Backcountry Pizza & Tap House

Garden Fresh Pizza at Backcountry Pizza & Tap House
Sending a big hello after this lovely Memorial Day weekend… well at least the weather was lovely in Boulder, Colorado! I spent the weekend in Boulder with my sister and was not envious of the crummy weather in Chicago (except for a HOT Monday). Her boyfriend, Josh, had been raving about a new pizzeria that opened, so we had to check it out ;). Ariel, Josh, and I were joined by our cousin, Sarah, and her friend Ali who were visiting from Colorado Springs.

In the summertime, both have lines, but tourists are often wary of visiting Due’s… Still, they claim to serve the same pizza, and both will ultimately give you a Chicago deep dish experience.

I met my friend, Alyssa, for dinner, and we enjoyed a few glasses of wine with our meal.When I read the menu, my eyes were instantly drawn to the flatbread section, so I knew we had to share a flatbread as an appetizer.
