American Flatbread, Burlington, VT
While vacationing in New England, Mrs PG and I used Hotwire to snag a room during the height of foliage season in Burlington, VT. Burlington is great town, not too big and sophisticated enough to have thriving scenes in both the arts and food.
American Flatbread is located in the heart of downtown Burlington. While it brews some fine and often eccentric beers, it also puts out an excellent selection of thin crust pizza. Some salads are also available but little else besides the pies. The pies are baked in a different (for me, that is) wood fired oven. The oven has a fire pit that runs down the middle of the floor of the oven. The pizzaiolo at the oven that night said it maintains a floor temperature of 550F and needs four to seven minutes for each pie depending on whether it's 12" or 16" wide, taking the higher number on busy weekends.The crust is a thin, yeast raised dough that leaves the oven with a very desirable black char spotted bottom and ours was cut in the St Louis style party cut of squares rather than wedges.
