When Pigs Fly Pizzeria

If you like the sourdough, wait till you try the pies.

By Catherine Smart

In Boston, When Pigs Fly means hearty bread you can find at the supermarket. In Kittery, though, the name is synonymous with chewy, gooey wood-fired pizzas, cold beers, and a raucous good time for the whole family. The heart of this sprawling 160-seat restaurant is a massive pizza oven, which turns out pies like Meatball, Medjool Date & Soppressata, and—our personal favorite—the Italian Spicy Sausage & Mushroom. Sweet and savory Crispy Brussels Sprouts with sesame ginger sauce will keep you very happy until pizzas hit the table. Salads, like a Caesar with white anchovies and fried garlic, and Kale with quinoa and shredded beets, are also great choices to round out the meal. Of course, we can’t discount the bread; When Pigs Fly has a hearty selection of sandwiches, from a Turkey B-L-T on cranberry bread to a tender Meatball Sub with hot cherry peppers on baguette. PSA: Save room for the Ice Cream Sandwich. Gifford’s Ice Cream is pressed between whatever cookies are looking good in the bakery that day.
