There’s a new covert pizza alternative operating out of a secret location on Goat Hill here in Duluth. Pirate Pizza delivers home made pizza from a home made oven with largely local ingredients to your door via a motorbike that once, according to the pirates, “used to run contraband around the Gaza strip.”
According to Sam Larsen, one of the pizza pirates, they use local ingredients including a goat cheese from real goats on Goat Hill. Favorite topping combos are plum habanero and thai chicken peanut.
Right now Pirate Pizza only delivers where they want, which includes East Hillside to Spirit Valley. “But I don’t think we’d go out to Hermantown,” said Larsen.
Prices? Pirates don’t need no stinking set prices. It’s kind of a “name your price” system. Larsen says the typical range is $7 to $15.
Right now Pirate Pizza is only operating on Fridays starting sometime around 4 p.m. until they run out of supplies. You can contact one of the three pirates listed below to make an order and haggle a price:
- Sam – 556-8166
- Dennis – 766-7189
- Derek – 556-5379
Larsen says that the pirates will keep operating while the weather is decent and plan to ride again next summer.
So, has anyone had a Pirate Pizza yet? I’m curious to try one myself. I may get one tomorrow.
Of course, the pirates operate on the borders of legality so I asked explicitly for permission to post this. Larsen said it was fine and he welcomed it.
