding, possibly the best pizza we've ever had.    I was leery about the flat bread in their name, but their crust was more of a thin, but not crisp yeast bread.  The tomato sauce  evidently made on site using canned, whole tomatoes had much flavor with the cheese topping having a nice bite.  Baking in a wood fired oven provided the crust with a nice flavor.   For those wanting natural ingredients, the flour is reportedly non brominated / non enriched / organic, their sausage is nitrate free and their other ingredients seemed to be quite natural, but none of that scared us away.  A bit pricey, but well worth the quality. 

IMO, Pepe's has some significant competition.

    Inspired by the review of EVO, in North Charleston, SC...
     
    I had lunch and dinner -- on the same day! -- at a Flatbread cousin near Whistler, BC, Canada, called Creekbread.  Very similar to what you described -- outstanding!

    One thing I found very interesting is that they cut the pizza similarly to how it is done at DeLorenzo's Tomato Pies (Trenton and Robbinsville, NJ):  once down the middle, then across in parallel lines.  Also saw the chef chops the wood for the oven right there in the restaurant.

      For lack of a better name, I always call this the "fishbone" cut.  Not sure I like it, but Flatbread, and the *other* company American Flatbread[1] do it that way as well.  I'm more of a fan of the standard pizza wedge.




      [1] Flatbread started as a franchise licensee of American Flatbread of Waitsfield, VT, but they parted ways several years ago and are only related in concept.  I like both chains, but in different ways.

        We ate at American Flatbread in Burlington a couple days ago and it was outstanding, along with their Zero Gravity beers.  I had sausage, black olives and mushrooms on my half.  My wife had Eggs Benedict on hers and it was amazing.
