American Flatbread Restaurant Review

: Burlington’s flagship hearth has been baking innovative pies for years and its popularity shows no signs of waning. Flush with local produce (like sweet leaf lettuce and organic mozzarella), American Flatbread is more than a slice-and-soda joint. Guests swarm the upscale bar, jockeying for quaffs of brews to pair with their roasted tomato pie. And while outsiders might overlook the lonely "Evolution Salad" (it’s the menu’s sole appetizer), every meal should begin with this mesclun mix. Tossed with shaved carrots, crumbled chèvre and a bright, ginger-raspberry vinaigrette, it’s a sensational starter. Still, it’s the wood-fired squares of milled wheat that have earned this hearth its deserved legacy. Flatbread’s signature cheese and herb pie (sans red sauce) tastes like tarte flambé. Baked into crispy, elegant strips, the pizza seems impossibly thin for such rich, oregano flavor. Also first-rate is the nitrate-free New Vermont sausage, where every bite brings a balanced burst of fennel, sweet onion and roasted red pepper. This is pizza for gourmets and casual palates alike.
