State & Main

1
6455 Macleod Trail SW, Calgary, AB T2H 0K8

State & Main balances chic comfort with delicious food and drinks that definitely hit the spot. Their menu has a little something for everyone, including soups and salads, heart-warming burgers and juicy steaks. Their flatbreads, however, are underrated. Choose from classic margherita topped with cherry tomatoes, cream cheese, mozzarella and basil; spanako covered in roasted red peppers, spinach, red onion, cherry tomatoes, goat cheese and finished with a balsamic reduction; or the meat-lover’s favourite chorizo salami sausage with red peppers, banana peppers, a cheese blend and cracked pepper.

Cilantro

2
338 17 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2S 0A8

Go ga-ga for Cilantro’s gorgonzola and pear flatbread, topped with pine nuts and dill pesto – sweet and savoury with a little bit of crunch. Fire roasted tomato, chicken and pancetta, pulled elk and wild boar sausage are a few more of their uniquely flavourful and satisfying flatbreads. Can’t decide which one sounds the best? Grab a few friends to share them all in their classy dining room. Play with flatbread and wine pairings from their lengthy wine list for the perfect Friday night with friends.

National on 17th

550 17 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2S 0B1

National narrows your flatbread choices between two delicious twists on Canadian classics. First up is Hawaiian with prosciutto and thinly sliced pineapple on traditional tomato sauce, but finished with jalapenos to spice things up a bit. Their pepperoni mushroom flatbread is definitely a crowd pleaser. National’s house-made tomato sauce and mozzarella make this one perfect for sharing with the special flatbread lover in your life. Indulge in National’s plentiful beer taps, relax family-style with friends and neighbours along their bench seating, or scout out the street on their corner patio.

Eleven Kitchen & Bar

4
11 Freeport Cres NE, Calgary, AB T3J 0T4

Long, thin, and packed with flavour, Eleven’s flatbreads look a little different from the usual, but they taste just as good. The menu says they’re personal sized, but the unique flavours beg you and your friends to try them all. Pick from Thai prawns and pineapple, Canadian duck sausage and cheese curds, American BLT inspired, Moroccan pulled lamb, classic Italian margherita, or Indian chicken tikka with yogurt and fresh coriander. Round up a crew for a night full of flatbread in their contemporary lounge.

Bottlescrew Bill's Pub

5
140 10 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0A3

Share a sweet and spicy flatbread at Bottlescrew Bill’s with some friends. Casual pub-style dining, and an endless selection of craft beer – we promise you won’t go home hungry. Their flatbread starts with tomato sauce on a perfectly baked crust. Next, they add a healthy portion of spicy beef, and top it with sautéed onions, jalapeno peppers and goat cheese: sweet and spicy, just like the name promises. If the flatbread doesn’t fill you up, choose a pint and some pub fare, and just keep on munching.

Craft Beer Market

6
345 10 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0A5

One place that can’t be missed on this flatbread round up is Craft Beer Market. As if Craft needed one more reason for you to dine there! Feeling spicy? Try their gaucho chicken flatbread topped with jalapenos, pico de gallo and chipotle aioli. Following a vegetarian diet? Opt for the Tuscan veggie loaded with zucchini, red peppers, red onion, olives, and basil. Omnivores love the prosciutto and arugula to get their light meat and veggie fix. All three are also available gluten free on request. Casual fare, fresh food – I’m in!

Wild Rose Brewery Taproom

7
4580 Quesnay Wood Dr SW, Calgary, AB T3E 7J3

A brewery first, but pub by nature, Wild Rose tickles all your taste buds with their selection of house-made flatbreads: spicy, veggie, and mouth-watering meat. El Diablo is the devil’s bread, coated in spicy sausage, banana peppers and Sriracha hot sauce. Step down a level in spice for the mango and chipotle chicken flatbread, with peppercorn ranch to mellow out the specialty mango salsa. Classic Canadians love a Montreal smoked meat flatbread, served with pickles and all the traditional sandwich toppings.

Peanuts Public House

8
9030 MacLeod Trail SE, Calgary, AB T2H 0M4

Peanuts Pub is all about sharing, which their lengthy list of appetizers proves. The room itself is set up pub style, but with lots of light. One wall of glass separates guests from the keg room. It feels no-frills, but maintains a classic vibe. Their flatbread is set up as sort of a “build your own” style. Diners start with a margherita flatbread, but can choose to add sausage and peppers, or a selection of cured meats.
