frontager's panzenella salad

Restaurant of the Week: Frontager’s Pizza Co.

Located in the heart of Seabrook is Frontager’s Pizza Company, a family-friendly restaurant serving up brick-oven pizzas with artisanal meats and cheeses–a true pizza lover’s dream. With its start in 2009 as a food truck in Washington D.C., the team migrated to Seabrook in 2014, operating out of a 1939 Chevrolet Farm Truck, and have since evolved into a thriving pizzeria.

The concept of taking a food truck and turning it into a restaurant dishing out delicious pizza and local craft beers is what founders and creators Eric Duensing, Andy Bickar, Michael Chewning and Zachary Graybill wanted when creating this well-loved pizza joint. Guests are invited to dine in at one of Frontager’s cozy tables, the bartop, patio or in the beer garden–all with views of Town Hall.

Antipasti dishes are always a great way to start off your meal and perfect for sharing. Place an order for the warm marinated olives served with fresh bread. Kalamata and Castelvetrano olives are tossed in garlic and marinated to perfection with an in-house seasoning and olive oil; a true Italian classic! Pair this with the antipasti board filled with a variety of meats and cheeses, including soppressata, prosciutto di parma and gouda (just to name a few). If you’re in the mood for a fun adult beverage, the Sacchetto Prosecco is a light, fruit-forward Italian wine that accompanies any of the antipasti dishes beautifully. For those who are looking to be carb conscious at Frontager’s, the beet salad is a fan favorite. This salad is a fresh mix of chicories, orange, goat cheese, hazelnut dukkah and a citrus vinaigrette.

Time for pizza! Each pizza is cooked to perfection in the piping-hot gas oven. Try the featured chicken bacon ranch pizza topped with Frontager’s house-made ranch, mozzarella, chicken, bacon, red onion, garlic confit, parmesan and arugula. Turn up the heat with the red sauce-based Salumi pizza, finished off with mozzarella, salumo gorgonzola and Mama Lil’s peppers. Looking for a more savory pizza? The prosciutto di parma will have you savoring each bite; this olive oil-based pizza has fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, tomato and a garnish of arugula and a balsamic reduction. All pizzas are 12 inches and can be prepared with a gluten-free crust and an option to add vegan cheese. Accompany your pizza with a cold glass of Camas Brewing Irish Red Ale or Hefeweizen.

One thing that makes Frontager’s unique (aside from its outstanding pizza) is its baked-to-order stromboli and calzones. The 20-minute wait is worth it! Rolled and folded into a golden crust, the pepperoni and sausage stromboli is excellent for sharing or keeping all to yourself and is served with mozzarella, pepperoni, fennel sausage, pickled jalapeno and red onion. A fantastic vegetarian option is the veggie calzone, served with a side of red dipping sauce and packed full of smoked mozzarella, roasted mushroom, tomato, basil confit garlic, red onion and drizzled with a balsamic reduction. And be sure to keep an eye out for the the restaurant’s featured dishes as they can change seasonally.

Beer Garden

For dessert, order up the skillet chocolate chip cookie topped with salted caramel and served with gelato from Frontager’s neighbors, the Sweet Life. Be sure to ask about the gelato of the day.
