Dessert Calzones and more - March 23rd, 2010
I’m going to let Drew Lazor’s Meal Ticket write up do the talking, but in short here are the new menu items:
PBB Zone (Peanut Butter Bacon Zone)
Smorez Zone (enough said)
D.P. Dogs (A delicious hot dog wrapped in our house made dough)

Meal Ticket swung by the U-City location of D.P. Dough (33 S. 40th St.) to check out some brand-new menu offerings from the spot many consider to be Drunk Kid Valhalla.
Managing partner Mike Nagao says that while D.P. Dough is a chain that values product consistency across the board, he stressed to the founders that their urban location calls for a more pliable approach. (Many other locations sit in more remote college towns.) They agreed and gave him the green light to whip up some items unique to his store.
There are now D.P. Dogs, sizable all-beef franks wrapped in housemade dough (one for $1.99, or three for five bucks) and served with a secret cheese sauce. They’re doing cinnamon/sugar “CinnaSinStix” with housemade cream cheese icing, and some insane cheesy pesto sticks, as well. Then there are the real bad boys: The Dessert Zones. These things are serious. Especially the PBB Zone, for which Nagao combines a cannoli-like ricotta cheese mixture, chunky peanut butter and a sprinkling of crispy bacon (!). It’s a salty-sweet kind of thing for sure, but the bacon is pretty subtle throughout the whole thing, just a slightly savory foonote to what by all accounts is a really solid idea for something to eat after you’ve had 60 beers (it comes with a side of maple syrup). There’s also a gooey, melty S’morez Zone, combining chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs.
Nagao teases that hes got a Nutella and banana concoction in the R&D stages right now, but we’re fairly confident y’all can get your calzone-ified sugar fix with those two dessert items while you wait for that one to drop.
