  • Address: 321 W San Francisco St, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501
  • Tel: 505-986-8700

Located in Santa Fe’s plaza, Il Vicino serves pizzas made in an authentic wood-fired pizza oven. The surroundings are relaxed but smart, and they even serve their very own brew – an internationally award-winning beer called Canteen.

You can eat outdoors too – a boon in pandemic times. And if you’d rather stay at home, you can have your food delivered. They will even cater for events – just contact the team for details.

The menu features a range of classic Italian toppings. The Molto Carne takes the standard meat feast up a level, with home-made sausage and capocollo ham added to the pepperoni. Vegetarians have a decent choice of toppings, featuring ingredients like mushrooms, artichoke hearts, spinach and kalamata olives.

And if you prefer, you can create your own pizza, choosing from a range of bases and sauces as well as toppings.

This friendly pizzeria is a great choice for those looking for a crunchy crust and fresh, abundant toppings. In pandemic times, food is limited to curbside collection. At other times, you can dine in and watch the pizza being made. And there are pool tables upstairs to keep you entertained after your meal too.

The menu features a good range of pizzas, all with a crust rolled in cornmeal to give it extra crunch. You can choose from 6, 12 and 16-inch pies, with a 12-inch gluten-free version available too. And there are plenty of toppings for those who like to create their own.

You can even order your own DIY pizza kit to replicate the Back Road experience at home. And inexperienced cooks needn’t worry – it comes with instructions too!

3. Upper Crust Pizza

Upper Crust Pizza has two branches in Santa Fe. In normal times, both offer a great dine-in experience. But you can order from both locations for delivery, and the El Dorado branch has a drive-thru too.

The wholewheat crust and marinara sauce are particular hits. And the menu has plenty of choice for both meat eaters and vegetarians. The pizzas come in two sizes, and you can also order calzones, salads, sandwiches and sides.

If you have a sweet tooth, you can get a delicious strawberry or turtle cheesecake from the downtown Upper Crust. But head to El Dorado and you’ll get lots more choice, including brownies, apple pie, empanadas, chocolate cake and banana bread.

There’s also a 12-inch gluten-free crust. But those with a gluten intolerance might feel peeved at having to pay the same price for their toppings as for a 16-inch pizza.

Pizzas are available by the pie and the slice, in sizes from 8 to 20 inches. There’s even a pizza slider menu for those who’d like to sample different flavors. A large 16-inch pizza can be ordered with different toppings on each quarter. And you can get a flatbread pizza the same way too.

This isn’t the cheapest place to eat, but the quality is excellent. And the service is top notch too.

Joe’s menu goes far beyond pizza. Here you can enjoy everything from burgers to sandwiches, pasta to entrees, salads to appetizers. There’s even an extensive breakfast menu.

But while the pizzas may not be the only game in town, they’re well worth checking out.

Here, the simple Margherita is elevated to an art form. Like all Joe’s pizzas, it’s topped with Joe’s own mozzarella, made several times a day. You won’t find fresher. And it’s offered only in the late summer and early autumn, when the right quality of New Mexico heirloom tomatoes are available.

Give it a try, and taste the difference. You can also buy a range of other classic and innovative pizzas. All are available in 10 and 16-inch diameters, enough for six and twelve slices respectively.

If you’re the kind of person who likes to plan ahead, Tender Fire could be the perfect pizzeria for you. It publishes its new weekly menu every Tuesday, with pre-order slots for the following week. Book early – they’ve usually sold out by Wednesday night.

Pre-ordering is done online. Check out the website for details. There’s also some limited availability for walk up orders. Your best bet is to check around 8.30pm. You’ll need to do it in person, though. The small staff will be focused on food preparation, so won’t be able to answer the phone or check texts.

Order in advance, and your pizza will be put into the outdoor brick oven when you check-in. It will be ready in between 5 and 15 minutes. If you’ve ordered five or more pizzas, it will take a little longer.

Many of the pizzas here are vegetarian and vegan. Whatever the ingredients, the emphasis is on sustainability, with produce sourced as close to home as possible.
