Tinder Hearth Wood-Fired Bread is about an hours drive from Bangor at 1452 Coastal Road in Brooksville, and they cook breads, pastries and pizza there. They serve up their wood-fired pizza on Tuesdays and Thursday nights only, between 4:30 and 8:30, and they're available for take-out only.
FoodandWine.com tells us that "pizza nights at Tinder Hearth—one of the state's many intensely good bakeries—are well worth planning your week around, should you ever be lucky enough to find yourself within striking distance."
