[Twin Cities - Roseville] Pizza Luce Roseville - Loaded Baked Potato Pizza and Pizza Athena!

On your first visit to a Pizza Lucé in the Twin Cities take a lot of friends. There are too many great specialty pizzas to try for just a party of two.

The crust. The sauce. Fresh ingredients. So many toppings and combinations to choose from … Those are some of the reasons I keep going to Pizza Lucé. (https://pizzaluce.com/)

Lucé serves its pizza in large slices that you can easily fold in half. Their hand-tossed crust is thin, but not too thin. The outer edge is just thick enough that you want to find a way to save some sauce and meat for the last few bites, but the crust is so soft and flavorful that if you have to eat a few bites plain you won’t be disappointed.

Lucé also caters. If you find yourself at a meeting anywhere in the Twin Cities area and someone asks “Where should we order from?” say Pizza Lucé and try a wide selection. At one meeting we ordered their baked potato pizza – my colleagues raved about it. I tried a piece and thought it was weird, but it’s the only flavor I’ve tried that I didn’t like. My daughter liked baked potato a lot when she tried it fresh at one of the restaurants.

If you are looking for a way to sample Lucé’s pizzas, go at lunchtime. You choose by the slice from the varieties offered each day. Or you could try their stand at Target Field, home to the Minnesota Twins baseball club. It’s in centerfield, behind Section 234. That’s where I first tried their Pizza Athena (pictured here). I loved it as will any fan of Kalamata olives, feta cheese and pizza. Others on the ballpark menu are meat and cheese. You can get a slice at the ballpark for $6.50-$7.50 or a whole pizza for $30-$36

If you have some less adventurous eaters in your party (or you are one yourself), you can build your own pizza. This is the sausage and pepperoni pizza.

Don’t forget the beer. They have a wide variety of craft beers and the American standards. The mugs are cold and refreshing.

Once you’ve tried a few specialty pizzas, you can, maybe, convince your not so adventuresome friends to experiment the next time the crowd goes out together.

If one of your friends doesn’t really like pizza (really?) there’s a lot to choose from on the menu. I hear that their hoagies are fresh and tasty, but if I go to a pizza restaurant, I have pizza, so there’s little chance I will eat a sandwich there. You will have to try it and let me know what you think.

Lucé has seven restaurants in the Twin Cities and one in Duluth. Try any one of them, or all of them. The ambiance changes, but the pizza is always great.

This is the Roseville location - There is a great patio and a huge indoor dining room. We also like the Pizza Luce just two blocks from Target Field, at 119 North 4th Street, Minneapolis. Each location has its own atmosphere.

This is Meredith - I love the loaded baked potato pizza! It's definitely a signature item on the Pizza Luce menu and propably has earned itself the cult favorite status. I posted a picture of this pizza on my Instagram and I got so many people commenting how great the pizza is and how it's their favorite "must order" pizza.
It's quite unique and I kind of want to travel back to Minnesota and eat this again soon. There's no tomato sauce. The crust is topped with mashed potatoes, broccoli, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, bacon, and comes with a side of sour cream. I'm sure it's about 1000 calories per slice, but I told myself that it's healthy because of the little trees on top.

If you've been to Pizza Luce, what's your go-to order?
