Off the Beaten Plate: The Spud at Limestone Pizza


The Spud at Limestone Pizza, 814 Massachusetts St.

Just when we thought pizza couldn't get any more carb-heavy, along comes The Spud. Limestone Pizza offers up a tasty pie covered in thin slices of purple (or blue, depending on the local distributors) potatoes, onions, bacon and rosemary. A dainty drizzle of crème fraîche gives the marinara-less pizza some moisture.

It's a colorful feast for the eyes — and the belly, of course.

Where to get it: Limestone Pizza + Kitchen + Bar, 814 Massachusetts St.

Try it with: A bit of Limestone's house sauce, a chili-garlic blend, if you'd like some heat. Or a nice, green salad.

Also on the menu: A few other "neoprairie pizzas," made with locally sourced ingredients like Kansas flour and tomatoes. Not in the mood for pizza? Limestone also serves a variety of appetizers, sandwiches, salads and pasta dishes.
