So while October might be known for its candy corn and fun size candy bars, it is also National Pizza Month and Kennebunkport has lots to offer in the way of pizza pies! And while we could choose something like salad or soup to keep our blood sugar from surging, pizza is just so much more fun – and since it’s the food of the month, we’re just being festive. It’s like a rule or something. Right? Fortunately, there are options for every pizza palate right here in Kennebunkport! So here are just a few of the spots where you’ll find some stellar slices!
- Owen’s Farmhouse – While this favorite is located over the river (but not through the woods!) in
downtown Kennebunk, it’s more than worth the short drive from the Maine Stay Inn. With inventive toppings, including homemade sausage, and creative salads on the menu, this is a great spot for some casual digs. Plus, they’ve even got gluten free pizzas to enjoy!
- Federal Jack’s BrewPub – An all-American menu wouldn’t be complete without some cheesy, gooey, piping hot pizzas, and Fed’s doesn’t disappoint. Although they call their regular pizzas “flatbreads” and their gluten free option “pizza” – it’s all the same to me. Bread. Sauce. Cheese. Yum.
- Abbondante – this Italian Trattoria would not be complete without some authentic pizza pies, now would it? Even though this converted New England barn has kept its casual, unpretentious atmosphere, this new Kennebunkport restaurant channels its Italian roots so well, but you’ll have to taste it for yourself!
- In the heart of Dock Square, you’ll find some tasty pizza options at Alisson’s Restaurant, Atlantic Pizza, and some upscale “flatbreads” at One Dock. All three offer great locations, and some different flavors that will round out your pizza tasting perfectly!
With all these great options, who even needs an excuse like National Pizza Month to indulge? Nah, I’ll still take an extra reason to enjoy an indulgent slice (or two…or five…)! But no matter where you choose, Kennebunkport is lucky to have so many different and creative twists on an old fashioned favorite!
