Really glad we found this place. The wood fired pizza was excellent. We ordered the veggie pizza, caprese salad, and chopped salad. I would recommend this to people exploring downtown anchorage who want quality food at a reasonable price.

Fat Ptarmigan is located in historical downtown Anchorage, AK. We serve authentic, wood fired pizza in a warm, inviting environment with a focus on service and attention to detail. We reach this goal with our wood-fired oven, house-made mozzarella, and specialty ingredients. Pop in for lunch or dinner and get some BlackCup prepared coffee or a locally brewed beer along with your meal. Afterwards you can split a plate of our cannoli's or a cup of divine gelato.
