In the heart of Paia town, the Flatbread Company serves up natural pizzas baked in a primitive wood-fired oven to deliver the best flatbread pizza experience in Maui. Menu items are prepared with local, organic produce and free-range meats, while dough is made fresh daily with 100% organically grown wheat, spring water, kosher salt and real cake yeast. With a variety of fresh, appetizing toppings, the result is a delicious flatbread big enough to split with a friend.

Pizza options include the savory Homemade Sausage, made with nitrate-free maple fennel sausage and the uber-cheesy Jay’s Heart, made from whole milk mozzarella, parmesan, wood-fired cauldron tomato sauce and herbs. If you’re a die-hard pepperoni addict, feast guilt-free because the pepperoni here is nitrate-free and grouped with mushrooms, cheeses and herbs. Veggie and Carne pizzas change weekly to ensure top quality and optimum ingredients.

Touting a respectable history, the Flatbread Company began in Amesbury, Massachusetts circa 1998, by Jay Gould and James Meehan. It was in this quaint location, the passion for natural, organic pizzas was born and bred, eventually leading to nine more locations.

Aside from supporting local farmers, Flatbread Company also holds a benefit night every Tuesday where $3.50 per flatbread is donated to a non-profit organization each week.
