#WeeklyDish (No. 34): Yukon Gold Potato & Pecorino Pizzetta at Reilly

Burrito = mini burro. Pizzetta = mini pizza. Glad we got that out of the way.

Even if you are capable of eating a large pizza by yourself, is that ever a good idea? A pizza can be part of a well-balanced meal.

At Reilly Craft Pizza & Drink, the $10 lunch special includes a six-inch pizzetta and a side salad. All 11 pizzas are splendid, but today let’s focus on an usual pizza topping: potato.

The Yukon Gold Potato & Pecorino Pizzetta (say that three times fast) features slices of potato, mozzarella, roasted garlic, rosemary, and pecorino.

Starch-on-starch isn’t a popular combination, but in this application, the crisp crust contrasts with the creamy potato. Mozzarella augments the richness, while the classic combination of garlic and rosemary provides savory complexity. A generous sprinkling of grated parmesan boosts both the umami and adds a touch of salt, the potato’s best friend.

You won’t miss the meat with this gem of a pizza.

Reilly Craft Pizza & Drink is located at 101 E. Pennington St. For more information, call (520) 882-5550 or visit reillypizza.com.
