Wood-fired pizza and candlepin bowling are a winning combination for a Somerville Saturday night. We revisited the Flatbread Company in Davis Square to see if the housemade maple fennel sausage would be the meat-lovers topping to take the crown.

The Marinara at Pizzeria Posto is a simple pie where the sum is definitely greater than the parts. This pie has definitely risen to the top of my Boston pizza list.
One of the biggest pizza gripes in Boston is that the Greek dominated piescape means no good thin slices around. Not true. Just outside of Somerville's Magoun Square is Pini's Pizza (try enunciating around children), located just next door to longtime, neighborhood dumpling favorite, Wang's (I know, I know). Over the years Pini's has had some dips in consistency, but a recent visit evidences a strong upswing—so you won't get shafted.
Flatbread Company in Davis Square, Somerville s located in Sacco's Bowl Haven, one of the few remaining old-school candlepinbowling alleys in the area, and the lanes are still open for business. What could be better than pizza, beer, and bowling? Nothing, of course, so a few weeks ago, I got the team together and we dropped in to Flatbread Company to play a couple of frames and sample some of their pies.
