Social Distancing: The Taste Of Victory
Pizza Honors Spuds After Winning Best HS Nickname In Minnesota
High School football is delayed until spring in Minnesota this year due to COVID-19, but you can still celebrate a rousing Spuds victory Thursday anyway.
The Spuds won the Minnesota State High School League Nickname Challenge, beating 63 other mascots across the state. That’s that winning tater. The contest was conjured up as kind of a way to still compete during the pandemic.
The Spuds beat the Blooming Prairie Awesome Blossoms by less than a percent in the final.
To honor the final two, Pizza Barn in Princeton, Minnesota created pizzas inspired by the two final schools.
Their pizza of the month for August is “The Spuddy”.
It’s got a garlic butter base that’s their own secret recipe.
Then they tried tater toppings until they landed on roasted baby red potatoes with rosemary and garlic.
You got cheddar and mozzarella, bacon crumbles, chives and some seasoning salt on top.
And it comes with a side of sour cream. I’m salivating.
And here’s where I get to pretend I’m Oprah and say you can get on that delicious victory.
The people behind the Moorhead Spud History social media pages are driving down to Princeton to pick up take-out Spuddy pizzas to bring back to town. That’s a 400 mile round trip! And some serious spud pride.
You can order online by clicking here or give the Pizza Barn in Princeton a call at (763)-389-4663 to order. Just say it’s part of the Moorhead pick-up.
They’ll deliver the pizzas back to Moorhead High School around 7 p.m. Thursday.
