I have decided that the best pizza in Wyoming is in Centennial, Wyoming at the Beartree Tavern and Cafe. Now, I haven’t eaten all the pizza in Wyoming, but I am pretty sure having eaten pizza from the Beartree numerous times, it ranks in the top 3. Centennial is a small town at the base of the Snowy Range mountains 30 miles west of Laramie. We travel through there any time we go skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, camping and backpacking. Whenever we venture out to do any of these things we almost always make a stop at the Beartree Tavern and we always eat the pizza. Our two favorite pizzas to order are the green chili and the pepperoni with banana peppers. The crust is handmade, thin, crispy and delicious. It has that yeasty, beer flavor that I love in a pizza crust. The red sauce is tangy, with a touch of spice. Many people will tell you that their favorite pizza is the green chili pizza. It’s amazing. Instead of red sauce they layer their homemade green chili with mozzarella and any of your favorite toppings. We like to add chicken and artichokes. It’s a special kind of pizza for sure. The best pizza in Wyoming.
There is a small restaurant up front and a bar in back. The atmosphere is so cozy! It’s like you are in someone’s home. Many luscious green plants, a wood stove, a pool table and art all over the walls. They also have a sunny, private side room you can reserve for large parties. They have outdoor seating, a stage area and a roof top deck. In the summer it is a fantastic stop for lunch and dinner. They often have musical guests and events throughout the summer. You could make it a day just hanging out in their backyard space. They offer many beers on tap and generous wine pours that my girlfriends and I really enjoy! They have a large menu of appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, entrees, and of course the pizza, all served by a friendly and regular staff.

So if you are in the Laramie area, taking a drive to the Snowies, or just looking for a great pizza, consider the Beartree Tavern and Cafe. I guarantee you’ll love it. I’ve never had a bad experience or a bad pizza. Like I said, I am pretty sure it is the best pizza in Wyoming.
