Another Beautiful Selection from Pizza Luce

This is from the last time that Lindz and I went to Pizza Lucé.  One of their specials of the month was a Thai Chicken pizza.  Being the lover of Asian food that I am, it was an easy choice.

Despite all the jalapenos, it was surprisingly mild in it’s heat.

This is a great combination.  I really wish they would put it on the regular menu.  It was a nice balance of what you would expect from something labeled “Thai.”  Crunchy peanuts with some heat from peppers (I know jalapenos are not the usual choice, but they worked) and some herby basil to round things out.

Pizza Night

Last night Lindsay, a couple of friends, and I went to one of our favorite pizza places.

That's right. Since 1993.

Pizza Lucé is local chain that offers higher end specialty pizza, pasta, salads, sandwiches, appetizers, and desserts.  Plus they have a bar with a great beer selection (Yes, I partook of some very delicious and a bit of bitter orange Surly Furious).  They have many items on the menu that can be Vegan or Gluten-Free.  If you live in/near Minnesota I recommend making the trip.  Even if you aren’t in the area, you should check them out: http://pizzaluce.com/ 

I didn’t remember to snap photos of everything, but here is what is some of what we ordered:

Artichoke Dip. It is so good that Lindsay always orders it.

From their website: “Critics agree—we put the art in artichoke dip. In fact, each order is an identical baked reproduction of Picasso’s best known work from his acclaimed “Parmesan-Cream Cheese-Artichoke Hearts and Garlic” period. Love at first bite? Yes. Served with two loaves of our toasted homemade focaccia bread.”

The special last night. Pasta with a pumpkin cream sauce.

Bowtie pasta, roasted corn, spiced pumkin cream sauce, and scallion greens for garnish.  Also it came with two pieces of garlic toast.  Very nice fall flavors.

Pizza Athena. Basically a greek salad on a pizza. Brilliant.

Again from their site: “You don’t need to consult some internet oracle to know this little goddess has fresh spinach, tomato, feta cheese, Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, red onions, Greek oregano and toasted garlic with light mozzarella on Bianca sauce.”

Everyone left very full and very satisfied.  The only flaw with the entire meal was when I was carrying out the leftovers, the pasta container slipped off and I lost a bit to the floor.  Yes, I did clean it up.
