Indian food in Minnesota has seen a real shift in recent years.

A Plymouth institution, Latuff’s makes pizzas laden with cheese and a wide variety of toppings. Owner Mike Latuff has said in interviews that he will not eat anyone’s pizza except his own, and with recipes like the Latuff Special (pepperoni and sausage with olives, peppers and onions) it is not hard to see why. Despite the pizzas, however, the restaurant’s real winner is its acclaimed lasagna, with their take on the classic based around a tomato sauce cooked for five hours, and then baked with their home-made sausage, pasta and five different sorts of cheese.
