Plain flour, the creative pizza concept from the owners of Merriment Social and Third Coast Provisions, is getting closer to opening its dining room (722 N. Milwaukee St.). Executive chef/owner Andrew Miller launched the pizza emporium a few years ago as a pop-up, and plans have progressed towards creating a permanent home for it. But hey, COVID…
Now, however, the opening is about a month away, Miller says, and starting this Thursday (March 3), the restaurant will begin take-out service only on Thursday and Friday nights (5-9 p.m.). Transportation hours will last for the entire month of March.

Miller shared the initial take-out menu with me, and it’s got more than just pizza. For apps, they have cheesy garlic sticks, waffle fries, burrata toast, spicy crab rangoon spring rolls, zucchini cakes, and meatballs ($10-$15). There are three kinds of macaroni and cheese, including the classic (five cheeses), the buffalo chicken, and the Cremosa, which is the classic with vodka sauce, homemade sausage, and basil ($16-$21). Five types of sandwiches are available, such as Italian (with four types of Italian cold cuts), Shroomsteak (sliced Portobello mushroom steak), spicy fried chicken, and a fancy burger ($16-$17).
There are 13 pizzas to choose from and they feature a basic cheese, the Crab Rangoon Delight (with crab, marinated peppercorn cream cheese and wontons), Talk Curry to Me (vegetable pie with curry sauce Thai), Clam Confiture (with clams, white sauce, Yukon Gold potatoes and bacon) and Doritos Locos (which includes white sauce, confit chicken, cheese curds, Doritos, baja sauce and pico de gallo). Pizza $19-$25. Add dips like Calabrian Chilli Honey, Marinara, Spicy Ranch, even Ranch Flight, for $2 to $6.
