A few restaurants that don't typically specialize in pizza are offering pizza specials (or pizza-inspired specials) in celebration of Pizza Week 2014, starting today and lasting through Friday, March 21. Eat them while you can.
· Davio's: Offering a bay scallop creamy leek and La Quercia guanciale pizza for $17, available for lunch at Davio's Boston and Davio's Cucina in Chestnut Hill.
· Fairsted Kitchen: Offering pizza rolls late at night for $8. Onion, bacon, mushrooms, and house-made marinara.
· Russell House Tavern: Executive chef Tom Borgia is offering a "Greens, Eggs and Ham" pizza for $12 — arugula, poached eggs, house-cured ham, and taleggio. "We love doing house-cured meats and serving up the freshest local ingredients. I especially love eggs on pizza. It's something I had all the time in Italy, although they had a tendency to be over-cooked. We do it right. Very lightly poached and then taken out of the shell and finished on the pizza. The yolk needs to be runny or the experience just isn't the same."
· Strip-T's: Chef de cuisine Jared Forman is offering a pizza-inspired dish as a dinner appetizer for $13. "Hot Italian sausage stuffed with provolone, fermented broc rabe, pickled cherry peppers, and smoked and charred cippolinis. It is an ode to a sausage and broc rabe sicilian pie at Di Fara's in my old stomping ground of Midwood [in Brooklyn]. I would meet a friend there after getting off work while interning at Per Se. Epic!"
· TRADE: Offering a special flatbread: braised duck, black bean, kimchi, and yuzu aioli. It will be available during dinner only, for $15. "This is a very 'TRADE' flatbread," says executive chef Andrew Hebert.
