Sometime in June, 2016. My partner attempts to convince me to move to Somerville after I graduate college. He takes me to Flatbread and says “look, Boston *does* have good food!”. (It was very convincing. I agreed.)
January – July, 2017. Flatbread becomes our primary restaurant of choice. We go there every weekend. We meet people there who will become our very good friends.
August 2017 – August 2018. We move south of Boston to save on rent. Turns out we love Flatbread so much that we literally drive 45 minutes once a week to visit the Somerville location. Worth it every time.
October 12, 2018. I’ve started graduate school. My beautiful partner proposes to me. Where do we go to celebrate? FLATBREAD. Somerville. Of course.
November, 2018. My final reviews. I need a title for my project. Stressed, I look at your menu, and at our favorite pizza. Hmm, Punctuated Equilibrium….I do a bit of googling and find that not only does the term in biology perfectly suit my project, but THE COLORS I used in my final prints even LOOK LIKE THE PIZZA. I start screaming with joy and later reference Flatbread in my project credits.
Present day. I’m so busy that I literally don’t have time to sleep or vacuum. Spring break arrives. Where do we go…admittedly three times in a row…? FLATBREAD.
This is all to say that I/we love your pizza so very, very much. And if I was involved in running a restaurant as delicious as Flatbread, I would want to know when customers fall in love with (and next to) my food. So – thank you. You have literally been the culinary highlight of my last few years.

A New Hampshire-based pizzeria that boasts a menu of mostly organic and locally sourced fare is headed to Lowest Greenville for its first Texas location.
Flatbread Company operates a handful of locations from Connecticut to Maine, as well as in Canada and Hawaii. It will debut locally at 1720 Greenville Avenue from two brothers and a partner in the Hawaiian franchise. The building that will house Flatbread Co is owned by the brothers’ family and will get a complete revamp before the eatery moves in, featuring two clay wood-fired ovens and seating for 150 diners with an outdoor patio.
A menu of wood-fired pizzas and salads are headed to Dallas with both meaty and vegan varieties alongside a handful of sauce-less pies. Diners will find pizzas made with organic wheat and veggies and hormone-free meats like uncured pepperoni, maple fennel sausage, pulled pork, or roasted free-range chicken.
The “Greenville Community Flatbread” is a special addition geared for the DFW dining crowd, featuring onions, mushrooms, whole milk mozzarella, and parmesan cheese with homemade garlic oil and blend of herbs on top. Salads include a base of organic greens topped with Maine sea kelp that can be customized with diners’ choice of veggies, cheese, and meat. Ice cream sandwiches, sundaes, and floats will be on offer for dessert.
“We were blown away by the pizza each time we had it [in Maui], and my kids don’t want to eat anything else when we visit,” said David Leake, one of the brothers behind the local franchise. “[With the] all-natural, locally sourced fresh ingredients, we felt good about giving in to them each time they chanted for pizza.”
Flatbread Company will make its local debut at the end of May or beginning of June. Stay tuned for its official opening date.
