Happy Hump Day!
Last night Kayla, Kari and I met up for our last Sister Dinner: Pizza Edition. We met at Element Pizza in NorthEast Minneapolis and since I tend to get off work earlier, I headed over and enjoyed a nice glass of cabernet and a caesar salad on the patio while I waited for the girls to arrive.
Element is different then any of the other pizza places we visited because you order and pay at a counter and they give you a number and bring your food out to you.
We started with the Sampler and ordered one of their special pizzas, Buffalo Chicken, and the Fire pizza.
Sampler: humus, spicy feta cheese dip, salami, prosciutto, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onion (and a huge place of delicious rosemary flat bread)
Buffalo Chicken: Buffalo sauce, chicken, gorgonzola
Fire: Spicy sausage, roasted red pepper, goat cheese and basil.
We all really enjoyed the pizza and the crust was nice and thin, just the way I like it. They advertise that their pizzas cook in just two minutes in their wood burning stove. I liked the style of ordering at a counter. It gave us the opportunity to sit and take our time without feeling guilty of taking up a table.
Next up? Sister Dinner: Juicy Lucy's! If you aren't from Minnesota, you might not know what a Juicy/Jucy Lucy is. It is a burger stuffed with cheese and the 5-8 Club and Matt's Bar have a long standing battle of who is the originator of the Juicy/Jucy Lucy. You can bet that we will be visiting those two locations.
Take a look back at all the pizza locations around the Twin Cities that we visited this summer.
