Taos Pizza Out Back is one short block from my house. This is a really good thing because I can walk over whenever I crave pizza. And, because I can smell the dough baking each morning, this is a frequent occurrence. The pizza is amazing but so is everything else on the menu. The slices are huge!! (I promise you won't need more than one), the salads are delicious with an impossibly good pesto dressing, and perfect pasta is always on the menu. The ingredients are local and organic and the atmosphere is Taos cool, Taos funky. Really a perfect place for lunch or dinner.
Recently Curbed Ski voted Taos Pizza Out Back one of the Top 14 Best Ski Town Pizza restaurants in the country. They said:
"Opened in 1999, Taos Pizza Out Back has impressed everyone from locals to the New York Times, so it's no surprise it's a fav after skiing. The slices are huge and the pesto salad dressing will keep you coming back for more."

Here are sixteen reasons to try Pizza Out Back. My favorites are The Taos, Greek and Southwest. The Shredder and Ranchero are family favorites (I am talking to you Peter and Eric) but, trust me, you can't go wrong. And, whatever you do, do not skip the salad...with the aforementioned pesto dressing. If you are like me you will probably order some of the dressing to take home! Check out the menu for all the offerings.
