Flatbread Company

Some days I’m so unmotivated to cook. Okay, some weeks I’m so unmotivated to cook. Thankfully we now live around really good and consistent restaurants that are both kid-friendly and delicious to both minor and adult palates. Last night we indulged in pizzas from the Flatbread Company in Bedford. The restaurant is funky, has a good beer menu and over-the-top Sangria, occasionally has live music, and great pizza oven theater.

Jay’s Heart – Homemade wood-fired cauldron organic tomato sauce, premium whole milk mozzarella and Parmesan cheese baked on organic bread dough with organic garlic oil and our own blend of organic herbs. (We skipped the herbs.)

There are two wood-fired clay ovens that make up the bulk of the kitchen area, with one taking center stage that kids gather in front of on a conveniently positioned bench. On another note, the tiny people are often so unattended in front of the clay pizza oven – the size and shape of an igloo – you wonder if one of them will end up in it before parents notice.

In addition to pizza theater for the kids, they also provide paper and crayons for drawing, and fist-sized balls of pizza dough. My kids love the dough, but often work it so much in their sweaty little hands that numerous bathroom trips are required to remove it, thus creating the one dough downside.

Veggie Special: Herb ricotta cheese with sliced vine ripened tomatoes from Maddison, ME and organic fire-roasted organic zucchini topped with whole milk mozzarella, parmesan and hand cut herbs.

As the parent of a child with a life threatening tree nut allergy, it is also worth noting the restaurant doesn’t use any nuts or peanuts. For those that might require it, they do not appear to offer gluten-free pizza however . All of the produce is organic and from local farms. The cheeses are also from New England and meats are free-range. On Tuesdays they donate a portion of their proceeds to a local non-profit, with the organization changing weekly.

Carne Special: Free-Range shaved steak with our wood-fired organic tomato sauce with fire-roasted new England asparagus, swiss cheese, and organic mushrooms. Topped with whole milk mozzarella, parmesan, and hand cut herbs.

We usually get a plain cheese for the kids and so far this is their favorite. Ever. There are also two weekly pizza specials, one vegetarian and one with meat. They both are usually really good and last night was no exception, even as take out.
